Voice and Speech

“I enjoyed every minute of the class. I felt very safe in the environment, which helped me be myself, learn and work towards being a better actress.”

This course guides teenagers through all aspects of scripted work, including how to analyze and interpret text, connect with other actors, make strong physical and vocal choices, develop fully realized characters, and make the most of rehearsal time. For students in grades 7–12.
