  • Audition Preparation for a Dialect Play
  • Script Analysis for a Dialect Play
  • Pre-Rehearsal Research
  • Adapting the Dialect for the Stage
  • The rehearsal process: Polishing the Dialect

"I had planned sometime in the future to write a book dealing with the actor's complete preparation for and execution of a dialect role as well as professional issues confronted by production dialect coaches. Having read Ginny Kopf's handbook, I am crossing that project off of my 'to do' list. Ginny has already done it better than I would have."
