Why see Mean Girls?

GET IN LOSERS, WE'RE GOING ON TOUR!

Tina Fey's Drama Desk award-winning Broadway musical, based on the 2004 Lindsay Lohan film, Mean Girls is out on tour! With a book by Fey, direction by Book of Mormon's Casey Nicholaw, music and lyrics by Jeff Richmond, and Legally Blonde's Nell Benjamin - which includes tracks "Apex Predator" and "I'd Rather Be Me"- it's no surprise that the musical is a Broadway smash hit, earning 12 Tony nominations along the way.

THE TOTALLY FETCH STORY OF MEAN GIRLS

Cady Heron is a bright home-schooled student who has spent most of her life in Africa with her parents. Now back in the US, she's sent to the local high school to learn to play with others. Turns out, it might be her biggest challenge yet. Coupled with learning what normal school is like, she must navigate the twisting social whirl that surrounds her. When she finds herself the target of the infamous Plastics, led by wolf in sheep's clothing Regina George, Cady decides with her new friends Janis and Damien that it's time to put a stop to their dictatorship.

As Cady's plan sees her growing ever more popular and catching the eye of a certain boy, her revenge seems less and less important. Can Cady rediscover herself and bring down the Plastics, or will she be seduced by their world and lost to the Mathletes forever? It might be a classic high-school conundrum but we guarantee you won't mind seeing how this one plays out.

Fun show with an extremely talented cast! Must Watch!

As a theatre lover, who has watched several shows, loved this adaptation of Mean Girls. Fun, light hearted but still driving home the message for youth, it's a must watch! Special shoutout to the cast who brought character to their roles and gave their own little nuances to them. Standouts include Natalie Shawn who plays Cady Heron, Alexys Morera who plays Janis and Hershey native Shawn Mathews who brings new life to the character of Kevin G. ... Read more

It was a wonderful musical. The cast was very talented, and there were some incredible singers. However, the volume for the microphones was that so loud that at certain points, it was literally painful to listen and made it difficult to make out the lyrics. unfortunately, this significantly detracted from an otherwise excellent show. ...

I don’t know what everyone’s talking about it was AMAZING

It was so amazing! I went with my mom and sister who have seen a bootleg and seen the movie. We were so exited and our expectations were met! The actors were amazing and I don’t know what everyone is saying about Regina she was amazing. Cady was a little high but still amazing. People are also complains about it being to inappropriate and not suit for kids, but , yeah ITS NOT MADE FOR THE YOUNGER AUDIENCE. Check the age rating! Don’t bring your kids to a musical you have never seen or heard. It’s not their fault you won’t check an age rating 🙄. Honestly an amazing show and totally recommend! ... Read more
