Salut Kelly,

Puis-je s'il vous plaît réclamer le rôle de Beauseant?

Je vous remercie,

Wayne

Hi Kelly,

May I claim the part of Beauseant?

Thank you,

Wayne

P.S. I don't speak French. :lol:
Bien sur, ma cher! (Neither do I!) Welcome to the cast!

Hi Kelly,
That's great! Please let me know if there are any specific things to look for while proof-listening to a play. I've previously only done a section or two.

Many thanks,
Lora

I like what you're doing with the accent. Beauseaunt is somewhat like an evil Maurice Chevalier at this point. I think you go even further with the character. After all, this is a melodrama and he is our antagonist. You don't want to make him too extreme, but bring out his vanity and arrogance a touch more. Before he speaks, imagine him saying to himself, "Oh, the impudence!" or "I'm outraged!" or "I've completely outwitted them! They'll never suspect!" Give him more of sneer.

Great insight. I will try to put your ideas in to action. :twisted:

Hmmm. I believe the final "s" on Deschappelles is silent. Am I wrong? Just checking.

Thanks,
Wendy
