Intro to Stage Dialects at BCT
Many stage roles, at all levels of production - whether student, community, or professional - require dialects. An actor who auditions for these roles should have an idea how to prepare for and handle these dialect requirements. This class will provide you with the basic tools you need to create consistent, believable, quality stage dialects. We will use the same time-tested techniques as professionals and professional training programs throughout the world.

For those who plan to audition for BCT's Spring production of
"Enchanted April," this is a great way to start preparing, as all the roles require some form of dialect. 

Class Description:
What will be covered:Introduction to the phonetic alphabet, the universal writing system used in many disciplines; types of vocal sounds and how they are produced; how to use sound substitutions to create a dialect, and applying them to readings and monologues.

Dialects we will touch on:
"General" or "Standard American Speech" - i.e., without regionalisms
"Standard" or "Upper" British*
*Both needed in "Enchanted April"
Students will vote on a third dialect to study, or will each choose their own.

4 class sessions, 3 hours per session:
Monday, Jan. 20th from 2:00-5:00pm (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day)
Thursday, Jan. 23 from 6:00-9:00pm
Thursday, Jan. 30 from 6:00-9:00pm
Thursday, Feb. 6  from 6:00-9:00pm

Will be held at Seasons Restaurant, 427 Main St., Downtown Bangor (the Grange is temporarily closed for the winter).
