I am going to be in a play soon, very soon! (I am talking next week premier soon) and I need to remember my lines. Is there another way other than reading them with someone else so I can remember them?
I would keep saying one line out loud over and over and over until it's stuck in your brain. Then say the next line over and over and over until it's stuck in your brain. Then say them both together over and over and over until they are stuck in your brain. Keep going until you have it all memorized. Pretty time consuming, but I think that's the best way. When you're saying your lines out loud, you could also try using different voices, accents, emotions, etc. That might help you become more familiar with the line. Another thing you could try is recording the entire play on an audio device and then listen to it over and over again. Not only will that help you memorize your own lines, but you'll also know your cues. Or, you could record everyone elses lines on audio, leaving space for you to say yours. When you listen to it, say your lines where they fit in.

Or like the way we all learn the words to a song. But practice every chance you get. & youtube whatever you can on acting classes. And see how it's done.
i like to record myself speaking the lines in between each of my own with enough time to say my own lines. then i play it back and keep saying my lines while looking at the script as little as possible untill i don't need it any more. hope that helps. good luck! :)
it is a fact that if you say something out loud and listen to yourself for 21 times you can remember it...I do alot of auditions and modeling so I do this and it has worked for me
do certain sections at a time. once you have fully memorized one section move onto the next one:)
I was in a play in high school I had the lines written on my arms haha
