Develop a plan for how to deliver lines at given moments and how to move your body to fit with those lines. Tip Work with a director. Step 3: Practice Practice the show until every movement and every line is perfect. Step 4: Find a space Shop around for the best space, and ask a lot of questions so you know of any potential pitfalls that might come with the venue. Step 5: Get a production photograph Have a professional production photograph taken for your poster and send it out to the press to get attention for the show. Step 6: Improvise Improvise during the show. React to what happens in the space and interact with the audience. Tailor your piece to the audience at each show, and they will respond positively.
