The Actor’s Voice with Alex Wright
Learn how to distinguish, develop, and apply the physiological processes of voice production as it relates to breath, vocal support, and resonance, while also beginning to analyze and modify personal vocal strengths and weaknesses. Through monthly sessions students will begin to build upon concepts, creating a consistent voice “work-out” to stay tuned into physical awareness, healthy vocal production, vocal freedom, and vocal power.
Alexandra Wright has a BA from the University of Southern California (Recipient of Doolittle Award: Outstanding Female Performer of graduating class) and an MFA from ART/MXAT at Harvard University. Acting has taken her to Paris, London, Scotland, and Moscow and has given her the opportunity to work with exceptional artists, such as Neil Patrick Harris, Neil Gaiman, Scott Zigler, and Kevin Bright. As a coach, Alexandra has consulted with actors, lawyers, medical professionals, public speakers, and CEOs on helping them build their brand and find their specific and unique voices. Her specialty lies in understanding how upbringing, background, gender, race, sexuality, and trauma shape performance as it relates to body language, communication skills, voice, and presence.
Her many stage roles include Helena in the L.A. Philharmonic’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Walt Disney Concert Hall; Rosalind in As You Like It (American Repertory Theatre); Lady Macbeth in Macbeth (Odyssey Theatre); Bec in the Los Angeles premiere of 4000 Miles (SMP); Chick in Crimes of the Heart (International City Theatre, Long Beach); Lady Percy in Henry IV, Part I (Shakespeare Orange County); and Edmund in King Lear (Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum). Wright also has more than 50 television, film and commercial credits under her belt, including Solve, Chicago PD, Grace and Frankie, and This is Us.
