Act 2 (pg 77, PDF pg 90) https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_glumdalca_2_128kb.mp3
Act 3 (pg 96, PDF pg 109) https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_glumdalca_3_128kb.mp3 (I did 2 death lines in this one, one more dramatic than the other. You choose.) ;)
I personally like the second version best, it's more dramatic and life-like :lol: and I think one cannot be too over-the-top in this satire. Well done, Tricia :thumbs: Glumdalca is a force to reckon with. And both acts PL ok

thank you

I have rerecorded the voice credit, as requested. I will try to remember to read the voice credit exactly as stated in the magic window in the future.

Hi Todd,

I see that you only have two characters left to finish this one out, and I was wondering if I could claim both of them. They are both very short parts, and I am sure, even though they are speaking to each other, I can make the voices so there isn't any confusion (and neither one of the will be Cockney :lol: ).

Thanks for the consideration,

Wayne

P.S. And I was just looking at the script again, and when they are speaking those few line to each other, I could just do them without a break and make a little less work for you (I think :) )

I'd really like separate readers - give more people a chance to participate. (That for example is why I'm also running about 2x my usual number as well.)

Thanks, Todd

Doll? Oh, Doll? I have left to go rest a while in the MW where you may findest me. Though perhaps as but a passing shade of a ghost....

Thanks, Todd

I found thee all right... loved the dying groans :thumbs: I always find it funny when people die on stage and still launch off into a monologue before expiring for good. So you get two dying groans, lucky you. This play will be really really hilarious, we are all so silly :lol:

Act 2 is already PL ok...

I have a huge complaint for act 1 though :evil: (almost unforgivable, a reason for divorce)

> at 0:04: husband to queen Dollallolla" - I must protest against you calling me Dolladolla ! :evil: even if it is only the voice credit

an optional comment for Act 3:

> at 1:40: "D__n" - do you want to say only "dee" here ? I think a mumbled, under-breath "damn" would convey it well too. But this is up to you

thanks for this entertaining listen

I called myself back from the dead and fixed Act 1 - note that every time I said your name in my original recording it was with the extra "D" - I thought I had fixed them all before the first upload. Whoops. Guess that is why I should just call you Doll. Or Loll....

I am not sure yet what I want to do about the Act 3 "D__" ....

Thanks, Todd

:lol: you know when I heard the voice credit I was already afraid it would turn out a Glyda/Glynda disaster (which you surely remember ;) ) and I was bracing myself to time-stamp every single moment you said the name. And mentally writing up a tirade you wouldn't forget in your lifetime....you have been spared this now.

PL ok now :)

Hello, I am editing my claimed sections; 06 & 07 as Foodle. I do have items recorded for both sections though I can not seem to find the text once again. My editing for section 06 will not happen. Looking at the text, Foodle is not mentioned for section 1 while his name is mentioned for section 2. :hmm: This is in reference to "Following the scene number the roles are listed." I think it best if I give these sections and the role of Foodle back so it can be put in the mw as open and claimed and read by someone else.
My apologies,
April

Stage directions for acts 2 and 3:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_narrator_2_128kb.mp3 @ 1.35
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_narrator_3_128kb.mp3 @ 2.17

Act 1 will take a bit more time to edit, on account of (a) the very long introduction and (b) the loads of Latin. 8-)
