In 2004, Tina Fey’s iconic movie was released to immediate acclaim. This hilarious and biting comedy offered plenty of quotable lines, but it also presented a window into the lives of high school students and the high-stakes social pressures they face. In a note to the directors of the musical Tina Fey writes, “I set out to write truthfully and with humor about relational aggression among girls. I hoped that if we could recognize this behavior […] and laugh about it, it would be easier to stop doing it. Spoiler alert: I did not fix the world! Relational aggression is still around. And it’s not just among girls. We see it everywhere, from the highest branches of government to the preschool playground.” In this story, the mean girls are not defeated, they are empowered to trust that they are enough as human beings and that they too can shine. 
We are so proud to be presenting MEAN GIRLS, a production with the largest cast & crew ever recorded in the history of the Greenhill Upper School Theater! Thank you to our talented cast and crew who have dedicated much of their time this semester to creating this exciting musical comedy. 
***Due to some more mature themes and language, Greenhill School recommends this performance to audiences 13 and up.***
