I need to learn some lines for Drama. one script I'm doing o.k. on.
But I'm having trouble remembering my lines for the second script.
Any Advice?

I need to know all my lines for Monday, because we are supposed to be showing our Devised Drama to an Invited audience on Tuesday and I ned pracise performing it without the script.

Is the second script very different to the first? Maybe there is something about the second script that won't go into your head.

If you are working in a group then perhaps you could ask someone else to practise with you. If you can't do that, you could practise out loud in front of a mirror. Or you could record your script and play it back to yourself when you can. You could keep a copy with you and whenever you have nothing to do you could take it out and read it. Maybe if you illustrate the script or use bright colours then this might help you to remember it. You could even sing the words to music if that helps.

If you read it just before bed then you might have a dream that may help you to remember it!

Try recording them on a tape and listening to them while you follow them on the script.

put down stuff that you would normally say, I ended up making the audiences piss their pants almost when I just said random nonscence. As long as it has something to do with waht's going on and who you're involved with no one should really care.

Thanks for the advice. I managed to learn my lines and not forget them, and the perfomance went well. I would have replyed sooner, but the computer wasn't working properly (something about the fan)

Hehe, I'm interested in dreams, the dream thing actually could work well, because you dream from your sub concious.
