Ah... the joys of being multi-lingual... :D
haha yes, there are perks but also pitfalls in multilinguicity (is that a word ?) Sometimes I trip into "false-friends", words that I think have the same meaning in every language but then they don't and the situation becomes a bit embarrassing.

One incident I'll always remember is when I told someone I had an appointment with the dentist and I used the French word for it as I thought it had the same meaning in English. But this gave my sentence a whole new meaning: "I have a Rendez-Vous with the dentist" :oops:

Needless to say, I never did the same mistake again. :lol:

Hee hee! Hope your dentist is fine... ola la! :wink:

Jemmie Bowin act 5

I guess this Jemmie Bowin was a famous singer back in Steele's times. As if we had Pavarotti show up for the final scene nowadays :lol:

Well done, Alan. PL ok. Thanks !

I don't know if this is open for one bit role per act; if so, I could take Kate Matlock (ha, she's great), or maybe Bumpkin's two lines, or maybe that's too much - well, Sonia, assign me some or none, yeah?

Boy ready for PL!
Boy PL ok !

:mrgreen: you put up quite a high voice pitch here, Nemo :thumbs: well done to keep it throughout the 3 acts. I also love the bit of sing-song you used in the narration of the poem.

Thanks for the quick turn-around, both of you. :)
