"Mean Girls" High School Edition Seeks Teenagers
Looking for performers ages 14-18 for "Mean Girls" High School Edition. Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady and her friends devise a “Revenge Party” to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung. Additional info: Please prepare 1-2 minutes of a musical theater solo (Bluetooth speaker & piano accompaniment will be available). Also please do a little research if you’re unfamiliar with the show, and come prepared to share a short summary of “Mean Girls” from ANY character’s perspective (i.e. “in character”). You choose the character; you tell us the story. Directors want to see your acting choices! Finally, be prepared for both a short improv reading section (“cold read”) and some basic choreography. If interested, please apply.
A new junior at North Shore High School, Cady grew up in Africa and was homeschooled by her wildlife biologist parents. She is warm, bright, and strong enough to take on The Plastics. Is the emotional heart of our story. Vocal range top: Gb5 Vocal range bottom: G3
Regina is the Queen Bee of the Plastics. When she shines her light on you, you feel like the most important person in the world. When that light goes cold, you want to die. She is regal, still, and “hot”, but at her most vulnerable moments, she is just a kid in over her head. Vocal range top: Gb5 Vocal range bottom: F#3
An “Art Freak” and social outcast, Janis is not afraid to be weird or make others uncomfortable. She paints herself as an objective observer, but, like so many of us, she longs to avenge the devastating events of eighth grade. Vocal range top: F5 Vocal range bottom: Ab3
Outgoing and an active member of the student activities committee, Damian is a fiercely loyal friend to Janis and they have the close rapport of a comedy team. Vocal range top: A4 Vocal range bottom: F2
One of the Plastics. Desperate to please Regina and to maintain her position in Plastics, Gretchen is a nervous wreck. She is a “banker” meaning she befriends people to “bank” their secrets so she can trade them later for her own benefit. Her fragility at times is heartbreaking.

One of the Plastics. Although her intellect and personality never had a chance tto develop, Karen is essentially kind, relaxed, and a generous laugher. Vocal range top: Gb5 Vocal range bottom: G3
A cute boy with a good moral compass and a backbone. He’s not immune to all the female attention he gets, but he’s not going to let himself be a pawn in their chess game either. Broadway and pop tenor. Vocal range top: Bb4 Vocal range bottom: B2
Kevin is the extremely driven captain of the North Shore Mathletes. He is a confident student and a decent rapper.
The principal of North Shore High. Mr. Duvall may have once taught computers at Joliet penitentiary, but nothing prepared him for the harsh realities of out-of-control junior girls. Funny and a strong singer.
Mrs. Heron is Cady’s intellectual mom who can’t understand why her daughter is devolving before her eyes.
Ms. Norbury is Cady’s world-weary Calculus teacher who pushes Cady to be her smartest self.
Mrs. George is Regina’s “cool mom.” She’s desperate to look young and feel like one of the teens. She’s also desperate for Regina not to repeat her mistakes. Great singer. Vocal range top: Eb5 Vocal range bottom: G3
