The acts seemed really long in the book, so I'd imagine they all will. I can't wait to hear it all put together!

So, ummmm... I found out I mispronounced "candelabra" in Act 2 @ 1:12, and it REALLY bugs me (--my own little Twinkle-version sounds ridiculous, in my opinion). :shock:
It doesn't change the meaning of the story or anything, or course, but if you want me to fix that, believe me, I'd be happy to! (Although I realize this might be a little late -- sorry! :lol: )

If it really bothers you, feel free to fix it - I haven't started on Act 2 yet so it's not too late :D

I remember hearing it said differently than I would have, but I don't ever know how other people learn words, so I let it go. :)

That's fine! I can understand that. I think I actually recorded it two different ways, but then cut out the wrong one! :oops: :lol:

Act 1:

I'd love any feedback on the editing, if you don't mind - are some lines too close together or far apart, are there stage directions you think should be taken out or left in... Or anything of the sort :)

Oh, and take your time - it'll be a little while before I have any more up. Thank you!

Act 1 is PL OK!

I thought it flowed nicely, and even the parts where people were talking in unison sounded as I imagine it would on stage.

Thanks! Just waiting for another correction from someone else and Act 2 will be all edited. I've started on Act 3.
