Dialect Coach - (posted 2/4/14)
My name is Stacy and I am a 2011 graduate of Minnesota State, Mankato. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Theatre and a minor in Film Studies. Since graduating, I have moved back to the Madison area and I have worked with multiple Theatre companies and individuals needing a Dialect Coach for class work, professional performances, or simply for fun.
I am fluent in the IPA and am trained in Standard British, Cockney, Italian, Irish, Scottish, Russian, French, German, Standard Southern, and Standard Brooklyn. Most recently, I was hired to teach Standard and Yorkshire British for a production of The Secret Garden, multiple dialects in Sweeney Todd, and multiple dialects within Bower City Theatre's production of Jekyll & Hyde (which can be found on YouTube). I am very proud of all of these productions and the hard work the cast put into their craft.
My rates for private dialect lessons are currently $25 for an hour of one on one coaching, for as many sessions as your dialect needs require. Rates for a full production are negotiable based on the size of the production and the travel time required. Feel free to contact me with questions.
For references or if you are in need of a dialect coach for your production etc, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
