Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter (1868-1920)
The story begins when Pollyanna arrives in Beldingsville to live with her Aunt Polly, a strict and dutiful middle aged woman. Pollyanna immediately begins to brighten up everyone's life by the "Glad Game." Trying to find something to be glad about in every situation, Pollyanna is happy, joyful, lively, and soon transforms the whole town. One day something so terrible happens, even Pollyanna doesn't know how to be glad about it.(Summary by Abigail Rasmussen)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/pollyanna-dramatic-version-by-eleanor-h-porter/
  1. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). 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.
    The target completion date for this project is December 2013
  2. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a role 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 role you’d like to read. 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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1450
    [*]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.

    At the beginning: Chapter [#] of [Title], by [author]. This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit Librivox dot org.

Absolutely! Thank you, Lani :) When we get a MW I'll be linking all the text chapters to each character but until then, I'll give you the links to Mrs. Snow's chapters. She has lines in two chapters: 8 & 10

Can I be the DPL? It may sound strange seeing as I'm not a girl, but I really liked the book back when I read it- some 15 years ago or more :mrgreen:

Note: I've never PLed a dramatic reading. Is this any different to PLing a standard reading?

Hi, Piotrek81, thank you for the offer. Since I'm the BC and will be editing everything, I'd like to do the first PL'ing of the individual lines. I do however need someone to PL the completed edited parts and also any role I take on for myself. It will be a while before we have any edited chapters ready for you but if you'd like to, I'd love the assistance at the end!
Thanks,
Abigail
