3. Tonight we __________ (see) a play at the thereatre.

hmm..why is the verb "to see" and not "to watch"?

Thanks in advance!
I know of no rules governing this, but I think many people make this distinction:

I watched a movie (aired or on CD) last night [on television]. ~ I saw the new film/play [at the theater].

Generally, you go "see" a play or a movie. Once you're there, you may not watch it. You could be too busy necking with your boyfriend, for example.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
To me, you go to see a movie or play. But once you are in the cinema/theatre, you are watching the movie/play.

So, we should say, "Let's go to see a movie/play." It is not correct to say, "Let go to watch a movie/play."
Thank you Philip, Barb and Yoong Liat for your answers! Emotion: smile

Do you mean that it's similar to "hear" and "listen"?

I don't really know how to say it but can it be that when you "watch", you are more concentrated?
I'd say it's exactly the same.
