Workshop 5: Vocal Technique

  • The Annex 523 South Street London, ON, N6B 1C4 Canada (map)

Sunday, February 17 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm OR
Tuesday, February 19 from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join local theatre artist Patrick Avery Kenny (Left Behind; RCR Museum, Dogfight; Allswell Productions, The School for Scandal; Stratford Festival) for a workshop where we’ll look at vocal technique for theatre performance. Learn about the relationship between the body and the voice, how your physical state can impact your vocal ability, and where in your body sound is coming from. We’ll look at vocal techniques for differently-sized performance spaces, and you’ll leave with an arsenal of vocal warm-ups, and projection and diction exercises to use in all of your future theatrical endeavors.

Please bring water, and wear comfortable clothing as well as stable, supportive shoes.

 This New Stage Workshop Series is held at the London Community Players Annex Space at 523 South St. Each workshop begins promptly at its indicated start time. The building will be open a minimum of 30 minutes beforehand. Please take weather into account, and arrive with enough time to get settled before the beginning of the workshop itself.

You may wish to bring a pen and notebook, water, and a sweater if you're prone to getting chilly.
