Full in 3 hours?? Oh my. Guess some folks had "be in a play" on their New Year's Resolution lists.

All right, I'll start preparing more.

Thanks, Todd

so here is the first act for Hilda. Wow this is tearing on our heart-strings indeed. I had some sobbing moments here, especially in the final act. Still need to edit those, but all is recorded. I recorded this right after "Katie" from the Woman-Tamer... talk about switching characters to extremes here.

and the very tearful finale :cry: highly emotional for me... I had no problems thinking how I would feel if my sister died like that.

I love the part where Hilda is angry with Death.

Wow. This is not the Gilbert of three little maids or dancing sailors and kindhearted pirates, but a terrific playwright putting us all through the wringer of despair. I particularly liked "A weary while I wept" and "But Time's an alchymist who changes gold to dross".

And you play it wonderfully. PL OK.

I despair at making Mousta a fitting counterpoint to Hilda's character. I should have recorded my lines before listening to yours!

Thanks, Todd

strangely enough that was one of the few lines I had to re-record, because I made a mistake in it. Happy that you like the outcome.

I am quite confident that you will be a perfect Mousta. You can merge your pathetic to your villainous nature in this play, it's a dream-role. :mrgreen:

Here are the lines for Lady Amanthis. This play is definitely not what I expected from Gilbert!

quite a short part, but a lovely characterization, Jenn :9: full of empathy and sweetness. Thank you so much, this is straight PL ok.

aww Melusine is very endearing, especially in act 3. In the first act I think you gave her a bit of a douting mocking undertone, as if she didn't really believe in these speaking objects. But she succumbed to the temptation in the end anyway. :thumbs: Nice characterization, loved it.

Totally PL ok, thank you, Eva !
