When it comes to how much we love Mean Girls, the limit does not exist. So, no wonder we couldn't be more excited for the Ottawa Mean Girls musical. Having moved from Broadway to the National Arts Centre, this travelling show will have you feeling all kinds of nostalgia when it arrives in the capital in June 2021. That’s right, the plastics are coming to town and this time you CAN sit with them. Well, in front of them, anyway.
With original writer Tina Fey on board, you can bet this stage performance will be packed with all of the relatable humour and charm from the iconic 2004 movie.
After all, this isn’t a regular musical, it’s a cool musical.
And with the same lyricist who worked on the incredible Legally Blonde musical, you can bet the songs will be iconic too.
Jingle Bell Rock, anyone?
Currently, with it being so far in advance, tickets are only available for Broadway Across Canada subscribers.
But, we imagine the show will sell out quickly, so keep your eyes peeled to the National Arts Centre (NAC) website for updates.
Now, all that’s left to do is grab your best pink shirt. Get in, loser, we’re going to the NAC.
The show will be in Ottawa from June 8-13, 2021, and will feature Canadian actress Danielle Wade as Cady Heron.
Everyone’s favourite personal victimizer, Regina George will be played by Mariah Rose Faith, with Gretchen and Karen being portrayed by Megan Masako Haley and Jonalyn Saxer, respectively.
Honestly, there’s a 30% chance we already love this show.
Mean Girls already has Ontario links, with the film having been filmed in part at the University of Toronto back in 2004.
And now, the musical, which has been so successful that it is being turned back into a movie (are you keeping up?), is coming to Canada's capital. You go, Glenn Coco.
So, if you never gave up on trying to make fetch happen or you simply can’t resist the chance to see Aaron Samuels with his hair pushed back, then be sure to mark this event on your calendars immediately.
And, remember, happy hour is from 4 'til 6!
