Transcript of Voice in Drama

in Acting
The use of your Voice
When using your
voice in
Drama
you need to
consider the
following:

"Let me have it Sam"
Individually think about
this line
Does your voice sounds appropriate
- perhaps harsh or soft, angry or
happy?

Is it suitable for the character
you're playing?
TONE
Have you got the loudness or quietness
of your lines right?


Can everyone in the audience hear you?
VOLUME
Does your character speak with a high
or low pitched voice? If you were
playing a hanging judge, would a
squeaky voice sound right?
PITCH
What would this person say?
PACE
How quickly you say your lines
Too fast, and the audience won't keep
up, too slow and they might get bored.

Can you alter the pace according to
what's happening in the drama?
CLARITY
Practice speaking very, very clearly?
It's crucial!
