This thesis is an examination of both the vocal and physical aspects of training involved in the education of actors
Beginning with a comparison of techniques and principals applied in the styles of vocal specialists: Edith Skinner, Cicely Barry, and Kristin Linklater. I then explore various forms of "body use" technique's used in an acting student's learning process, such as: Alexander Technique, Laban, Neutral Mask work, T'ai Chi, and Modern Dance. Finally, this text unifies the vocal and physical training, incorporating it into a single class. By this, it is hoped to inform the student how he/she may achieve an integrated and healthy working instrument which may illuminate his/her career and craft
