Another one so soon Elizabeth :D

I'll be DPL if you wish and I'll look over a couple of small roles. :wink:

mb, Shipley, Kaffen, and Raeubertochter - thank you all so much! You're in the Magic Window!

aradlaw, yeah, I know - R&J isn't even quite done and I'm taking this on. Glutton for punishment, I guess. :) Thanks so much for the offer to DPL - I'll put you in the system. And you're welcome to any of the roles you'd like to read.

Oh, I just love dramas! :D (Hmm... have I said that before?)

I see that the narrator is taken, so no easy thingy for me... The duchess of York should probably sound a bit older? But I think I could definitely do the daughter of Clarence - Section 22 - if you'd have me? Pretty please? :D

I think you won't have problems with the pronounciation of Gloucester - it's written Gloster all over the play - probably to ensure them Americans get it right... :lol:
Cheers,
Ava.

I just looked at the ghosts, as these seemed like fun, and was wondering whether Henry VI and prince Edward (49 & 50) appear as living before (I haven't read the whole piece), as the other ghosts in 5.3 are read by the same people who have the corresponding living part as well. If not, please ignore the post ....

May I take the part of Clarence, please? And, as an aside, does this mean that you've decided for the time being not to do The Winter's Tale? If so, :( , but this one should be fun. :)

Availle, Bob, and aradlaw, thank you so much! You are in the MW.

Bob, re. Winter's Tale - yep, that one will have to wait. I decided on Richard instead purely because I couldn't figure out what to do about all the music in the Winter's Tale... pathetic, no?

Good question, Raeubertochter. Henry VI and Prince Edward only appear as ghosts in the play, because Richard murders them before the action of the play begins. Shakespeare was writing this as the concluding installment of a four-play series, and his audiences would have remembered seeing Henry and Edward killed in the last play (Henry VI Part 3). Slightly more complex for today's audiences, though... :wink:

Sorry for the mini-lecture... it's the Shakespeare prof in me.

I'll take the Duchess of York!

May I claim #13, Lord Hastings?

I've never read a dramatic part for LV before. For each act do I basically just record a file with all my character's lines back-to-back (with suitable pauses between)?

Thank you, Pete - you're in the Magic Window. And yep, you've got it exactly right. :)
