Question
Hello:

What is a good technique to learn lines in plays or films?
I seem to have difficulty learning dialogue.  Can you offer some advice?

I thank you for your reply.

Answer
Kenneth,

Go over the lines many many times. Do this alone and with a partner.
Learn them in small parts-baby steps.

Learn the lines the same way you learned how to spell "cat" or "1+1=2".

I know this is an over simplified way of looking at it, but there is no real magic pill to learn lines.

Break a leg!
