Tickets for the Broadway production of Mean Girls go on sale on October 3, and to celebrate, the August Wilson Theatre box office will be open for sales beginning at 10am, producers have announced.

From 11am-1pm on "Mean Girls Day," in-person attendees will be treated to surprise guest appearances, show-branded swag, and free cheese fries from the Sweetery Brand's mobile food truck. Fans will be able to catch the food truck throughout the afternoon at various Manhattan spots: 43rd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues (1:30pm) and Union Square West between 16th and 17th Streets (3:30pm).

Featuring a book by nine-time Emmy winner Tina Fey, a score by three-time Emmy winner Jeff Richmond and Tony nominee Nell Benjamin, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw, Mean Girls will have its premiere October 31-December 3 at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. Broadway previews begin Monday, March 12, in advance of a Sunday, April 8, opening night.

The cast of Mean Girls is led by Erika Henningsen as Cady Heron, Taylor Louderman as Regina George, Ashley Park as Gretchen Wieners, Kate Rockwell as Karen Smith, Barrett Wilbert Weed as Janis Sarkisian, Grey Henson as Damian Hubbard, Kerry Butler as Ms. Norbury, Kyle Selig as Aaron Samuels, Cheech Manohar as Kevin Gnapoor, and Rick Younger as Mr. Duvall.

The ensemble includes Stephanie Lynn Bissonnette, Tee Boyich, Collins Conley, Ben Cook, DeMarius Copes, Kevin Csolak, Devon Hadsell, Curtis Edwin Holland, Myles McHale, Chris Medlin, Brittany Nicholas, Becca Petersen, Nikhil Saboo, Jonalyn Saxer, Brendon Stimson, Kamille Upshaw, Zurin Villanueva, Gianna Yanelli, and Iain Young.

The creative team for Mean Girls includes Scott Pask (set design), Gregg Barnes (costume design), Kenneth Posner (lighting design), Brian Ronan (sound design), Finn Ross and Adam Young (video design), Josh Marquette (hair design), Milagros Medina-Cerdeira (makeup design), Mary-Mitchell Campbell (music director), John Clancy (orchestrations), Glen Kelly (dance and incidental music arrangements), Jeff Richmond and Glen Kelly (additional music arrangements), and Howard Joines (music coordinator).

After years of living with her zoologist parents in Africa, Cady Heron moves to Illinois and must find where she fits in the social hierarchy. A sweet, naive newbie, Cady quickly attracts the attention of the Plastics, a trio of popular frenemies led by the vicious and calculating Regina George. When Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
