oh how lovely :9: Dorothy is such a sweet, gentle girl, and you played her brilliantly. Loved all the emotions you put in. There will be some tear-shedding over this play, I can tell. 8-)

Excellent job, Jenn ! All PL ok. Thank you so much

Sonia
Thank you, Sonia! Your kind words and encouragement always make my day :9:

Reuben act 3

This man is an appalling old windbag but I really enjoyed this role. What does that say about me :hmm:

oooh this guy is such a sleeze in this act :evil: despicable, indeed. But you convey the role very well I must say, shows your good theatrical talent ;) And the villains are often most memorable, so it's a great role after all :lol:

only two small things to correct:

> at 2:12: (p. 142) missed line: "then observe"

> at 2:19: (p. 142) "a benevolent fairy" - the picture of Reuben as a fairy is quite comical, and I don't think the words benevolent and fury fit well together ;)

thanks

Sonia

thank you, Alan, and now Reuben is all PL ok, done and dusted off for this play. :)

I'll probably be seeing you in the next one again ;)

Here's Ripley the fisherman, Todd, so better take that goat-skin of Eaux-de-vie off Queen Dolly and issue the ration of black coffee so the PLing can begin. :lol:

:lol: loved the scowling and accent you put on here, Chris. Brilliant performance, thanks so much.

I have a small note though (may be trivial...but since you called me Dolly :evil: , I figured I could annoy you a bit in return :mrgreen: )

> at 4:49 (p. 113) "I found him in the village asking for thee" – you say "town", for me a town is bigger than this village he probably lives in. (may be optional though)

Sonia
Here is Ripley corrected...
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/danldruce_ripley_1_128kb.mp3

Since I don’t want to risk another script correction by annoying Kitty with the Dolly thing, I’ll just confine myself to the etymology of Librivox terminology.

Contrary to a popular misconception, PL stands for “Proof Listener”, not “Princess Leia”. Though Librivox being an audio-only medium, we’ve never been able to determine one way or the other whether Kitty does in fact do all her PL-ing in the Princess’s white robes. Or possibly, that gold bikini. :roll:

Cheers,
Chris

And certainly, everyone can tell that Leia is wearing old style noise-isolating PL headphones in the first movies, which only became less visible earbuds when modern technology caught up later in the other films.

Thanks, Todd

perfectly PL ok now, thank you Chris

:lol: I don't see myself as Leia at all.... and I will probably not be around anymore when the dramatic reading is PD.

:mrgreen: the hair-style definitely left something to be desired

Apart from Tomas' voice credit, Act 1 is ready to edit !

awwww there is romantic love dripping from your every word here Tomas, especially in the opening scene :9: Geoffrey sounds completely smitten with Dorothy. Very well done. Thank you

However, two sentences are missing, so you are not yet off the hook:

Act 2:
> at about 9:14: (p. 139) you forgot to record the final sentence: "Dorothy, one word. Hear what I have to say."

Act 3:
> at about 0:01: (p. 144) here you forgot the very first sentence :lol: : "Master Druce !"

thanks, now we are really close to wrapping this up, you were the final role we were waiting for. 8-)

Todd: Act 1 is ready to get finalized as we have Tomas' voice credit now in Act 2 :)
