And this should be the end of Manly (unless I royally screwed something up... which is highly likely).

aww you're really being too hard on yourself, Chuck. I loved Manly's final monologue (rather: harangue !) very much :9: You really put your all in it. Super done !

only one note left to correct for Act 5 (some missing lines again, sorry):

> at about 0:29: seven missing lines from bottom p. 343/top 344: "Are you phrenetic, sir ? [....] Do not conclude against us ere you hear us."
I actually found the "phrenetic" quote at 0:50, so could you please paste it to the correct spot. And the other 6 lines are still missing

Oh, and the corrected Manly Act 4 is PL ok now. :thumbs:

Thanks Chuck, you're almost done here !

You know, I think I recorded that bit but caught my dog snoring in the background... so naturally, I had planned on re-recording but just forgot. Whoops!

Here's the file with the new line.

thank you Joe :)

:lol: you are excellent here as Sledge, somehow making him sound like some bumbling plodding policeman. Well done. He did not have enough to say in my opinion.

Could you only give us your full voice credit at the beginning, then all is correct:
“Sledge, a Smith, the Constable, read by Joseph Tabler"

thanks

Sonia

hey Adriana :) Of course you can, I sign you up. And look forward to your performance.

As this is your first participation in a stage play, here are a few directions, which are special for Drama recordings.

> we need a voice credit from you, here you have to say at the beginning of your file: "Keeper 2, read by Adriana Sacciotto". You do not need to read the LV disclaimer for drama.

> between each of your reading "block" please leave at least 2 seconds of silence. The editor will need to cut out each of your speeches and paste them in a master file, so we need to have enough space to cut and fiddle with the file. ;)

> apart from that, just have fun, and don't fear to be as dramatic as possible :thumbs:

Oh, that was quick and marvelous! :clap:
Thank you again, Sonia! :thumbs:

You (or Pug!) are surely going to inspire me in this first acting of mine.

I promise I'll do my best! :9: :D

Now that this project has been bumped to the top, I wonder if I could read Sir Paul Eitherside? It's a small part, short enough that I think I can manage a male-sounding voice for it.

I can only say WOW ! So this is what you sound like in English :clap: absolutely perfect for your first drama. You intonate perfectly and you're really creating a character. I love that he is so astonished and a bit angry as well. This is exactly what we need. I am only sorry the scene is so short :lol:

This one is PL ok, and I look forward to your next contributions. I have a feeling, your roles will become longer soon ;)

Thank you for helping out, Adriana !

Sonia
