A useful Welshman to know in these cases is Dai-version. Just start talking about rugby and you'll be fine.

Ask any choir-singer or actor and they'll tell you about projection, it's chapter one in the technique hand-book "How to be heard at the back of the hall."

Yes, it is amazing what real actors can do in that respect.
Not the same, but a good story: Laurence Olivier is supposed to have said to an American Method actor who was trying to really "get into" his part: "try acting, dear boy". :D

RaR Auditions: if anyone knows anyone who went, or knows someone who knows someone... (I'll bet there's a special Welsh verb for that), I'd love to hear the clec.
