Kimberly Mohne Hill

What do coal-mining painters from Newcastle in England, call-center employees in Chennai, India and free-women of color in 1840’s New Orleans have in common? Nothing, except very exotic and challenging dialects! Oh, well, yeah, they also have KIMBERLY MOHNE HILL taking apart their accents and teaching them to the actors playing those roles. With over 25 years of experience coaching and teaching actors in the Bay Area and beyond, Kimberly has worked at every major Bay Area regional theater and almost all of the smaller companies, too. She has done countless hours of private coaching and teaches full-time as an Associate Professor in the Department of Theatre & Dance at Santa Clara University. Kimberly received her MFA in Acting from the prestigious American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, CA where she subsequently apprenticed with master dialectician, Deborah Sussel. The dialects she has coached in the past include: British, Cockney/MLE, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Irish, Northern Irish, German, Belgian, Scandinavian, French, Italian, Russian, East Asian/Indian, Spanish, Latin, New York, Boston, Georgia, New Orleans, Chicago, Texas, and Pacific Northwest, among others. Maybe one of these will be taught in YOUR workshop!
