The conventional ways we’ve been taught how to memorize lines are ineffective, tedious, and boring. It doesn’t have to be this way! 

Line memorization can be fast, fun, and creative. In this workshop, you’ll learn new, innovative strategies (based on actual science) to help you learn lines faster and improve retention, so you can stop worrying about your lines and simply act.

You’ll learn:

  • 6 common mistakes actors make when it comes to memorizing lines and what to do instead.
  • 3 simple ways to turbo boost your memory..
  • A particular technique that allows you to remember MORE by studying LESS.
  • A tricky line memorization trap you may be falling into, and how to avoid it.
  • A simple hack that makes monologues MUCH easier to memorize.

Joyce Hshieh is a trained actress and graduate of The Theatre School at DePaul University. She is also a 3-day champion on the game show Jeopardy.

Combining her knowledge of acting with her knowledge of memorization and learning, she founded Off Book It, where through her course and coaching, she teaches actors how to memorize lines fast and make them stick. She’s helped many actors overcome their line memorization hurdles to achieve freedom and confidence in their acting.

She’s been a featured guest with Actors Breakfast Club, DaJuan Johnson’s Self-tapes that Book, Blythe Howard’s commercial workshop, Anastasia Edwards’s Actor’s Biz Facebook group, and the Why I’ll Never Make It Podcast.
