My Voice Experience

Laura Beth has been using her voice talents as a professional actor for over 15 years. Recent voice over work recorded in her home studio has included radio/internet radio spots, corporate narrations, and character work.

She could also be heard (and seen) as Emily Osborn in Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark on Broadway. In addition to her onstage performance, Laura Beth also provided many of the voice overs for the show, both live and recorded. Her voice characters included:

-Mother in Distress

-Marbles, a comic 1940s film-noir-esque secretary

-an automated voice mail system

-a sour, selfie-taking, 20-something actress

Laura Beth can also be heard on the original soundtrack, as both a voice actor and actor/singer.

Additional Skills

During my 15 years as an actor, I have had many opportunities to gain life experience outside my field, all of which I believe have influences on my voice career. These include:

-Performing in regional theatres across the country, living in each location for 2-3 months on average. I've lived and worked from Sarasota, FL to San Francisco, CA and many, many places in between.

-Working a huge variety of "survival jobs" throughout the years. These range from the usual, like office temp and waitress, to the unusual, like human billboard and NYC tour guide.

-By virtue of the previous two items, I've also had the opportunity to get to know many, many, many different types of people, from all walks of life. I consider all of them as part of my palette when creating voice characters.

-Raising a vivacious two and a half year old with my husband, which also makes me a consumer on many levels in today's economy.
