Hershey Theatre Celebrates Mean Girls Day October 3

The Hit-Musical Takes the Stage in Hershey One Week from Today

On October 3, he asked me what day it was. It's Mean Girls Day (yes, it's a real thing!)

Today, October 3, is celebrated as Mean Girls Day each year. The tradition was started by fans of the 2004 cult-classic, honoring an iconic scene from the film. This date also serves as a countdown for those looking forward to the opening night of the musical, as there is exactly ONE WEEK until the curtain goes up at Hershey Theatre. Put on your best pink and get ready for eight can't-miss performances of MEAN GIRLS in The Sweetest Place On Earth on Oct. 10-15, 2023.

Join the Celebration

What better way to celebrate the occasion than with a special ticket offer? Through 11:59 PM on Oct.3, show-goers interested in seeing the musical can snag $10.03 off select tickets to the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday performances of MEAN GIRLS at Hershey Theatre using code FETCH. 

Houlihan's in downtown Hershey is also getting in on the excitement of the “GROOLEST day of the year” with a special Fetch flight featuring the Pink Elephant, Pom Tini and Guava-tini martinis. The flight is available from October 3-15 for $14.


Direct from Broadway, MEAN GIRLS is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), composer Jeff Richmond (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), lyricist Nell Benjamin (“Legally Blonde”) and director Casey Nicholaw (“The Book of Mormon”). 

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to 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. 

New York Magazine cheers, “MEAN GIRLS delivers with immense energy, a wicked sense of humor and joyful inside-jokery.” USA Today says, “We’ll let you in on a little secret, because we’re such good friends: GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!”


Hershey Theatre opened in September 1933. It has established itself as the area’s premier performing arts center, presenting the finest in touring Broadway shows, classical music and world-renowned entertainers.
