We’re not like a regular school, we’re a cool school: Claire Collins is one of many dubs getting excited for the upcoming spring musical, Mean Girls.

The spring musical is a highlight for many North Atlanta students each year. Whether it be the bright lights, spectacular costumes, or outstanding performances, NAHS students can always count on an amazing show. The anticipation of the announcement of the upcoming 2024 spring musical is officially over, so get in losers, because the musical is “Mean Girls,” and it’s not a show anyone will want to miss. “Mean Girls” is a classic musical – and movie – centered around protagonist Catie Herron as she learns to navigate her way through the complex world of high school drama.

Many students have fantastic memories of watching the beloved musical with friends. For junior Christa Jenkins, she will get to make more of these memories around “Mean Girls” as she gears up for a last hurrah with her soon-to-be-graduate friends. Since last year’s theater department was mainly comprised of since-graduated seniors, Jenkins, and many other theater enthusiasts are hoping to draw in new participants to the musical. Seeing as this show is so universally known, many Dubs believe that the musical will be the needed push to get more kids involved in theater. “I think that ‘Mean Girls’ is just such a cult classic that everyone will be excited to go see it,” Jenkins said. 

However, not all dubs share the same enthusiasm as Jenkins when it comes to the newly announced musical. Many see it as a copy of last year’s Legally Blonde with two pink-themed productions in a row. For those involved in theater, there was a universal hope for the upcoming musical to be Carrie, so the announcement of “Mean Girls” was unforeseen. For junior Mirella Ogden, this viewpoint was certainly the case. However, any disappointment did not come from a place of malice for “Mean Girls” but instead from a place of love for “Carrie.” “I think it would have been a really awesome senior musical,” Ogden said. “Although I was a little disappointed at the announcement I can’t wait to but my all into this year’s production regardless.”

Like it or not, “Mean Girls” will, in fact, go here come spring, so get ready to wear pink on Wednesdays and make sure to keep on the theater department’s good side so as not to end up in the burn book before going to see the musical. One thing is sure: the musical is most certainly going to be so fetch, and it won’t be your fault if you’re in love with it or something.
