Mean Girls (High School Version)

Based on the hit 2004 film, Mean Girls tells the story of Cady Heron, a teenage girl who finds herself in a suburban Illinois public high school after years of being home-schooled on the African savanna. Confronted with the animalistic social order of American teenagers, Cady devises a plan to topple the school's queen bee Regina George and her cohorts: The Plastics. Unlike most high school revisions that include a version of a show's script and score with changes tailored to teenage performers, Mean Girls High School Version will include the full, unedited script of the show along with a list of approved changes that individual schools can decide whether or not to use. The first-of-its-kind setup allows schools to customize their production of Mean Girls for their own community.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

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 devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

Mean Girls, the brutally hilarious musical from book writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock”, Bossypants), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and composer Jeff Richmond (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) was adapted from Fey’s 2004 hit film and took Broadway by storm in 2018, receiving 12 Tony Award nominations.

Mean Girls High School Version is the first show of its kind from MTI. Customers will receive the full, unedited script of the show along with a list of “Approved Changes” for moments where teachers have identified content that may be challenging for schools. This allows licensees to pick and choose what works and does not work for their communities to create their best productions. Mean Girls High School Version is currently only available for licensing exclusively to accredited K-12 schools in the US and Canada for a limited time.
