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.
