Advanced Printing Problem

I have a Problem with an advamced printing task.

We have many scripts for a TV show to print. We print out each script for each actor. They rip out their scenes and throw away the rest of the script, resulting in 80% of the paper being wasted.

Here comes my question. Is there a way to print out the script for each actor, only printing his/her scenes?

It helps that in a script all character names are written in captial letters (e.G. "JONNY"), so a javascript could search for this exact name. And every scene ends on "***". 

So in my dummy mind I would need a script looking like the following:

seacrh for == "JONNY"

start printing

end on == "***"

 

I hope my problems gets across...

That you so much for your time!

Stay healthy

Yes, this is very likely possible with a script, but it will have to be custom-made for this specific task.
I've developed many similar tools in the past and would be happy to create this one for you, for a fee.

If you're interested feel free to contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com] to discuss it further.
