Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
My impersonations include "oldies" such as Mae West, Marlena Dietrich and Eva Gabor. More current impressions include "Karen" from "Will and Grace" and Fran Drescher from "The Nanny." I perform cartoon voices, including "Natashia" from "Rocky and Bullwinkle," Daffy Duck and Marvin Martian. Dialects include English, both cultured and Cockney, Irish, middle-eastern Indian, Texan and other southern such as West Virginian and Kentuckian or a "Southern Belle." I believe that I can perform almost any female impression, cartoon character or dialect if given a couple of days to listen to it and work on it.
My Voice Experience
While a student at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio,I voiced several characters in a cartoon series about children who lived on a magical island.
I performed in summer stock in New Jersey and Ohio. In Ohio I performed at Baldwin-Wallace College's "Berea Summer Theatre" and at Pepper Pike's "Limited in Company" Theatre. I also performed in a number of workshops in NYC. Most of the parts I did required my to use a specific type of voice or dialect. For example, in summer stock, I played the snobbish "upper crust" character "Gloria Upson" in the musical "Mame." I have played the stereotypical ditsy blonde with a high-pitched Brooklyneese voice.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. As part of my training there, I spent two years studying "Standard American Speech." At Cuyahoga Community College,in Cleveland, Ohio, I studied broadcast journalism from the late Sydney Andorn (local radio icon.)I am a classically trained singer with a "legitimate" voice that lends itself to Broadway show tunes.
