Question: I'm preparing for my first show but have encountered the fear of memorizing and remembering (forgetting) all that dialogue. Are there any tricks or short cuts regarding this?

Answer: First shows should ideally be kept shorter in length. With experience you will in good time be able to provide longer shows. Use a cue card or cards to help remember your script. Key words and phrases that will keep you on track. Some vents try to find clever ways to hide the cue card, and while that is appropriate, I don't feel it is totally necessary. Most speakers and Pastors use notes - our President can't give even a short speech without his tele-prompter. There's no need to hesitate to use some sort of helps to avoid total memorization of a script - especially when presenting it for the first time.
