MEAN GIRLS Celebrates October 3rd With a Movie Viewing Party
"On October 3rd he asked me what day it was..."
And thus, Mean Girls day was born!
In honor of the 15th anniversary of the film, the award-winning hit Broadway musical comedy Mean Girls is partnering with Paramount Pictures and Facebook to host the ultimate film viewing party on Facebook Live.
The one-time-only Facebook Live event special will be co-hosted by writer Tina Fey and her friend (and Mean Girls superfan) Busy Philipps, with the livestream beginning at 8:00 PM ET on Thursday, October 3rd from New York City. Tina and Busy will participate before, during and after the Facebook Live to talk all things Mean Girls - playing trivia, answering fan questions and giving away "fetch" prizes including tickets to see the show on Broadway. The Facebook Live will culminate in the announcement of a grand prize for one lucky winner, sponsored by American Airlines, Moxy Times Square, MAC Cosmetics, Alice + Olivia, Dylan's Candy Bar, Drybar, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, RXBAR, and Haswell Greens.
Mean Girls is available now in an anniversary Blu-ray™ featuring collectible pink packaging, deleted scenes, bloopers, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and more.
Produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman, and Paramount Pictures, the Mean Girls Broadway musical is currently playing at the August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd Street). Mean Girls is also now playing a US National Tour.
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 winnerCasey Nicholaw directs and choreographs.
