Accents workshops

Accents workshops

This one day intensive course is aimed at actors looking to further their training and enhance their knowledge of accents. We will look particularly at RP and Standard American. Working from an RP template, actors will learn how to profile accents covering Northern Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Newcastle. 

The Accent Workshops are in both ALRA's venues at different times, but the course content are identical.
