Much Ado About Mean Girls

Saturday July 20, 2019 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Horton Grand Theatre

Experience a live performance of the epic drama Mean Girls as a Shakespeare play, complete with Elizabethan verse, iambic pentameter, Shakespearian monologues, and theatrical stage directions! Based on the book from bestselling author Ian Doescher (William Shakespeare's Star Wars), the audiobook narrators will perform select scenes from this cult classic. Power struggles. Bitter rivalries. Jealousy. Betrayals. When you think about it, it's pretty surprising William Shakespeare didn't actually write Mean Girls . Thou shalt wear pink upon the morrow!
