"By innocence I swear!": The Ladies Perform

Twelfth Night Act III Scene1

Viola/Cesario: Eleanor
Olivia: Julia

This is cut down a bit, both so as not to run too long for tomorrow's homeschool speech meet, and for the comprehension of the young actors. This is a fun scene for Olivia especially, because she's so changeable, but Viola has several different shifts as well, and we tried to capture those.

I was hard put to make sense of Olivia's "Do not extort thy reasons from this clause" speech in order to interpret it for the girls, but we just decided in the end that Olivia just wasn't making a lot of sense there anyway.

Bravo! Encore! Second generation performers coming along nicely. They'll have all the major roles.
