Actors are expected to learn their character’s lines verbatim for a 90-second audition, 10-minute play, one-act play, two-act play, or three-act play. Depending on the play and the character, an actor can have quite a bit of lines to learn in a short period. For a peek into the process of learning lines, take a moment to learn a short poem. If you experience difficulty, please view the video highlighting brief tips to learn lines below.
Please visit the provided link and learn the poem Death, Be Not Proud by John Donne. Note: the memorized poem will be uploaded by video submission via Blackboard on Friday, September 22nd at 10 pm. Uploading and recording instructions are provided below.
Note: The graded memorized selection will come directly from the link above. For your convenience, I have also posted the poem below.
Death, Be Not Proud
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery.
Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell;
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than thy stroke; why swell’st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
