Kimily Conkle

Join professional Dialect Coach Kimily Conkle on an informative and light-hearted journey as we explore the Scottish dialect, one of the most requested dialects for actors. On stage or screen, dialects are another level of storytelling, and modern audiences expect authenticity with intelligibility. This workshop is designed to give you specific tools to master the signature sounds and prosody of the dialect. Scottish dialects might used in shows such as Brigadoon, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Macbeth, The 39 Steps, Spamalot, Silent Sky, and Murder on the Orient Express.
