Join the Scenemakers Board for School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play Scene Night! Network and mingle with other young professionals from around Chicago as you support new play development at Goodman Theatre.
First, enjoy a pre-show reception with complimentary drinks, hors d’oeuvres and live jazz music at Catch 35. Then, head over to the Goodman to see School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play – a biting and buoyant comedy, “ferociously entertaining, as heartwarming as it is hilarious” (The Hollywood Reporter), arrives in Chicago on the heels of a critically acclaimed, extended run Off-Broadway. 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.
Tickets are just $65, and a portion of each ticket supports new play development at the Goodman!
The Scenemakers Board is an auxiliary group comprised of diverse, young professionals who support the mission of the theater through fundraising, audience development and advocacy.
