About Tara

I’m Tara Travis, a woman of many voices. As a career theatre artist for 20+ years (multiple character specialist and puppeteer) I have been developing a wealth of characters and vocal sensibilities and I’m here for you, ready to bring your story to life.

Services

What I Offer

Voice Artist

I bring it all! What vocal style are you looking for? Warm, kind and clear, smart and authoritative, articulate and cheery, sarcastic and cheeky, natural, easy, caring, genuine, relatable “in the room”, down to earth with a little vocal fry…? And any character you can think of…all available in myriad dialects, age ranges and pitches.

Actor

I’m also a Theatre (and occasionally Commercial, TV and Film) actor, so if you’re looking for a versatile comedic Amazon to be in your next project in the Greater Vancouver Region, I’m all about that, too. 

Writer

If you’re enjoying my cheeky writing style, I’ve been known to write original plays and puppet shows, marketing copy, newsletters, demo scripts, and offer dramaturgical services.

Puppeteer

Hand and rod, shadow, inanimate object puppetry: I also wiggle dollies for stage and screen. Do you need a puppeteer? Yup, you got it. 

Creative Human

I love to create things/experiences/performance art through a variety of styles and media. Wanna make something? Let’s chat…  Why not?

Tara was absolutely professional, thoughtful, and all-around wonderful to work with. She delivered a beautiful file with excellent sound quality. I’m extremely happy with her work. I highly recommend this talented, versatile voice artist!

CG Creative Communications

Tara is a local treasure – her characterizations are specific and all-encompassing. Each role she plays has a different voice, facial expression and physicality, and she switches between them with a swift mastery that has to be seen to be believed.

Lillian Jasper, Two Cents & Two Pence

Tara was a total professional. She provided top quality files, timed the audio perfectly to our video and was wonderful about taking direction. Her ability to provide multiple characters is an asset to any creative team and her undeniable talent is hard to ignore. We had no edits or revisions, she knocked it out of the park and made us look good! We look forward to collaborating with her again in the future!

Media Painters Inc

Travis puts on a dazzling display of comedy acting. See it for the history lesson. See it for the ingenious comic scenario. Or see it for the master class Travis delivers in solo performing – Til Death is fringe at the top of its game.

Stephen Hunt, Calgary Herald.

With a sparse set Travis is able to sketch out absorbing portraits and dialogue. In one breath she leaps from emotional vulnerability to flawless comic timing.
