| | Misfits Audio- THE LONE RANGER rides again!
Here are the particulars. Please send the files as mp3, 44.1k, 192bps. LR-yourname-character.mp3 to jsmagata at gmail dot com
Much like the OTR days, we would like to get a "stable" of 6 or 7 people who can do different voices for this series of 5 episodes, so as to give them a variety of challenges and roles. Sorry, but there is only one female role so far. We would want the successful candidates to record all their roles at once, or as close a time period as possible, so as to allow our director/producer to get at them right away. Please choose whatever lines you want to do and try different takes and voices. Have a conversation with yourself! Some non-generic characters have been listed with a specific quality to convey.
Three people will have roles in all the episodes- the LR, Tonto and the announcer. (Tonto needs to have broken english, unfortunately a stereotypical 30's 40's American Indian style. Let's make it our own).
HAVE FUN. Auditions due High Noon Sunday March 28th.
The Lone Ranger!
ANNOUNCER: (like an announcer) The Lone Ranger is perhaps the most attractive figure ever to come out of the West. Many are the stories that are told by the lights of the Western campfire concerning this romantic figure. Some thought he was on the side of the outlaw, but many knew that he was a lone rider, dealing out justice to the law abiding citizenry. None knew where he came from and none knew where he went.
(narration) Old Jeb Langworth lived alone in his small shack just outside the wide open community of Red Rock. One evening as he was watching the coffee boil and the bacon sizzle in the pan, and thinking of how snug his cabin was, with the storm raging outside, there came a knock on the door.
RANGER: A good horse is a man's best friend. He won't frame him the way a human friend will, Cal. You ought to have some of the qualities of a horse
Remember what I have said Sheriff ... release Jeb Langworth because his innocence can be proved and the guilty party FOUND if you force me to do it. That's all...
You see, it takes BRAINS to out guess guns! I was so sure that you'd take advantage of me, when I was unarmed and so sure of your boasting nature, that I left a little note for the Sheriff to be by that window tonight if he wanted to hear the confession of the REAL MURDERER!
(And of course,) Hi Yo Silver! AWAY!
TONTO: There plenty of excitement in town Kemosabe! Crooks try rob bank last night
TONTO: Umm. Them the fellers try to rob bank.
RANGER: Are you SURE, Tonto?
TONTO: (yes) UMM . . . Watchman get a good look at crooks in lantern light. And me hear description him give.
RANGER: Were they captured?
TONTO: No . . . No, they get away . . .
RANGER: Possibly heading west . . .
TONTO: That right.
RANGER: Leave the provisions you've bought in your saddle bags, and start after those two.
TONTO: While me in town, Kemosabe, me follow crook's tracks . . Me show you where we pick up trail outside town. One feller ride horse with worn shoe.
TONTO: Easy, Scout . . .
RANGER: (OFF MIKE) Come on Silver!!
TONTO: (OFF MIKE) On, Scout!!
JEB: (old crusty type guy)
Yep, that's me: Jeb Langworth. Deppity Sheriff is my callin'.
Sherrif’s Name is Obie Cuyler, an' he's as square a man as yew'd find in a long ride. Me an' Cal Steward is his Deppities, and 'tween the three of us, they hain't much goes on that ain't right an' in the law. Yep. I reckon' they hain't a Sheriff in this part o' the country that haint a lookin' fer that Lone Ranger feller.
I don' know what tew think of it, Cal. It taint like Jeb at all. He was allus the most peace lovin' feller I knowed, why I didn't ever know Jeb tuh use vi'lence of any sort.
Think they'll lynch him? Wal, I aint a goin' tuh stand fer no lynchin'. This here is a civilized community an' I'm fer law an' order. The law says that a man's entitled tuh be tried afore a jury, an' that's what Jeb's goin' tuh be.
CAL (smarmy bad guy in disguise)
Purty danged cold-blooded of Jeb, the way he plugged old Higgens, Sheriff.
Yuh cain’t never tell about these silent fellers like him. Gosh, ole Higgens was well liked too.
I'm most afeared tuh let the news get told around about Jeb.
I reckon' the boys here in Red Rock won't wait fer a trial. --
GENERIC BAD GUYS:
TIM: (lost again at the nth poker game) Me? I'm cleaned Cal, I'd give a month's pay fer a run o' luck like yew hed tuh-night.
JOE: An' me tew. I'm washed up.
JERIMY: Yuh shore thet Jeb--he done the killin, Cal?
TIM: I hates tew think thet Jeb'd kill a fren' like Higgens..
JOE: Jeb's a good feller tew, an' I reckon that one that starts any talk er bout lynchin'll hev tuh face ME!
JERIMY: An me.
TIM: An' me too, by Tunket. Wal, I got tew be gittin on.
JERIMY: Wait Tim, I'll go 'long with yew.
ELK: Yeah, when I saw the light in the bank, I told ya we wouldn't have a chance.
BOGUS: How would I know a watchman was on duty inside?
ELK: I'll bet twenty dollars that critter got a good luck at us too.
BOGUS: Aw, shut up, will ya!
ELK: You and your smart ideas!
BOGUS: We're not in jail yet!
ELK: We'll never reach the border if you try any more loco moves!
BOGUS: We need cash, Elk . . . and I think I know where we can get it!
ELK: Well, if you're thinking of tryin' another bank robbery --
BOGUS: I'm thinking of a law shark I know in the town of Muleshoe.
ELK: Where's that?
BOGUS: Beyond the town of Amity.
ELK: Amity's ahead of us.
BOGUS: Muleshoe's west of it. It's a rich cattle town.
HECTOR (Crooked lawyer)
HECTOR: Well, part of it. The rest is to go to John's son, Pete. Now, the trouble is, that Pete and his mother were with a wagon-train ambushed by redskins fifteen years ago. Pete's mother was found dead, and so were the rest of the travelers.
His body was never found. John Perry died believing his son is still alive. Now, Clem Perry is downright anxious to find the boy. Clem's unmarried and hopes that his nephew will carry on the Cloverleaf after he's gone.
PETE (18-year old orphan, livery stable hand)
PETE: Well . . . I'd like livin' on a ranch first-rate, but I . . . well, I don't want to go there unless Mr. Perry knows the truth.PETE: I've eaten as much turkey as I can hold, Elk.PETE: Well, after Mr. Moses left, I found out I really AM Pete Perry.
CLEM (ranch owner. Older. Nice guy)
CLEM:Pete was born in this house seventeen years ago. When he was three, he and his mother started east to visit her folks.
The wagon train was ambushed! But I never believed that my Pete was killed. And now that I've seen the birthmark on Pete's arm, I know he's my nephew.
When he was three days old, his dad changed the brand of this spread from the JP to the Cloverleaf. It's been that way ever since. And the brand's just like the mark on Pete's arm. His dad had it done that way...Er, roll up your sleeve, Pete, and show 'em the mark.
BARKEEP (nice guy)
BARKEEP: Hey, here's another item about the sheriff. It says, "Everett Barnes has obtained a confession from one of gang who bushwhacked his brother.."
and key in his home until he can turn it over to the Federal officers." What do ya think of that?
If he nails the murdering skunk that shot Sherriff Jim - I'm for him.
BANKER THOMAS (crooked)
BANKER THOMAS: What's going on out here, Miss Mason? You know I don't approve of employee's having visitors during banking hours.
Didn't I see a young boy standing by your desk a few moments ago?
Everett Barnes?. Let me see that paper.
Well.You're quite right Judy. This is a very interesting news article. Well, I believe I'll go out for lunch now. I'll be back shortly.
JUDY: No, you're not (a coward). And the best way to prove it is by going right into the Longhorn Cafe and arresting Monk Savage.
JUDY: And you'll put it over. I'll wait for you over at the bank. Mr. Thomas wants me to help him work on the books tonight. Remember Everett, I'll be waiting for you.
U.S. MARSHAL (only line)
MARSHAL: I certainly am. Thanks to you and what I've just heard, I'm arresting three men for murder.
