LINE?
The Creative Way for Actors
to Quickly Memorize
Monologues and Dialogues
 
If you've ever struggled to remember your lines, the creative memorization techniques taught in LINE? will help you break through your mental blocks and accelerate the line memorization process. Author Jared Kelner has applied his experience as an actor and acting teacher and combined that with his expertise as a memory improvement trainer and created an imagination and sensory based process for actors to use when memorizing lines. It’s an innovative approach to line memorization that taps into the actor’s imagination and acting training rather than relying on monotonous rote memorization methods like highlighting, recording and repeating lines over and over. By applying the creative memorization methods presented in LINE? you will instantly recall your lines.

INDUSTRY TESTIMONIALS

"I have been teaching acting for over 50 years and I rarely come across innovations to the craft process that I believe in and support. Without hesitation, I fully endorse and recommend Jared Kelner's book LINE? The Creative Way for Actors to Quickly Memorize Monologues and Dialogues. ​Every actor must memorize lines and most actors look at the line memorization process as something outside of the craft of acting, but in fact, it is very much an integral part of the craft process and as such, actors need a craft technique to help them. In his book LINE?, Jared Kelner brings something inventive, innovate and important to the craft of acting. The technique of imaging that Jared teaches for line memorization mirrors imaging concepts I share in my book Acting, Imaging and the Unconscious. I am pleased to endorse Jared Kelner and his contribution to our craft. LINE? is a must read for every actor."

“I wish I had a dime for every actor who has told me their biggest fear was memorizing lines. So I was delighted when I discovered Jared Kelner and was able to introduce him to my students. The response to LINE? Was so positive. The actors felt they had received valuable tools to overcome their fears and move forward in their work with confidence. Jared’s positive enthusiastic style is so encouraging it’s a pleasure to be in the classroom with him.”

"OK Actors, Quiet your mind and get this book. It will change your life for knowing your lines forever."

"Kelner has taken the drudgery of memorization and changed it into a creative exercise that enriches the acting while learning the lines.
As a senior citizen actor it's invaluable for this old dog to learn these new tricks of memorization.
Using a full palette of memory aids, he gives the actor choices to find the methods that resonate best for any role or situation.
As an acting teacher I heartily recommend his approaches for any actor."

THE RULE BOOK
WHAT IS COLLEGE TOUR BINGO 
AND HOW DO YOU PLAY?
 
     College Tour Bingo is a fun, family game that is played while sitting in the lecture room listening to the Admissions Advisor talk about the college and while you are out walking around campus on your guided tour. It is a fun way to keep the entire family engaged and actively participating in the day’s events.
    In the book, you’ll read about the various College Tour Bingo games and how each are played. Equally important are the list of sayings, objects, people, groups and events that you’ll be looking and listening for. Just like traditional Bingo, when a number is called, if your game card has that number, you mark it off, the same holds true for the College Tour Bingo game. As you listen to the lectures and walk around campus, if you see or hear something that matches one of the sayings, objects, people, groups or events listed on your game card, you would mark off that square.
The first person in your family to mark off all the required boxes for that game would call out “College Tour Bingo” (as loud or as quiet as you are comfortable with) and would then be declared the winner. Of course, the family has the option to check the winner’s College Tour Bingo game card for accuracy and can challenge any box that was marked off. But don’t get too competitive with the challenges. The game is supposed to be fun, not cause any frustration or anger (especially with the younger siblings and Grandpa for that matter). From a parent’s perspective, as long as the kids and relatives are happy, you’ve won.
    Other than the pages in this book, which you’ll tear out and distribute to the players, the other item you’ll need is something to write with to mark off your boxes. It’s best if each player has their own pen, pencil or marker, so everyone can mark their own boxes as fast as possible. You’ll also need prizes for the winners. In the Prize section, there are suggestions for prizes, but you are encouraged to think up rewards that you know will motivate and excite your family.
    There are enough copies of the various College Tour Bingo game cards in the book to last a family of six many college tours, but if you would like to order refills of the College Tour Bingo game cards,
