Act1: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/drummerorhauntedhouse_fantome_1_128kb.mp3
Since when is a ghost so anxious about sounding "Lights Out"?

Act 4: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/drummerorhauntedhouse_fantome_4_128kb.mp3
Wherein Fantome graduates from Mistress Abigal's Finishing College For Coxcombs. Luckily, Mistress Abigal grades on a curve.

Act 5: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/drummerorhauntedhouse_fantome_5_128kb.mp3
The biter bit.


Cheers,

Well done, Chris! I thought the play-act love-making scene in Act 4 particularly funny. All of these are PL ok! Now you can go back to beating your drum. :wink:

I have my script marked to read for Sir George Truman, but I'm not sure what the Prologue is in Act 2 that I'm supposed to read. Can you give me a clue? Probably obvious, but I'm missing it.

The Prologue is actually at the very beginning of the play, before Act 1. It is spoken by Sir George, but he doesn't appear in Act 1, so I figured it would be easiest to just stick it at the beginning of of Act 2.

Ah, I see. And a clever rhyme it is.
Coming soon. :)
