It can often seem difficult or intimidating to be handed a script and told to learn your lines. Whether you’re learning lines for a school play, an Amateur Dramatic Production, or for a professional stage job, you can make sure you memorize your lines quickly and effectively by understanding what you’re saying first. Then, memorize one line at a time and recite them daily until you get “Off-Book.” Use movement and emotional cues if you need help remembering difficult lines.
