Nonamplified voice and speech for the stage imposes different production requirements than during conversational speech. Tony Church, noted Shakespearean actor and Dean of the National Theatre Conservatory, and Renee Skravanos Root, operatic and recital artist and singing teacher, will demonstrate voice and speech production for the stage relative to contrasts of communication intent and requirements for audibility and intelligibility. Open discussion and research connections will accompany the demonstrations.
