About Mean Girls: High School Version

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 and her friends devise a "Revenge Party" to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

Adapted from Fey's hit 2004 film, Mean Girls was nominated for a staggering 12 Tony Awards.  This queen-bee took Broadway by storm and has joined the musical in-crowd. (from www.MTIShows.com)

Palos Verdes Peninsula High School Drama Department


Peninsula Drama is committed to providing a comprehensive and varied program while raising the Drama Department's profile on the PVPHS campus and in our community. Any student can find their home here, whether they are involved in just our classes, getting on stage in productions, performing with our improv team or finding their voice working backstage on tech crew. 

Between productions, the Drama Club and Thespian Honors Society, our students have the opportunity to continue to grow and succeed. Coupled with Mr Cohen's experience performing with Comedy Sportz Los Angeles, and his experience working as a theater technician, designer and his background in film production students are afforded opportunities to get a wide-range of experience and get involved with Peninsula Drama in a variety of ways. All of this helps our students develop not only as performers and technicians, but also developing peripheral skills that open up many opportunities for college, scholarships and the professional world.
