It's never too early to start saving for something as epic as the upcoming Mean Girls musical, which will begin a limited run starting October 31 at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. That's right, Mean Girls is premiering on Halloween, so if you score tickets, don't even think about showing up without a zombie bride or mouse costume. (I'd choose mouse because it's probably easier for commuting and sitting down.) The official cast was unveiled Thursday. Here's what Cady, Regina, Aaron Samuels, and company look like.
Erika Henningsen (Cady Heron)
Erika most recently played Fantine in the Broadway production of Les Misérables in New York City, so you know she can sing. Based on her Instagram, she loves the great outdoors, group selfies, and dogs, especially her dog brother Theo.
Taylor Louderman (Regina George)
Taylor will also make the trip from New York to D.C., as she stars in the current production of Kinky Boots as Lauren. She's also appeared in another '00s classic-turned-musical: Bring It On.
Ashley Park (Gretchen Wieners)
Ashley's lengthy resume includes productions of Sunday in the Park with George, The King and I, Mamma Mia! and Cinderella. One time, Ashley drank out of a lightbulb (which I'm sure was properly disinfected and what not before it became a cute Instagram-worthy drink).
Kyle Selig (Aaron Samuels)
Before practicing for the perfect "What day is it?" Kyle made his Broadway debut in The Book of Mormon while still in drama school. Kyle loves Haim, waiting in the "Boyfriend's Club" area at Anthropologie, and unlike you, has seen Hamilton. What a good man (re: Anthropologie).
Kate Rockwell (Karen Smith)
Kate has also appeared in the musical version of Bring It On on Broadway, along with productions of Legally Blonde and Hair. This is a picture of Kate with a cute dog, who unfortunately won't be in the Mean Girls musical.
Barrett Wilbert Weed (Janis Sarkisian)
On the west coast, Barrett played Veronica in the Hollywood production of Heathers: The Musical, so you know she'll probably crush the role of Janis (and hopefully, rock Janis's epic hair). Barrett is a world traveler, loves wine in the ocean, and a good eyebrow selfie. See above.
Grey Henson (Damian Hubbard)
Like the dude behind Aaron Samuels, Grey also made his Broadway debut in The Book of Mormon. Grey's a pretty good painter, is a fan of the face swap filter, and loves bejeweled hats. Grey and Barrett (Janis) took the above photo months before today's announcement, so their onstage antics should be pretty spot-on come October.
Kerry Butler (Ms. Norbury)
Kerry's Broadway credits include Xanadu, Beauty and the Beast (she was Belle!), and Catch me If You Can. She's also appeared on TV: 30 Rock, The Mindy Project, Elementary, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (playing Lorelai and Emily's shared therapist). Kerry loves pasta, or at least according to her Instagram.
Cheech Manohar (Kevin G.)
Cheech is an NYC-based performer who's also pretty good at dancing. I mean really good. He's a trained Bollywood dancer and choreographer and has traveled across the U.S. to spread his talents. Mean Girls will mark Cheech's Broadway debut. That's him and his mom on Instagram. Is your heart full or what?
Rick Younger (Mr. Duvall)
When he's not doing standup, Rick can be found making guest appearances on the small screen. He's been on everything from Girls to Law & Order: SVU. He loves taking selfies with his lookalike son.
