For our favorite March holiday, WRP thought it only fitting to teach you the coolest St. Paddy’s party trick! Everyone has an accent, and using different ones from all over the world can be a big part of our theatrical endeavors. Come and learn how to discover your own accent as well as how to successfully deliver an Irish brogue! This workshop includes placement, vowel, and consonant changes, and the signature sing-song lilt!

All students are encouraged to wear green!

Our instructor, Shley Snider, has a Master of Fine Arts in Performance from the University of Southern Mississippi (summa cum laude), a Master of Liberal Studies in Museum Theatre from Fort Hays State University (cum laude), and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Theatre, also from Fort Hays (magna cum laude). She is an Adjunct Instructor in Theatre Arts at Ashland University. A part of the Ohio theatre scene for just over a year, Shley has already been spotted in productions with Ensemble Theatre, Ohio Shakespeare Festival, Cleveland Shakespeare Festival, French Creek Theatre, Akron Symphony Orchestra, The Illusion Factory, and Players Guild, as well as various professional mystery theatres. (But she can’t tell us which ones- it’s a mystery!) A specialist in all things “voice,” Shley holds Practitioner Status with The Lessac Kinesensic Training and Research Institute, works as a dialect and voiceover coach, and even does some voice over herself. Her real claim to vocal fame, though, has been as a comedy rapper, performing in such venues as the PIT NYC, Lyric Theatre Miami, and the Impractical Jokers Cruise.
