Like Sean Connery, you too can learn to shout LINDA QUICLEY Staff Writer Sean Connery, on-screen father of the daring hero of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, has a lot to shout about in the newest film in the daring, fast-paced adventure series. Fortunately, he's learned how to shout without further damaging vocal cords "worn out from a lot of years of vocal abuse," said speech pathologist Lillian Glass, who will conduct a seminar in Nashville this weekend. Glass, a Beverly Hills authortherapist who works with many celebrities, sports figures and politicians, said that Connery, although a noted award-winning actor, has had severe vocal problems for many years. After he had surgery, Glass "taught him how to reuse his vocal mechanism. It completely changed how he came across. He now feels he has the ability to project his voice more and sustain his tones longer." It's obvious that entertainers succeed and perhaps fail by the sound of their voices, but it's also true for those in all walks of life, she said. She has recently worked with actor Mickey Rourke in a movie that fo- Playhouse workshop scheduled Registration for the summer teen workshop apprentice program is scheduled for 4 p.m Saturday at Actors' Playhouse, 2318 West End Ave. The first meeting will be the following Saturday. It will meet twice a week through Aug. 20, on days decided by the students' schedules. The program offers training in acting for stage, TV commercials and improvisational comedy. The acting class will include scene study, audition techniques, emotional recall, state of being and video exercises. Commercial acting will teach how to break down the commercial script, methods for audition and performance all on camera. Students will also work as members of tech crews for upcoming productions at Actors' Playhouse, and perform in two productions of their own. Dennis Ewing, artistic director of Actors' Playhouse and its teaching program, Actors Inc., has 1 9 years' teaching experience in Memphis, Los Angeles and Nashville.

Glass, a regular on the Nashville Network's American Magazine, will conduct a seminar, "Talk to Win," to share her methods of speech improvement The seminar, from 9 am-noon Saturday at the Park Suite Hotel, 10 Century Blvd., is $55 per person and offers each participant a personal consultation with Glass "on how you sound and what you need to do to improve your speaking skills." She is also author of a best-selling book and audio tape, both titled Talk to Win, that suggest speech improv-ment techniques that she feels will help increase confidence, overcome shyness and overcome fear of public speaking. What can improving speech do for the average person? "For example, Mary has a high-pitched voice and sounds like a little girl," Glass said. "Nobody treats her seriously.

Glass said simple techniques can make a big difference in speech and, in many cases, in people's lives. "People can see how just a few things can help them if they're dying off at the end of sentences. Opening the jaw and squeezing down and out on stomach muscles can help make them more powerful speakers. Very nasal speech can be eliminated by a simple jaw exercise."
