Thanks for the compliment. I do know it well, not only from having played it on stage, but because for many years the Mikado's song was my standard audition piece, which I sang when auditioning for anything. That is why I could not resist the temptation to burst into a semi-sung version when recording this, even though you had specified no singing.
Glad it is acceptable.

I am going to have to withdraw as Katisha and as editor for this project.

I realize it's been two months since I claimed my part, and I'm ready to do it whenever you get the templates up. :D

Sorry about that. I got caught up in clean up month and haven't done it.

Since you are first, why don't you go ahead and everyone can match your recording instead! :thumbs:

Um...okay. We're just saying the lines with a sort of rhythm/beat, not actually singing them, right? I'll do my best... :|

If you like, have a listen to my production of Patience or Iolanthe - read it like poetry.

Esther
If you listen to the male chorus template for act 1, which is in MW, it will give you guide to the style required.
Just a suggestion.

I'm working on Peep-Bo right now, but I have a question--what do I read?
Do I read:
A) Just the lines marked Peep-Bo and Peep
B) the girl's chorus lines
C) the parts marked chorus, all, chorus of nobles

Also, when it says etc., do I repeat the part that it means or do I say et cetera?
Thanks!

Please read all Peep-Bo and female chorus and "all" lines. Don't read "chorus of nobles" that's the male chorus. Please give me a full repeat, as if it were a sung repeat of a chorus - don't say et cetera!

There's a Japanese pronunciation file, but it's mostly pretty straightforward!
