Workshop 4: Line Memorization

  • The Annex 523 South Street London, ON, N6B 1C4 Canada (map)

Sunday, February 10 from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm OR
Wednesday, February 13 from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

How do actors remember all of those lines? Come find out in this workshop on Line Memorisation for theatre performance, led by local theatre favourite Matthew J. Stewart (LCP credits include Twelfth Night, Arcadia, Noises Off). You’ll look at different line memorisation techniques, what to do if you’re an auditory or a visual learner, and how to use your body and breath as a tool for muscle memory and word association. Use keys in the text to help those lines stick, and share the experience with others in a supportive and exploratory environment.

 This New Stage Workshop Series is held at the London Community Players Annex Space at 523 South St. Each workshop begins promptly at its indicated start time. The building will be open a minimum of 30 minutes beforehand. Please take weather into account, and arrive with enough time to get settled before the beginning of the workshop itself.

You may wish to bring a pen and notebook, water, and a sweater if you're prone to getting chilly.
