What is Mean Girls Musical about?

It’s the screen version of the stage version of the best teen movie of the 21st century. Or, in more detail:

“New student Cady Heron is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called ‘The Plastics,’ ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George and her minions Gretchen and Karen. However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels, she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis and Damian, she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.”

The cast of Mean Girls Musical

Angourie Rice is Cady Heron, Reneé Rapp is Regina George, Auliʻi Cravalho is Janis ‘Imi’ike, Jaquel Spivey is Damian Hubbard, Bebe Wood is Gretchen Wieners, Avantika Vandanapu is Karen Shetty, with Christopher Briney, Jenna Fischer, Busy Philipps, Mahi Alam, Connor Ratliff, Jon Hamm, and Ashley Park in support. Tim Meadows and Tina Fey are reprising their roles from the original film, too, with Fey once again on scripting duties (with tunes by composer Jeff Richmond and lyricist Nell Benjamin, veterans of the Broadway show).

Why we’re excited about Mean Girls Musical

We just want to find out if we’re still cool. But for real, Mean Girls Musical is an absolute banger, and we’re keen to see if its tale of inter-clique high school warfare is as timeless as we think it is. Plus, it’s about time the hugely talented Angourie Rice started racking up some more leading roles.
