Post subject:  Accents

If you are trying to work on dialects for this show, there are a few very good sources.

You can listen to native speakers at the International Dialects of English Archive:

If you're looking for something that actually teaches the accent, check out --There you'll find downloads that teach you how to speak with the accent and there are recordings of natives included.

You can also order dialect CDs from which will include instruction and examples.

(Full disclosure: I'm a dialect coach and contributor to both IDEA and AccentHelp.)

Usually it is very hard to audition properly for a show that requires a dialect without actually doing the dialect. Being able to do the accent will always put you a step above anyone who is not able to pull it off. These sources should serve you well for both auditions and in production.

Good luck!
