One thing I thought
One thing I thought to add to this: Almost every time I have soenome go up in lines they thought they had memorized, they say the same thing: I thought I had these memorized ! The problem for many is that they assume that just because they put in the time to memorize their lines, it automatically means they'll be able to deliver a better read and are able to concentrate on the performance part of the characterization. Not true in all cases. For many, they don't practice memorizing while performing so when they add the performance part at the audition, it's frequently the first time they've tried to do both and now they're more divided than if they had the script in their hand. It's almost as if they were juggling with two balls and suddenly, soenome gives them a third to add. So if you're going to memorize, practice what you want to do with the character at the same time. If you're not REALLY memorized and off book (no sides) then for God's sake, keep the sides in your hand. It's a bad bargain to place what words come next as the first in your hierarchy of importance instead of what you want to do with those words and that's what happens when you're not completely cold on you memorization. It's like having one foot on the dock and one foot on the boat. I'm now in a secondary market and don't have as many options for casting choices as I did when I was back home in Los Angeles. So I end up having to work a lot more to help an actor be camera ready for a part as it may be the difference between a solution and having to move on to even fewer options
