We Educate and Entertain
Voice-over is one of the most specialized, competitive, and lucrative fields an actor can break into. It requires skill with character voices (both "straight" and "cartoon"); dialects like British (Irish, Scottish, Cockney), American regional (New York, Southern) and foreign language accents (French, German, Russian, Spanish etc.); and skill in "acting with an accent." A voice-over artist's "gigs" include:
The successful voice-over artist has a host of character voices and dialects in his or her repertoire. This is where The Theatre Lab can help, not only with the dialects and accents, but with all apects of performance.
OTHER ENGLISH LANGUAGE DIALECTS
Theresa Flais, a teacher of accents and dialects, and dialect coach for theatre, has helped actors for more than 15 years to improve their "acting with an accent." Using clear demonstration and simple exercises, no matter what their level of training, performers quickly become proficient in the English dialects, foreign language accents, and character voices they need in films, theatre, TV, radio, voice-over, ventriloquism, and stand-up comedy.
