Scott plays the role of Maria, the Innkeeper’s wife, in Man of La Mancha.

For Scott, Maria is “fun” to portray because, “Maria is unlike me; she is a snotty, mean character who insults Don Quixote (the main character) numerous times.” 

She says her biggest challenge in the role is to “become” a character that is so unlike her. 

 

Caleb Harrison as “Dr. Carrasco”

Harrison plays the role of Dr. Carrasco, who is the fiancé of Don Quixote’s niece.  He does not want a madman to marry into the family, so he sets out to “cure” Don Quixote. Dr. Carrasco is self-assured and well-read, with a self-inflated ego. Essentially, he is only interested in furthering his career and holdings. 

Harrison likes, “the way in which [Carrasco] is so full of himself that he is not aware what others really think of him.” 

The biggest challenge to portraying Carrasco, according to Harrison, is, “trying not to become like the character off stage!”
