What do you do if you forget your line?

What do you do if you forget your line?

One of our favourite aspects of the shows we do here at DuffleBag Theatre is the fact they’re part scripted and part improvised. That means we’re all rehearsed for a scripted show that tells the story from beginning to end but there’s room to “improvise”, meaning, make things up on the spot, throughout. So if we do happen to forget a line, we’re trained and used to going with the flow and thinking of another line to fill its place in the moment. Some of the funniest moments and lines can come out of those times and can actually end up added to the actual script for future shows! So if you ever forget a line in a show or in life, don’t panic. Just do what you can to stay in the moment and come up with something to say. You never know, it might be even better than what was there before!
