I found that NA may mean "Naval Air" and checked what this could mean (sounded dubious to me). Seems like the navy also operates airforces: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_aviation

Got it ... “National Army”

I'd love to claim Billy if you'll have me.

Welcome. You can only claim one part in the play, particularly in the same act, with the exception being where I have merged the Bell Hop and Boy parts together.

I reserved your first selection. If your want the maid instead, I can swap it.

Thanks, Todd

If you scroll through the source text from the first posting, Act 3 starts on page 101.

Thanks, Todd

so here is Mrs Smythe, hopefully suitably vampy-femme-fataly enough for your purposes. I figured, recording in a red silken négligé, cognac in hand, would help matters along. :mrgreen:

Recording time: 6:18 min.

Recording time: 9:41 min.

Oh and apart for one sentence, I decided not to join the crowd readings, because on each occasion, I had a sentence right before or after the merged voices, so I figured it wasn't at all logical she would join there as well. If you think you need one sentence, let me know, and I'll add it.

Great. I'll have to find a cigar to chew on while I PL this.

Thanks, Todd

I'll take the stage directions, Todd.
Or perhaps the Maid - whichever you think suits me best.
