Join the Teen Annex for the iconic stage adaptation based on the hit film! This show will bring to life the most quotable scenes of all time. Don't miss out, this show is gonna be so FETCH. In our screen to stage adaptation of Mean Girls, it will follow the story of Teenage Cady Heron who was homeschooled for most of her life by her scientist parents. When her family moves to the suburbs, Cady finally gets to experience public school and gets a quick run-down on the cruel, tacit laws of popularity that divide her fellow students into tightly knit cliques. She unwittingly finds herself in the good graces of an elite group of cool students dubbed "the Plastics," but Cady soon realizes how her shallow group of new friends earned this nickname.

Even though this is a comedy it still has complex characters that will provide a great challenge and amazing creative experience for your teens, as we explore the highs and lows of high school from this well-known early 2000’s movie. As always The TKTC TEEN ANNEX aims to challenge its casts while also providing more lead & supporting roles  than anywhere else around! This show especially has SOOOOOO many hysterical characters with depth that will make this Summer a complete blast!!
