An "uproarious comedy that also pulls at the heartstrings"
– The Hollywood Reporter

Late Summer 2021 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

This biting and buoyant comedy was playing in the Albert Theatre when our stages went dark. Streamed  by over 4,000 people from more than 25 countries during our Intermission, School Girls will have a triumphant return you won’t want to miss.

As the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school sets her sights on the Miss Universe pageant, a new student unexpectedly changes the game. Don’t miss this “nasty-teen comedy, wonderfully refreshed and deepened” (The New York Times) that spotlights the universal similarities—and glaring differences—of teenage girls around the globe.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.
