Ages 10 and up
Using scenes from the classic Broadway musical My Fair Lady , this master class/workshop will give students an in-depth overview of the process professional actors use to acquire a dialect. It will also demonstrate the ways to incorporate that dialect into a character and into the action of a play, film or media project. In the process, students will receive a working knowledge of Standard British & Cockney, two of the dialects most often requested of American actors in their work. The instructor will offer individual coaching to each student during the workshop.
