the accent used isn't really southern, not a drawl. The dialogue is written is such a was as to give you certain ways to say certain words.
Are you required to use an accent to audition?

oh is it thats a relief then, its my first time doing this show so ive never seen the script!! They haven't stated that you have to use an accent for the audition but it usually helps! shows you can do it that way i suppose no good giving the part to someone who can't i suppose! thanks for the help
