What did you do to get into character for your part?

My personal experience in "25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" really was an unforgettable one… To train for my part, I watched YouTube videos of the characters and the different numbers, because I have learned that a script can only tell a person so much about how to act. The main goal of mine was to get my character’s voice down pat first so that I could work around that. I feel that a voice really can make or break a character, so unless I got the certain dialect for William Barfee down to a science, I would have ended up getting used to singing the songs and acting in my normal voice, then I would have had to transition over to saying the lines again but with the Barfee voice. By the end of the show, I was finally able to snap into the voice whenever I pleased.
