Broadway's musical comedy Mean Girls has announced plans to celebrate Mean Girls Day (October 3) with a free fan performance on Wednesday, October 3 at 7pm, featuring special appearances by members of the Mean Girls creative team.

Tickets to the fan performance can be won by entering a special digital lottery, which is now open here. The digital lottery closes at 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, August 7. Winners will be notified of their status beginning Wednesday, August 8 and must claim their tickets online within 24 hours. Detailed ticket pick-up information will be sent to all winners via email, and all entrants will be notified of their status by Friday, August 10. Tickets are limited to one entry per person and two tickets per winner.

Mean Girls features a book by nine-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey based on her screenplay for the film, music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by two-time Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin. Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs.

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on the Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

The cast 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 Mrs. Heron, Ms. Norbury, and Mrs. George; Kyle Selig as Aaron Samuels; Cheech Manohar as Kevin Gnapoor; and Rick Younger as Mr. Duvall.
