The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum (1856 - 1919) .
The Marvelous Land of Oz Being an account of the further adventures of the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman and also the strange experiences of the highly magnified Woggle-Bug, Jack Pumpkin-head, the Animated Saw-Horse and the Gump; the story being A Sequel to The Wizard of Oz (Summary by L. Frank Baum)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-marvelous-land-of-oz-dramatic-reading-by-l-frank-baum/
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you'd like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (Please only read from the color-coded google docs in the Magic Window!!) http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54
    NOTE: If your character has a chapter with "ALL" included in the list of characters at the beginning of the chapter, please also read the "ALL" line. :D Thank you!
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

OK. I'll move this one off the main forum until the conditions you've met in the PM exchange a couple days ago are completed. PM one of the admins when your solo is done, and we'll move it back to the Launch Pad for you. :)

Also, edited my original post to reflect that it's a dramatic work (not a standard group project). If something in the first post doesn't look right, please let me know. :D I used a few existing DR's as a template.

Thanks Barry!

The MW says "Marvelous Land of Oz (version 2)" - can we note (dramatic reading) in there somewhere as well? I know that 2 of the 3 dramatic oz words are designated as such in the catalogue, but one isn't. :D

Elley,
I have never DPL'ed a dramatic work before and I have a quick question. Am I right in thinking that I'm PL'ing the following?
  • -The lines BEFORE they are put together in a chapter
    -The final chapters (once they're all put together)
Thanks so much! :)
