Access accents : Geordie (Newcastle)
Part of the Performance Books series
This work is endorsed by Julie Walters, Bill Nighy, Helen Mirren, Kelly Riley, Stephen Frears, Michael Sheen, and Michael Attenborough.
An essential tool for actors needing to develop an accent at a moments notice.
Top voice coach, Penny Dyer (voice coach to Nicole Kidman, Reece Witherspoon etc) and Gwyneth Strong ("Cassandra", "Only Fools and Horses") present an hour long voice coaching session on CD.
The audio contains examples of the accent from a locally born and bred person; a short history of the accent/dialect; a voice coaching lesson between an actor and Penny Dyer who will explain the phonetics, rhythm etc., with numerous examples to listen to and then try; a short extract from a play.
A small booklet will include some phonetic notes, transcripts of the accent examples, the play example, the background on the accent and an Introduction.
This is an invaluable resource for every actor's library.
