Hi Elijah!
There are lots of open parts in this project. It would be great if you could take one (or more!)
A dramatic reading is different from a regular reading of a book because instead of claiming a chapter and reading the whole chapter, you claim a character and record only the lines assigned to that character.
To see what lines to read, read from the scripts. Here's one. If you wanted to read, say, the Little Boy, you would read only the lines in light blue, each separated by a few seconds of silence. Does that make sense?
Thank you!
Rachel

Here's Ben Ali, the Barbary Dragon - I had a minute and a half and I felt like a bit of being silly. This is my "male voice" processing, as I felt it suited the character.

Thank you! PL OK!

Thanks so much!

Thank you, but since Jip and the little boy appear in two of the same chapters, I'm going to ask you to take only one of them. Which one would you like? :)
