Hi,
I thought it was a little short. You're missing the DOT ORG in the introduction.
The narrator reads all the stage directions not assigned to the cast in addition to the intro and outro.
You would start with
The scene is placed in the drawing-room of Mr. and Mrs. Thaddeus Perkins, of New York. The time...
and bolded bit below:
Perkins. Third row; and, by Jove! Bess (looking at his watch), we must hurry. It is getting on towards eight now. The curtain rises at 8.15.
etc.

Kim,
I have never read a Narrator part. It seemed a bit small of a role, the way I had read it, to me also.
I will make it correct and resubmit it to you, :oops:

Hello Kim,
I just lightly skimmed the dramatic evening. The narrator's text looks to be italicized. I do understand my reading the stage directions. I have read the into and the outro in the bit I had already posted. I will read it anew and NOT forget the .org
Expect the new version to be posted on Monday, December 12, 2016.
:roll:

Hi,
The new recording needs to be noise cleaned.
I've created a document where the editor parts are highlighted in yellow (I may have missed one or 2, so keep a look out on the text). https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y8EKcgiwSC7WmpRHHdUnoX66KBEz9unfdw3FXwcGcbQ/edit#. See if this helps.

Kim,
I did as you had suggested & kept a look out on the text. I did come across a line that wasn't in your yellow highlighted parts. I did record it with the parts that you had highlighted in yellow ( which did help, thank you) plus the line you missed. :wink:

Please do have a listen and tell me if it worked out.
April

Hi Kim,
Mind if I claim 15? Do you prefer "stage directions read by" or "narrator read by"? I see the role has narrator but since this is a play and not a dr I figured I better ask.

Hi,
And nice that you're back recording! Probably Narrator read by, but if you feel strongly the other way I'm not fussed.

Here you go. Script was tough to spot, especially enters and exits. I had to go back for some pick ups. Hopefully I got them all. Let me know if you want any changes.

April I was just listening to your recording, as I had a bit of spare time, and for the most part it is very well. You forgot a few things, which you need to insert still.

> after 0:21: you forgot to read the characters. please insert all this:

CHARACTERS:
MR. THADDEUS PERKINS, a victim.
MR. EDWARD BRADLEY, a friend in disguise.
MR. ROBERT YARDSLEY, an amiable villain.
MR. JOHN BARLOW, the amiable villain’s assistant.
MRS. THADDEUS PERKINS, a martyr.
MRS. EDWARD BRADLEY, a woman of executive ability.
JENNIE, a housemaid.


> at 1:52: "Perkins (assuming a grin)" - you forgot to say Perkins

> after 2:36: missing line: Mrs. Bradley (to Mrs. Perkins).

The rest is all in. Only advice I could still give you, you need to leave more space between the separate "chunks" so that the editor has it easier to copy and paste. Most of your chunks are well spaced, but some are quite near to each other.

Still, well done for your first narrator job :)

Thanks Sonia. Do you want to continue as DPL? It is still open.
