These are my tricks for memorising and really knowing your script. Obviously there are going to be your rehearsals with the cast and director but there is a lot of work for you to do too in your own time. Getting around a script can be tricky – especially if you have a large amount of lines. This is a summary of my method for some of the lead roles I have played but I think it can be applied to most scripted characters. Give it a try and find what works for you!
