French Text for Alice and Katherine

If you would prefer to memorize the passage you may do so, but it is not required. You are allowed to read from the text. Pronunciation will be most important.

Suzanne et Joseph étaient nés dans les deux premières années de leur arrivée à la colonie. Après la naissance de Suzanne, la mère abandonna l’enseignement d’état. Son mari avait été nommé directeur d’une école indigène et, disaient-elle, ils avaient vécu très largement malgré la charge de leurs enfants.

If there are any questions concerning other aspects of the audition or the production, you may contact Mr. Brasher at 582-7621, or nbrasher@liberty.edu.
