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. Cady and her friends devise a “Revenge Party” to end Regina’s reign with Cady going undercover as an aspiring Plastic. When the lines between the real Cady and her Plastic self get blurred, she must find her way back to herself and her true friends.

Adapted from Fey’s 2004 blockbuster film and the Broadway smash hit, Mean Girls JR. is a fearless musical about chasing popularity and being true to yourself.

Mean Girls JR is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com

Bree Igoe (Windward/Ensemble) is 10 years old and is a student at Gold Rush Charter School. Last summer she delivered some amazing one-liners as Grumpy Dwarf in SRT’s Shrek. This spring she got many laughs as the over-indulgent enabler Mrs. Gloop in SRT Jr’s Wonka KIDS. Bree is always looking to bring joy to those around her with a good story and her full-body laugh. When she’s not talking or singing, she is busy daydreaming about the marvelous things she plans to do with her life.
