Acting in Accent: American Southern

This workshop will be held online via Zoom Conferencing: 


Presented by: Theresa McElwee

In this accent workshop for actors, you will learn the physical and vocal foundation for dialects of the American South. Using material from both contemporary and period plays, we will explore these dialects’ vocal postures, musicality, and areas of resonance. Attention will be paid to variations of Southern dialects based on location, class, time period, race and culture. We will also examine working with Southern dialects in practice through scene and/or monologue work.

No prior dialect experience necessary.
