A Kiss for Cinderella by J. M. Barrie (1860 - 1937).

This play does have Cinderella and a Godmother, Royal Ball, and glass slippers, but it takes place in WW1 and is certainly not your typical fairy tale. Produced on Broadway in 1916, it was made into a silent movie in 1925. (ToddHW)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/a-kiss-for-cinderella-by-j-m-barrie/
  • Gender neutral as usual. Note that the narrator has a lot of words in addition to the usual stage directions as Barrie describes a lot about how the play looks and feels as it goes on.

    1. 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.
    2. 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 would 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.
    3. New to recording?

      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/AKissForCinderella_JMBarrie
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

      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.

      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

I'd like to read Mr Bodie, if I may, please. It sounds very surreal.

The forum and database (the whole website) have temporarily lost everything since September 15.
Please do not post or upload anything you don't want lost when the sysadmin retrieves the missing info from backup.
(Everything posted or uploaded on this current, missing-data version of the website will be lost.)

Hopefully all will be well and restored to what it was as of Friday morning shortly.

Thanks, Todd

Todd,
There's a post, some four hours after yours, asking for files to be uploaded again.

These have been PL'd as okay.

As you may have noticed, our servers got reset to September 15th, 2016 because of a software failure. Unfortunately, the failure was massive - we have not succeeded to recover any of the data since September 15th...

We are very sorry about this, but sometimes these things happen. We are trying to recover as much of your recordings as possible, but we will still your help - everybody's help with this. Please read the below carefully to see what you can do to help.

All files uploaded after September 15, and all changes to the database and the forum (including PL notes) have been lost and cannot be retrieved.

For readers:
* If you have already completed your recording and it received a PL OK, please reupload the file again and mention in your post that it was PL OK. Make sure you upload the correct file to help your DPL!
* If your file has not received any PL notes yet, please also reupload your file and state that there were no PL notes yet.
* If there were PL notes and you remember them - please fix the file accordingly and reupload the fixed file only. Please post which fixes you have done to help your DPL.
* If you have deleted your file, then maybe your DPL has a copy - please post in the thread and ask if she/he could upload it for you. If this is not possible, you will have to rerecord (or relinquish your claim if you don't want that).
* If you've claimed a section and your claim is not showing up in the MW, go ahead and reclaim.
For DPLs: If you have stored your PL notes, please post them in the thread again. If you don't have them, and you don't remember if a file was PL OK, please also post.

Thanks, Todd

(Thanks for the re-uploads just above this. MW updated.)
