Is "The Dutchess" in "Alice in Wonderland" a main character?

My school is putting on the production of "Alice in Wonderland" by Eva Le Gallienne and I was cast as The Dutchess. I was curious as to whether or not she is a character with a lot of lines, seeing as the only main characters are Alice and The White Rabbit. I am aware of the famous "Pig and Pepper" scene with The Dutchess and Alice, but I am unsure as to how many other parts/lines she's in/has. I would greatly appreciate and input and or information. Thank You

    There is an old saying "There are no small parts, only small actors".

    The only scene the duchess has with lines to my knowledge is the pig and the pepper scene and you could be wonderful doing it. If you really do your homework with this character, and give her a whole back life it could be a wonderful scene and you will shine!
