I play Dolores, a housewife in the 1920's living in Harrison, Texas. Dolores's painfully awkward niece is visiting and Dolores is trying to get her over her social ineptitude around boys by teaching her to be gracious. It's going to be such a fun part and I can't wait to do it but I'm starting to get a little nervous about my lines.
Dolores is a talker and is in most of the play which I'm guessing is going to be around 30 minutes long when we perform it. She has several monologues and I've never had to memorize so many in such a short amount of time. Our director, Eric, would like us to have our lines memorized when we start rehearsal on January 3rd because we open on February 3rd and one month is not a long time to rehearse. I really really want to do a good job with this play because when I did 3 Musketeers I had a lot of issues. I just don't want to be thought of as difficult to work with. I just don't want my work ethic to be called into question and I want to make a good impression and I feel like I have to make up for my last play a little too.
