Using Asterisk to Dial and Talk with Festival

My second hurdle is how can you fire off an asterisk dial plan from
the (bash) command prompt?

Asterisk has a -x command line switch that lets you fire off Asterisk
CLI commands from the bash command line. However, I don't see anything
that could trigger a dial plan to execute.

Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place. Maybe I should automate a SIP
client that is connected to this Asterisk server and not try to do
this from the Asterisk server itself?
