nothing to improve on this one, it's absolutely great the way it is. :thumbs: Haha, and the final Hurray is really heart-felt and enthusiastic. You may well stand out from the crowd with that one. :lol: Oh and I especially loved the line when you found the broomstick. You sound perfectly faux-astonished and excited in that scene. :mrgreen:

Thank you so much for participating in this play, Roger ! :9:

PL ok

Hmm. I thought I posted this after my library editing session, but I guess not.
So, here is the whiny, slimy, the honorable Mr. Twist:

I'll have Act II edited shortly.

ETA: Oh, here it is:

super done, Larry :clap: I like Twist, he is the only of the beggars who is really nice. Well luckily at the end och Act 2 they are all friends, so it's a happy ending.

I love the whining voice when you are showcasing your twisted arm and leg :lol: I am so looking forward to hearing the pathetic whining of the 4 beggars all merged together. This will be a great comic relief, I suspect. :mrgreen:

I have a few small notes here though:

for Act 1: (actually both are optional as Todd can work around it if it's too much trouble for you to edit)

> at 3:21: (p. 170) “And the prettiest of them...etc” you could leave out a bit more space before this

> at 3:35: (p. 171) “But it touched his genius...etc” I had a bit of a time finding this back now LOL this can be cut out, it’s the Second Woman saying this. You got confused because she starts the line with naming Twist, belonging to the preceding sentence.

for Act 2:

> at about 0:05: (p. 181) missing lines: “Master Blat ! Whimp ! Squeak ! Couldn’t you lay off a bit ? I’m as lonely as an owl. Dear friends, sit with me; for lonesomeness is more grievous than a jumping tooth. I can sit thin. There’s room for all of us.

the rest is absolutely fine. You did not join in the Hurray shouts, but considering that Twist is still standing on the gallows while the crowd cheers on the syndic, I think it's understandable he doesn't join in :mrgreen: So no ALL lines for you.

Thanks !

Sonia

The renowned man of advanced learning and the scholarly acquisition of knowledge, Dr. Bombastes:
wonderful, TJ 8-) This guy definitely doesn't suffer from self-doubt or humility. :lol: I love the deep, a bit slurry, voice you are doing throughout the performance. It really gives him an air of arrogance and utter contempt for the mere mortals around him.

Perfect performance. PL ok !

Thanks !

Here are my roles:

The Girl of Act 1:

And the voice in the Crowd from act 2. I tried to speak this away from the mic a little to give a "from away" kind of tone.

thank you, Ava, both are PL ok. I especially like the forceful voice in the crowd cheering for the Syndic. :thumbs:

The girl could have been included in the "Hurray" line in Act 1 as well. But since you gave us a great Hurray in Act 2, this one could be used as well. :) Nothing to add.

Only note for Todd: girl is only a bit above 83 dB, needs amplification.
