Why did this end up being one of my favorite parts -- and favorite shows, you may ask? Well, it's simple. Kim MacAfee gets such good songs (like "How Lovely to Be a Woman" -- complete with changing my clothes on stage -- and "One Boy"), and the part was made famous in the movie by the ever fabulous, who wouldn't want to be her, super sexy Ann-Margret. But another reason? THE CLOTHES.
I seriously LOVED my costumes in this show. They weren't necessarily anything special to the naked eye, but they were just so 60s. From the floral skirt and blouse I wore in the beginning of the show to the red sweater and plaid pedal pushers I wore toward the end, I was just obsessed with how I got to dress for this part.

And yes, of course I got to talk on the phone during this show. Because it basically mirrored my high school life.
