I'm a big fan of Shakespeare, and I find the idea of reading fake Shakespeare to be delightful! If possible, could I read for the part of Uter Pendragon?

Here is Lucina (the name reference took me a while... :lol: )
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/birthofmerlin_lucina_3_128kb.mp3

I was not sure whether the first part right after her entrance was spoken by her or the devil. :hmm: That's why I included it, but it's easy to cut out since she only has one other line later.
Cheers, Ava.

Welcome to Librivox. I will hold the part for you while the test file is reviewed for proper settings. Please let me know when it is okayed.

(We also have a Shakespeare Monologue collection underway if you want "real" Shakespeare.)

Thanks, Todd

it's a bit disturbing to think that this newborn child is already fully grown up :lol: a very strange part of the plot. You make your Merlin a bit cheeky and full of himself, which is probably very accurate for this character :mrgreen: (at least he loves his mom)

Well done, and PL ok so far. Thank you, Alan !

:hmm: good question...I think it's the Devil giving instructions in the beginning, but it could just as well be Lucina. Let's leave it in and Todd can decide in the end :thumbs: In any case, both speeches are perfectly delivered and flawlessly PL ok. Thank you so much. Pity she didn't have a longer role.

only your volume is barely 83 dB, I'll make a note for Todd to amplify before editing.

Thanks

This looks like fun! Mind if I take on Donobert for Act I? I can probably do the rest of the acts as well, but this will be my first reading here so I don't want to overcommit upfront.
