Calendar Girls @ Georgia Ensemble Theatre

Today is brought to you by “Ty Learns a British Accent!” I’ll be hitting the stage in a few weeks for Georgia Ensemble Theatre’s production of “Calendar Girls”. This show is one of the funniest British comedies I have read. I will admit, I have not read very many, but it still had me on floor laugh when I was reading through the script. If you have watched the movie, then you will not be disappointed at all! In this production I play the character of Liam; a young producer/director for a commercial company in Britain. Let’s just say, I am in love with the character because it is one of the few times I get to be an ass on stage!

This show will provide a unique challenge for me because I have never been asked to pull off an accent. During my years on stage, it has never come up that I need to learn one, but considering this show is a British comedy… I have no choice in the matter so I must prepare myself to learn in 3 weeks a beautiful British accent to woo all the ladies and gentlemen that come across my path.

For more information on the show, visit www.get.org or follow the theatre on Twitter, Instagram, and like them on Facebook.
