The Oak Hill Middle Theater Performs its Rendition of 'Mean Girls Jr.'


On Friday and Saturday, March 15th and 16th, amid the myriad celebrations happening throughout the district, Oak Hill Middle was belting out the tunes with its Spring performance of 'Mean Girls Jr.' starring Kyle Ramsey in his fourth production with Oak Hill Theatre, Ashley Mullis also in her fourth production with Oak Hill, and Amelia J. Tanner who has been performing since she was six years old!


The play was directed by J.R. Shuman, choreographed by Oak Hill Dance Teacher Crystal Williams and featured musical direction by Brad Bell. "Mean Girls Jr." is a youth-oriented adaptation of the popular musical "Mean Girls," which itself is based on the 2004 film written by Tina Fey.


This version was tailored for younger performers and audiences, condensing the story into a 60-minute format suitable for school and junior theatre productions. The musical was created by Tina Fey (book), Nell Benjamin (lyrics), and Jeff Richmond (music), bringing the story's sharp wit, catchy music, and positive messages to a new generation. Oak Hill's rendition retained the essential plot of the original, following Cady Heron as she navigates the social complexities of North Shore High School, including encounters with the infamous Plastics. "Mean Girls Jr." aims to deliver its themes of friendship, integrity, and self-discovery in a format that's accessible and engaging for younger participants and viewers.


Congratulations on a stunning performance to the cast as well as everyone who worked behind the scenes to make this a truly remarkable event.
