RCSA On Stage! – Mean Girls Enrollment

Book by Tina Fey
Music by Jeff Richmond
Lyrics by Nell Benjamin
Based on the Paramount Pictures film Mean Girls

Directed by Rob Scharlow
Music Directed by James Mablin


On Wednesdays we wear pink! Join the in-crowd with this Tony-nominated musical.

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George.

But when Cady and her friends devise a “Revenge Party” to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung. Adapted from Fey’s hit 2004 film, Mean Girls was nominated for a staggering 12 Tony Awards.
