:?: Why apologise - you don't say you're responsible for the formatting? :P

I hope this will wrap up soon. Just let me know if you need anything more or else during editing.
Cheers,
Ava.

Good news! I just have some little teensy weensy wee mistakes to correct and then I'll be finished editing Katisha. (For example I said "teensy weensy" instead of "teeny weeny" -- oops :oops: ).

...but I should have her uploaded very soon.

And here is Katisha, Act 2.

For the final song with the "yum yum" and "dum dum" and such, I recorded it twice because I thought the first version may be too slow (in Katisha style). So if you need to coordinate with others, I have a faster version following it.

So sorry that I seem to have missed this! I've checked it now and it is all PL OK! :thumbs: Thanks very much - especially for that hilarious sequence about "He did not love me, but he would have! I was educating his palate..." :D

The chorus sections are fine - one or the other version should fit, though actually as the chorus is singing this last song TO Katisha, she's probably the one voice that won't appear in the final chorus, if we have enough people.

Thanks! I loved that section too. Katisha is a fun character to play -- she ranges from tragic to comedic... :lol:

I would have thought so too, but in the Australian version I watched on YouTube, Katisha sang that last section -- she seemed to have reconciled herself to the new arrangement -- she did find another husband, after all... :D

In the second, faster version, I used a bit higher (not-so-Katisha) voice, if you want to use it as one of the chorus (or not -- see what works).

Thanks for doing this project -- this is a mighty task to take on!

Well, I have my editor to thank! Devorah is doing the work of putting it all together! :9:

Once this one is done, I'm considering doing "Gondoliers" next - that one has some funny stuff with the two husbands and three wives...

Hi Beth,

Here are Nanki-Poo's sections:

I recorded many 'All' lines, as well, but probably too many (it was hard to tell if/when my character was on stage). You can use them or discard them if needed. Hope this will bring the play to a close (unless the male choruses are still necessary). :thumbs:
