Elkhart HS to premiere musical version of 'Mean Girls'

ELKHART, Ind. -- You’ve heard of Mean Girls the movie, but how about the musical? Students at Elkhart High School will be a part of the Midwest premiere of the musical.

It’s a responsibility so big that the class actually got to talk with Tina Fey, who created and starred in the film in 2004.

The show is PG-13, meaning there will be some language or innuendos just like you would expect to find in some high schools.

Students in the school’s Tech Theatre Class put together the sets, and some will make you feel like they were pulled right from the movie, down to the burn book.

While the cast hopes to both impress you and make you laugh, they also hope you’ll pick up on the underlying messages the play focuses on like bullying, fitting in at a new school or peer pressure.

In order to have healthy discussions about these topics, EHS is hosting a forum with a social worker for parents and teens after Saturday’s show.

Shows will run March 10th and 11th at 7p.m., and March 12th at 2p.m in the Elkhart High School Auditorium.
