"About This Class"

Instructor: PAUL ROGAN

ABOUT THIS CLASS
 
This is an extension of Paul's first accents class ABCD: Accents,
Big Characters and Dialects and will introduce new accents that
weren't covered in that workshop. If you are interested in this class
but have not taken the first version email school@improtheatre.com
to discuss your eligibility.

 
Don't you just love watching an improviser who can do huge funny characters, accents and dialects from all over the world, with no fear and huge joy? This could be you, with this class from voice master Paul Rogan. Maybe you already love voices and characters and want to add some newskills. Come along and have a blast!
 
The focus is on big, fun, silly characters to broaden your range. We'll work with American, British, European and other accents and push through all the barriers you might have to even trying to do voices on stage. Would you like to be the person who can do a bunch of different characters in a show and none of them are remotely the same?
