I had a discussion with him off-list because I think we might try it. So he
wears a headset, and leans into the box with the script when he's recording.

Given the size of it, I am now picturing you with the plywood version of
Darth Helmet's headpiece (worn in similar manner).
Muffled shout: "It's dark in here!"

So, um, where does the mic go?

Way late to the party on this, but here's a comment on audio quality and
narration:

Narration sound quality makes a huge difference. One small thing that can
make a video seem cheesy is a narration track that was obviously recorded in
an office, due to the echos.

Like most places, we couldn't even consider building a recording studio, but
we did come up with a fairly simple solution to the problem: a box with one
open end, and lined with sound absorbing material.

Here are some pictures:

The sound absorbing material is simple packing foam I got from the discard
pile in our manufacturing area.

Quick and easy to make, very effective. The one improvement it needs: better
lighting inside.
