re: Thirteenth Annual Month a' the Chicken (2022)

Hello, Mooters!

This is short notice, but I've written a short theatrical piece about a Rooster and a King, which I think might be fun to perform this Monday evening (August 15) at Ales and Tales. There are only three cast members, besides myself as narrator.

 

Rooster (hobbit burglescout, with a chicken mask, with /rich or /coin_toss)

King (man, with suitable garb)

King's minister (man or woman, with suitable garb, with /slap emote)

 

Here's a link to the draft script, which I'll finish up today. https://docs.google.com/document/d/173O6sAT7PKQnVzxW63e8qObBJ5Y3bumZ/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=112109899196213886538&rtpof=true&sd=true

If you can help, please let me know. Also, if possible I'd like to meet on Sunday for a brief rehearsal, so let me know your availability on Sunday.
