Honestly, its rather freaking me out that we only have 3 weeks!!! I've never done any performance in such a short period of time and suddenly I felt that I'm running out of time. Got my script yesterday and both roles aren't easy to play, rather challenging for me, even to memorize the scripts itself takes me to almost midnights
Here, a brief intro by The Actors Studio (cut and paste from a promotional e-mail). Come support our local theatre...and me!!!
