Don't even bother coming to the show it'll be a waste of your money it'll be a major fucking disaster
  • Theater kids the week of the show:It's coming along really great! This show is so much fun, and we can't wait to finally reveal all of our hard work to everyone! I can't wait to see you there I'm sure you're gonna love it :)

Theatre Tips: Line Memorization

Memorizing lines can be the bane of your existence as an actor/actress. Here are a couple of tips to help you memorize them as quick as lightning.

  1. Try and read your script at least once every day. If you can’t sit to read the whole script, just read the scenes you’re in. Repetition is key, but make sure you memorize straight out of the book; practice makes permanent, not perfect.
  2. Write down long lines. When you’re sitting in class, or at rehearsal, start to write down your lines as best as you can from memory. Then, compare them to the script to see how well you know them. This works best with monologues, but can work with dialogue, too.
  3. Use the rehearsal schedule. If you know you’re blocking Act II Scene 3 on Thursday, make sure you’ve memorized your lines in Act II Scene 3 by Wednesday. Also, always remember; once you’ve blocked a scene, you should be off-book the next time you do it.
  4. Highlight your lines in purple. No, seriously. Since purple is a darker color and a bit harder to read through, your brain will focus on the words more, making you memorize faster. Use a purple highlighter, though, not a marker; you still want to be able to read it.
  5. Don’t just memorize your own lines. Make sure you know the whole scene inside and out, so you know when to come in, and are able to improv or pick up a line if someone drops something.
  6. Run, run, run! Run lines as often as possible. Preferably, with your scene partner. However, you can use anyone available.
