Question: my role (Lily) has a song in Act 1 ("I've a very charming dwelling ..."), should I
a) sing this to an existing melody
b) sing this to a made up melody
c) not sing, but read it?
Foon - Real life is getting in the way of LV, will be slow until all is back on track, please bear with me!

I prefer "c" - just read it.

Thanks, Todd

Hey all - Cranking them out this week!
Here is Sam de Castro - I have also recorded "men" and "others" when they arose in the script.

Speaking with a lisp was harder than I thought it would be. I often had to repeat the line 3 or 4 times til I could get it right. Please let me know if any of it is too difficult to understand.

Thanks
Aaron
Sorry - didn't want this to get lost - as I noticed they weren't in the MW yet. Thanks! :)

Todd, I finished Jimmie Birch just now (and had fun doing that). I love playing the tough "best buddy".

Now I am back to working off my PL-job-backlog. Aaron: stay tuned, you're not forgotten. I only sometimes want to record my own stuff as well ;)

:lol:
No hurry at all. I have stuff that's been waiting way way longer for PL! (shhh - I've got one that's been sitting around since March 20! :shock: ) I don't mind. I just didn't want it to get lost, off the chart.

none of my projects though, I hope ! I try to give feedback at the latest after a day or two. Usually try to finish all my jobs the same day.

In any case....Sam de Castro is a hoot :lol: Why does he remind me of a character from the Loony Tunes ? There was one who had a pronounced lisp, wasn't there ? I can't remember which one though. :hmm:

Brilliant job, I bet it must have been hard to keep that up. I personally never try to do a lisp because I know I won't sound convincing. You did a great job here. There was only once where you lost the lisp when you said "Goddess" :mrgreen: but that's gonna be spoken in chorus, so it won't get noticed ;)

All of Castro: PL ok. Highly entertaining ! I love it when he pouts and plays the hurt party in the 2nd act with Gabrielle. :thumbs: He's a bit of a drama queen himself, isn't he ?

Ha, ha. Yep, the lisp was super hard. I did most if my lines 2 or 3 times before I got them right. It was fun to try something new though.

I've been debating whether or not to pick up a role for this. In looking at the script, I can't find any lines for Olga. Are you sure she has a speaking role?

Olga is one of the 4 beauties and they are named as such in the play. She only speaks in chorus I'm afraid. There is still one female individual role left and that is Gabrielle Kato. I tried her first, but then I switched because Jimmie suited me more. She appears in 2 acts and has medium length. About 5 minutes total I'd say. If you want to give her a shot. She's often depressed and unhappy about her situation :mrgreen:

If Olga just has a few chorus lines, I'd be happy to take her. I would only want to take on a very tiny role anyway, since I have such a backlog at the moment. I may need some help finding all her lines, though.

ok I sign you up then. I would say, do all the "Four Beauties" lines (I think there are only two or three) and all those marked "Ladies", "Some Ladies", "Other Ladies". They appear in a cluster shortly after the 4 Beauties. Even if you miss one line, we will have plenty already to make a crowd noise with, so don't worry.

Thanks, I'll sign you up !

Here is Sibyl, who is very shy and not talking much. Not on her own, at least...
