because I think TSR will get me my well deserved oscar
Seriously though, if anyone's got some good advice I'll be thankful. I do plays and stuff quite often, but I'm usually playing over-the-top, stereotypical characters with strong characteristics and such. Now I'm playing a character who is very close to my real self...so I don't know how to show I'm still acting, but being realistic.
I can show what emotion my character is feeling, I can use gestures and such - but I don't know how to change my voice. I'm not meant to have an accent or anything, but I need some way of getting across to my audience that I'm not playing myself subtly. Does anyone have any tips and shiddazle to help me? I'm putting a slight stutter on occasionally (when my character is nervous) but I can't do that throughout the play. I need something which is different to the way I normally speak to sustain throughout the performance.
arggghhhh sorry if that made no sense but I need help and I don't know where to get it!
info on my character: geeky sort of girl, usually talking to her friend so she's not going to be shy throughout most of the play, but I imagine if she was talking to other people, she'd be very timid.
