Learning the lines

As a newbie to the FBP, not quite sure where to begin... As I went to my first ever FBP audition a few weeks back, I didn't really know what to expect. To my great surprise - and pleasure - I was cast in the upcoming production! Now the rehearsals have started in earnest, and each night after work I try to get my head down and learn my lines. I have a slight worry though... What if I go on stage on the opening night, open my mouth, and all that comes out is "meow"??
You see, last night I decided to record the play so that I could use it as a tool to learn my lines. I was reading it out loud when one of my cats decided that she wanted to come in to the bedroom where I was. She wasn't very happy with the door being closed and not being let in, and hence protested very loudly outside. As a result, I now have a recording of Act 1 interspersed with a cat meowing! As I will surely listen to this recording repeatedly until I learn my lines, what if I start to meow during the play??
