Voice acting subject of three-day workshop

UWindsor drama alumna Elley-Ray Hennessy (BFA 1981) will share her expertise in voice acting in a three-day workshop, October 14 to 16.

“The Magic of Voice” will feature exercises to create characters and expand vocal range, techniques to bring a script to life, tips to success in auditioning and the basics of the business, and more.

Hennessy, recipient of an honorary doctorate from the University in 2015, is one of the busiest voice-over artists in North America, appearing in literally thousands of television and radio commercials, animated series and feature films. Her credits include childhood favourites like the Canadian-produced series Franklin, Babar, and the Berenstain Bears.

The workshop is open to faculty, staff, and students in all programs. The cost $250 fee includes the workshop, lunch and snacks for the three days. To register, contact Maureen Haggith in the School of Dramatic Art at mhaggith@uwindsor.ca or 519-253-3000, ext. 2804.
