Oh, how about I read for Jim Cargan, the crooked mayor of Reuton?
Nothin' like being a crooked politician these days. :lol:
Of course! Now our cast is full!

Oh no, the mayor got claimed just a few hours before you! I'm sorry, but now the cast is full. Perhaps next time?

Hello Kelly,
Notes for Stage Directions, Act 2:
17:51 change "hand" to "arm" in "Grabs Max's arm and throws it back."
19:24 Add "L." in "...looking up at room L., turns...
30:30 change "unlocks" to "locks" in "Cargan as the latter locks the door."
44:11 change "unlocks" to "locks" in "Chief locks door and comes down stage to Mary."
48:50 change "enters" to "exits" in "...and closes it as Cop exits."

Great job with two very long sections!
Thanks,
Lora
Here, at last, are the corrected files for the Stage Directions:

Hope I managed not to get all those locked/unlocked combinations as tangled as I did the first time!!

Hello Alan,
For Peters, Act 1--between :30 and :34 insert "What?" before the phrase "How'd you people get in here?"

Thanks,
Lora

Hi Jenn--
What a perfect laugh for Myra--great job! Act 1 is PL Okay; for Act 2 at 1:06, please smooth out the stumble on the word "you" in the phrase "He was to meet you here..."

Thank you,
Lora
