Introducing the MEAN GIRLS Plastics – They’re Fetch!
Where are you going to sit? With the jocks? The Mathletes? The nerds? Or will the Plastics let you sit with them? After all, they are the prettiest girls in school.
MEAN GIRLS, based on the hit movie by Tina Fey comes to the SHN Golden Gate Theatre as part of the SHN 2019-2020 season. A hit on Broadway, this new musical is written by Tina Fey with music by Jeff Richmond and is directed by Casey Nicholaw (Book of Mormon, Aladdin). To get tickets, become a member now. Click HERE.
The musical has just announced that newcomer singer-songwriter Mariah Rose Faith will lead the trio as Regina George with Wicked national tour alum Megan Masako Haley as Gretchen Wieners and MEAN GIRLS original Broadway ensemble member Jonalyn Saxer stepping into the role of Karen Smith.
New York Magazine calls MEAN GIRLS “HILARIOUS! A smart, splashy new musical that delivers with immense energy, a wicked sense of humor and joyful inside-jokery.” Chicago Tribune said “Tina Fey writes FUNNIER, SMARTER, SHARPER satire than anyone else in the business.” People Magazine calls the show “FRESH, FUN AND INFECTIOUS – Jeff Richmond and Nell Benjamin’s songs keep the laughs coming!” The New York Daily News said MEAN GIRLS “TICKLES THE EARS, EYES AND FUNNY BONE – the direction by Casey Nicholaw packs style, invention and red bull-force energy.” And, Entertainment Weekly calls it “A MARVEL: DAZZLING & HILARIOUS!”
MARIAH ROSE FAITH (Regina George) was certainly not Regina George in high school, but she’s excited to be stepping into those heels now! Mariah Rose Faith is a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and you may recognize her from Team Starkid or Youtube (which is how she got her initial audition!).
