The Riverhead High School Blue Masques will present the musical comedy, “Mean Girls,” this weekend.

The musical is based on the 2004 teen comedy film of the same name written by Tina Fey and starring Lindsay Lohan. The Broadway run of the musical began in 2018 and ended in 2020 after the COVID-19 pandemic struck the United States.

The musical follows Cady Heron, the “new girl” in a suburban Illinois high school who is desperate to make friends and fit into the school. Cady falls prey to a trio of frenemies, the “Plastics,” led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. Cady and her friends devise a plan to end Regina’s reign and learn throughout the story about the cruel social hierarchy of high school.

The Riverhead production stars Rose Green as Cady Heron; Cheyanne Metzger as Janis Sarkisian; John Ellis as Damian Hubbard; Olivia Sulzer as Regina George; Kelsey Saladino as Gretchen Wieners; Ayla Fideli as Karen Smith; Ethan Caski as Aaron Samuels; Noah Lake as Kevin Gnapoor/Mr. Buck; Lillian Garcia as Ms. Norbury; Lesly Rivas as Mrs. George; and Owen Karlson as Mr Duvall.
