Vocal Tools for Actors

Ages 11 and up. This handout provides a fun and powerful way for your students to add depth, variety, and expression to their line delivery.

Sometimes it can be challenging to introduce expression to a text. Sometimes students are so focused on getting the lines out that they are delivered in a flat, uninspired way. Use this handout to help your students explore inflection, emphasis, pacing and more!

Students will learn the symbols for each of the five P’s (pace, punch, pitch, pause, power). They will apply them to famous lines from movies, and to a script from War of the Worlds. Lines and the script are included in this tutorial!
