Blossom [mime script]

A beautiful, yet confronting, dancing mime about good and bad labels affecting women. This powerfully emotionally charged drama set to a harp and violin version of ‘Meditation’ by Massenet.(times listed below will vary per recording) eg

The script is tightly synced with the music’s swells, with a trained, flowing dancer. The aim is to connect the audience to the woman, feel her pain, (some will even relate, while others will be made aware of women struggling through such things) and then feel her joy as she has victory over the depths of Satan’s evilness.

This woman is to be totally broken from these initial unfair and confronting words, to the point of despair, and then is ultimately built up from the depth of Satan’s lies and see the ultimate inspiring truth: she is a loved child of God, as is every member of the audience.

Tips For Remembering Lines

Well, you can Google for yourself methods of remembering lines, but let me share how we operate to perhaps ease any stress.

  1. Your words  
    Usually the lines in scripts are opened to some interpretation. While care was taken to get the words in the script right, generally they do not have to be stuck to word for word - as long as you keep the sentiment of the original lines and flow of the dialogue, all is fine. Adding jokes may or may not be appropriate, and some words may be written as critical references to other parts to the script, so always check first if you have changes in mind - it may add or detract from the message and you don't know it.

  2. Promptings
    There are ways you can hide scripts, or get promptings, during a presentation, but use it as security - not in replacement of learning lines. Just mention it to the director.
    Cards hidden, a computer screen facing you, someone sitting at the base of the stage to call out, an ear piece and someone prompting you (tricky, try it first) OR props written into the script that hide the script like a newspaper, or phone or inside a box.
    Just avoid reading out the lines while you act. See them, get prompted, and then look away and say them.

  3. Repetition
    Generally, repetition works. As hard as a script seems to begin with, put a bit of time in and you should start to find the words coming back to you.

  4. Sections
    Try learning little sections at a time well before moving on ot the whole script.

  5. Methods
    See if any of these work for you:
    -record the script audio and listening to it over and over.
    -draw the script in cartoon form so you can visualize where the dialogue is going.
    -filming it and watch it over and over
    -make sure you rehearse it with others, and while doing any required actions.

  6. It's not Shakespeare
    People do not know the script. So when things come out differently, or ad-libbing comes to the rescue, most of the time, no one watching ever knows! As long as you know where the drama is meant to head and what the ultimate message is just keep rolling.

Greedy-up [mime script]

A mime skit with balloons about greed and generosity

[Set to some fitting movie soundtrack music backing, like Indiana Jones's 'the snake pit']

Balloon-Creator pumps up balloons constantly, (8 in total on stage) not tying them off, just holding one once it’s pumped and waits, and hands it over each time someone approaches.

Gree-Dee, seeing the first balloon is ready, rushes to get the first balloon, and takes it.

Jen-Ross politely approached for the first balloon but missed and waits politely.

Gree-Dee snatches the second, third and fourth balloon as they are finished (before Jen-Ross can get their first balloon - reaching out politely each time to take it but missing out). Gree-Dee now has two balloons in each hand and looks smug.
