Small-town Ohio, 1977. In her bright yellow bedroom, preteen Patty dreams about an Indian dancing boy scout, a green velvet dress (like Scarlett O'Hara's) and a fabulous future in musical theater. Her diary tells all!

“Patty Nieman's play was all that I would've hoped.  She is talented, fun to watch, and tells a tale of what it is to be 12-going-on-13 remarkably well (probably because it was written by a 12-going-on-13 year-old).  The songs were superb.  The arrangements were el-neato.  And for reasons that I'm not completely sure of, I started to cry when she pulled out her green dress-clad Scarlett O'Hara doll.  The show is simple and innocent and wonderful.  It's a reminder that though four-letter words reign supreme at the Fringe by sheer overwhelming volume, a good script will win out over vulgarity any day.” - Christopher O. Kidder, CityPages.
