Local actress and dialect coach Lisa Rowe-Beddoe, who’s also Wheelock Family Theatre’s assistant director of education, taught kids to move like animals during “Exploring Character Through Music and Movement,” a vacation-week class put on by Wheelock and the Boston Lyric Opera. At the front of the class was the room’s designated seal, 10-year-old Myasia Aitoro. Rowe-Beddoe, who left the UK for Massachusetts in 2002, has signed up to do some dialect coaching for the Zeitgeist Stage Company’s production of “Life of Riley,” which opens in February.
