Use a tune from a song you know or make up one and sung it. I had to memorize part of the Constitution a while ago and I sung it to myself non stop and eventually it just stuck. This is just one of those things you have to keep practicing, giving it a tune really does help though

I'm not great at memorizing but when I do I find saying it out loud a lot and/or writing it out by hand (idk why but I always found it more effective then typing) multiple times usually helps. Another trick that has helped me in the past is if you write it on a cue card and then try to test yourself throughout the day, like before you go to bed or at lunchtime or something just try to recite it in your head and then you can glacé at your cue card to see how well you did. Good luck! :fox-:):

When memorizing scripts or anything speaking out loud, the best way i find to do it is to practice reading it. Read it over and over again, and do it aloud so you get a good grasp on the material. There's not much of an easy way out except practice, practice and more practice.
