Finished my last bit and emailed it to her Imperial Majesty.  The three pages of script turned into seven comic pages.  Next year people, please step forward and do pages it certainly is not fair that some talentless cretin hogs the middle of the script and will force the readership down into negative digits with seven tiresome pages of truly horrid art.

You're gonna wish you'd shang-haied your six year old nephew into scribbling something in crayon or gotten your mom to draw those marvelous stick figures of hers that populate her doodle pad when she talks on the phone to cousin Eleanor for hours on end.

Hello One And All!
Three hours remain to get your votes in. If you can't decide by voice, then decide by face.
(I'm only kidding; decide by voice.)

Tomorrow the winning contenders will be contacted to see if they're still committed to doing their roles. If any contenders reading this know now that they can't record a role, please save some time and just let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

As far as pages, there's a slight delay with page one, and there are a few artists that still need some more time. But more than half of the pages have been received and They Are MAGNIFICENT!!

and then . . . there's this:

CAPTAIN!   Hey!  Hey!  Hey!   Your description is diametrically opposed to the pages I received.  Or are you saying The Czarina has No Taste.
 
Is that what you're saying? -_-
 
And the second bit made me laugh – that's a pretty good representation of what I do do.  :D

I thank your majesty and I most humbly defer to your imperial highness's opinion regarding my work.
And who is that handsome Frenchman on that page of faces?

I dunno, but that's a pretty rockin' red helmet. Is that like a motorcycle helmet or something?

The notification process has begun. I've sent out emails to contenders who actually won two roles to see which they want, and to make sure they'll still send in a full role's recording pretty quickly. I need to hear back before rolling ahead.

In other frustrating news - page 1 has been yet another victim of a mis-selected key of the keyboard - but hopefully the delay won' t be too long.
And if that weren't enough, I just about wore myself out trying to scoop out some granite-hard ice cream. In 90°temps (WTH! It's APRIL!), ice cream is the only reasonable response.

On the sunnier side, I've either heard or (better) ceived from all artists now, except for one - so YAY!!

so why not post the winners of the rolls who we ARE sure of and label the rest as “to be confirmed” as they're well…confirmed?

So I guess we're not guessing voices this year?  (well - most are pretty familiar).
 
Right now there are two roles unfilled and I'm waiting for confirmation from one person before I can proceed.
 
You - One Person!  Please read your emails and PQs.

Well, it took less than a week, but all of the contenders should know the status of the roles – if they've checked their email in the last 5 mins.
 
So, ducks, do we wanna guess?  Or do you Just Want To Know.  Post here before Monday - majority decision rules.
And the comic is updating with some very colorful stuff.  check it out  :)

I don't really have any guesses (besides my own, which I know!)
…so I'll vote to “know”! :-)

I'm SO close to finishing my pages! I'm rather happy now that I only got one instead of two! I should be finished tonight or tomorrow at the latest. Its awesome to see the first comic pages being uploaded already!
Also, I'm so not good at guessing voices, I cant even remember what the voices sounded like last year 0_o Can't wait to see who won though.

@theorah - great news!  looking forward to seeing what you have.  :-)
 
All righty then - the posting majority wants to know, so here now are the winners of the voice try-outs, chosen by popular vote (the Czarina did not use her voting power of five):

Seriously, all the voice acting was splendid - although I think the recording quality of some may have been a deficit.   And although I'm delighted to see the return of four voice talents from last year's play,  I'm really happy to see six new talents win roles from last year.
 
Many sincere thanks to all who sent in recordings!  Hope you'll all give a listen when the play is finished.  In the mean time, check out the DD 2012 Radio Play Comic.

Did the other talents make as many flubs as I have? Someone could edit together a blooper reel, and play it after the show. It could be funny.

You have long stretches of voice over so there's lots to flub.  I struggled very hard to mess up repeating a single word over and over again. :D

my flubs were mostly me being too close to the mic when i would scream a line in Peter Lorre Angry/Insane mode…wish i wouldn've filmed myself doing the recording, though- my contortions and facials as I tried to get into the part may have provided a couple chuckles for someone…
