T525 – Speech for Stage
Prerequisite: THTR T325 or consent of the instructor.
This course is a review and strengthening of voice work, and a
thorough investigation of vowels and consonants in the context of
the actor’s goal of clarity in articulation. Sound and movement
work is included along side exercises to limber the lips and
tongue. More extensive work is done on text that is vocally
demanding to increase the actor’s agility in handling language. In
tutorial individual speech and vocal problems are addressed. The
emphasis is on the whole actor and ways of approaching text in
rehearsal dealing with the issues of voice, speech, and movement in
an integrated manner.
