Post Having trouble with Anna
So, I'm playing Anna, and I'm doing my best with the part, but I'm getting a lot of "The King is really amazing!! OH, and you're good too!" kind of things. I'm not sure what else to do with the part, so much of it is setting the king up for HIS funny lines. All of mine are pretty straightforward.
Also, I'm having trouble with the "Ladies, ladies, come back! Oh dear, oh Edward, this is just dreadful!" line. I can't make it sound right, it's always really awkward. HELP Please!! and SOON! We've already opened...

When you're talking to the Wives, try to sound panicked but be careful not to make it seem like you're yelling at them. When you're talking to Ramsey, be disapointed and regretful but not so much like you're whining or crying.
