:lol: I already laughed at the voice credit. :thumbs: And then the sing-song in the beginning was a funny touch. One can't take this story too serious. :mrgreen: Excellent job, Adrian, both acts PL ok. Act 2 is Act 3 though, but that doesn't matter, I'll put it in the correct slot in the MW.

Thank you !!

Todd: Acts 1 and 3 are ready for final editing then. Only missing one voice credit for Act 1.

I have PM'd our last reader. They still have a couple weeks left on their claim.

Thanks, Todd

Acts 1 and 3 ready for final PL. (Voice credit missing in Act 1 for the last reader part.)

You all sound great. Sorry that - well, I won't spoil it.

Interesting that in The Childe Hath Found His Father we have Merlin with a Red Dragon fighting, but here Merlin beholds a Red Cow....

Thanks, Todd

No, don't be worried. You know how it ends, having PL'd about 1200 voice parts in the play through Act 3 already.

Thanks, Todd

finally got around to listen to both acts and they are a hoot :lol: I love it that we are all camping it up quite a bit and not taking it too serious, I think this is exactly how it should have been played. :thumbs: Great job all of you, and excellently edited, Todd.

except for the missing voice credit at 18:08 in Act 1, both Acts are PL ok.

Thanks for the laughs !

I know it's not good to record before claiming, but I was able to do the Follower right away so you can wrap things up here:

thanks for the fast turn-around, Tomas. And you're an excellent follower, I love the accent :lol: Oh and the camped-up dying scene is wonderfully funny too. We all had our moment of glory in our dying scenes it seems :lol:

PL ok and that means all the play can get the final polish by our editor-extraordinaire. 8-)

thanks

:lol: How we were all able to keep a straight face while saying this nonsense is a mystery to me now that I listened to this act. Especially the first scene with Huncamunca and Grizzle is so over-the-top, they sound romantic while actually what they are saying is kinda below the belt (especially Grizzle) :lol: I had to giggle at many parts here.

Guys, you all showed your comedic talent in this one ! :thumbs:

Perfectly assembled too, Todd ! Yes, wonderfully entertaining and absolutely PL ok. (also act 1)

That means, we can draw the curtain on Tom Thumb and get it to the catalogue. :)

Thank you all

Sonia
