Hi A. P. Damien, 

As I understand it, you have existing functions which you want to call by
passing the name of a function as a string to a generic method. 
By 'script' I take you to mean an external text source. 

public function makeTheCall(s:String):void{ 
   //use try/catch to handle errors
   try {
   catch(e:ReferenceError) {

I don't think so.

'Always' is a tricky word. The functions you want to call need to be in the
same Class in order for the 'this' keyword to work. The function's name and
the  function name string must be an exact match for case and spelling.
