Question: Who is Anna Macadamia?
Mary Dewell: She is the villainess. She's mean to the other kids on the playground.

Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about acting in a 10-minute play?
M.D.: You have only 10 minutes, so you have to make the most of them. You have to impress the audience, so every line counts.

Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
