BECOME YOUR OWN DIALECT COACH!

The accent study guide is a unique resource designed expressly for high school theater productions. Each accent study guide is custom-built for a specific play or musical, and it includes:

  • A brief cultural and geographical background of the accent
  • A breakdown of the accent including major sound changes, pitch-patterns, and other defining characteristics
  • Recordings of WORDS FROM THE SCRIPT, and practice sentences to go along with them
  • Detailed information on how to approach the show's accent from start to finish
  • Rehearsal tools, tips, and exercises
  • Links to authentic resources and other useful information

 

The accent study guide can be used during rehearsal with the entire cast, OR as a self-guided program for the individual actor.

Interested in having me create an Accent Study Guide for your show? Let me know--your school can be the first! (Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.)

To ORDER the accent study guide:

  • I recommend ordering your guide at least one month prior to the start of rehearsals--this gives you and your cast plenty of time to work with the material.
  • If you're requesting a brand new accent study guide (not from the list of shows above), please allow up to two weeks.
  • Rates vary depending on the show--please CONTACT me for more information
