Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm picking up the job of coordinating this project. A hige thanks to The Poet and Kristin for all they've done so far.

In the next day or so, I'll be taking stock of the roles that are cast and the recordings that are in.

In the meantime, please feel free to post if there is a role you would like that appears not to have been cast.

The 'special rules' no longer apply.

I would be willing to take up another role, but they are all strictly male. If you have a role that you think could be played by a female, let me know and I'll gladly fill it.

Henry would probably do the Page, if I ask him. It's only three lines as far as I can tell. Go ahead and sign him up, and if he doesn't want to, I'll just do it :)

Should I worry about doing my part with a British accent? Or is that no longer a requirement?

Here is a pretty fast recording of Paris's last scene (his death). Let me know what you think

Jefferson,

You are officially Escalus! Many thanks for volunteering.

If you'd like to send in the file for one of your scenes, before you go too far, just so we can check your technical set-up...

Thanks!

No, it's no longer a requirement. However you feel most comfortable. I'm sure it'll be great, however you do it. :)

Ancilla,

I will come back to you, if that's OK. We'll need 'all hands in deck' to sweep up the musicians, watches etc.

Before then, if you see a bigger role you'd like, just let me know.. Or I'll let you know if I see one.... We'll meet in the middle somewhere! :D

Claire,

Have you done Act 2, Scene 2?

And there's a couple of scenes in Act 4, too.

(Sorry if it's all up in the forum. I'm trying to catch up!)

Hey all,

I've re-jigged the first post, separating the available roles from the cast ones.

We could really use someone to read Montague, and someone to read Capulet. That's pretty much a standard requirement, when putting on Romeo and Juliet, right? :D

Spread the word, folks, spread the word....

Ooops. I see I'm a bit too late. Ah well. If Henry decides he doesn't want to, I finally talked my son into doing it today. (I didn't want to volunteer him until I had the recordings actually in hand, given how quickly he can change his mind these days! On the bright side, he had fun after all, and so I might be able to get him to do other parts in the future. :)
