Cast of Characters
PEPPER: Lead guitar of the Chile Pepper Chicks who faints when nervous
CHI-CHI: Lead singer of the Chile Pepper Chicks
(Lights come up on a stage set up with various boxes, etc, a nice guitar and a backdrop for a Country Star Competition)
(PEPPER and CHI-CHI enter)
I can’t believe you made us late again, Pepper.
I’m sorry Chi-Chi. I had to get my rhinestones polished.
(PEPPER gets out her guitar and sets it on a stand)
You need to stop worrying about your appearance and think more about the music.
My appearance is half of what makes us an attraction, Chi-chi.
Your appearance? What about mine?
Sorry, sis. But you kind of let yourself go.
The only reason we keep you on is because of your singing.
We? We who?
We, me and the fans.
The fans adore me.
They adore me. They tolerate you.
That’s it. After this I’m going solo.
Good luck with that.
I can do it. I can.
You can’t even play an instrument. Or even write your own music. You’re lucky I can’t sing or I’d be going solo. Maybe I could just lipsinc. The lipsinc thing is big now.
You’d never make it either. You’d be like a deer in a headlight.
You’re terrified of being on stage. The only reason you survive is because all eyes are on me… the singer. You’re nothing without me either.
Man this place is big.
Oh, no. Don’t you…
How many people are gonna be here, Chi-Chi? Are they gonna have people here for the audition? Looks like a lot of people could be here.
Nobody’s here. Just us.
(Starts breathing hard)
I can’t do this, Chi-Chi.
(Breathing really hard)
Come on. You’ve played hundred of bars in front of hundreds of people.
But not all at once.
Calm down, Pepper. It’ll be okay.
Don’t do this, Pepper. You always do this when we get close… Please not now. This is our…
(PEPPER passes out into crate so only her boot are showing)
… big break.
(Looks at her)
(Looks at watch)
You know what? You want to go solo? Fine. You go solo. Have a nice audition.
(Stomps off stage)
