Hello Trish,

I have just commited myself to a fairly extensive project, (which I shall totally enjoy!)
but this post caught my eye.

I had been considering doing 'Jungle Book' as a solo read - until I found that the last
Chapter consisted entirely of songs - I cannot sing!

However, if you do ever go ahead with this - could I please baggsie Sheer Khan?

I'm getting ready to launch a dramatic reading of Jack and Jill by Louisa May Alcott. It's a children's story chronicling the events following a sledding accident.

Would anyone like to be the narrator? I'll be ready to start pretty much as soon as someone volunteers. There are 24 chapters.

Also looking for an editor(s)!

EDIT: Narrator found.

The next collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories is now launched: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=76441&start=15

In particular there are some characters with accents, there's the posh English Lord St Simon (who is a bit of a duffer), the King of Bohemia (who needs an accent of some kind, I'm not too particular) a couple of German accented characters and a couple of American accented characters! The accent doesn't have to be your natural one, if you can produce a Western American accent (he's a gold rush miner) then you are welcome to claim the part!

Mostly gender neutral casting, except as marked in the MW.

Hi everyone,
I'm finally putting some finishing touches on my plans to launch The Jungle Book by Kipling as a DR. Would anyone be interested in editing it? I hope to launch it in the next week or two.

Readers needed:
Dramatic Reading: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Folklore/legends: Arabian Nights Vol. 11
Play: Zeus the Tragedian

Hello Foon,

Yes, I personally would very much be interested in working on 'The Jungle Book'.

I would like to read Sheer Khan myself, but even if it is just a case of editing other
people's voices - I would love to be involved!

HOWEVER - I recently broke a rib in my back (stupid accident!) - and it is astonishlingly painful.
(I was lucky though - an inch to the left and I could have landed on my spine.)

Anyways - I'm currently letting down Elizabby on a Sherlock Holmes project - so if you would like
me to let you down as well - gis a shout!

I am planning on doing this DR eventually, but am thinking with 13 others going right now waiting a few months might be a good idea. Not having been on here that long, I don't know, but is this area a bit saturated right now?

Anyhoo, expect to see it sometime. I plan on BC/Narration/Parts PLing and Editing myself...
