Bob Jones Theatre rehearses with ‘Mean Girls’ Broadway cast at VBC

MADISON – Bob Jones Theatre’s actors will animate the sassy characters in “Mean Girls” for Madison’s 2024 Spring Musical. Every line they state and every dance move they make will have influence from their workshop with the Broadway cast.

“I’m so grateful for the Broadway Theatre League (or BTL) of Huntsville,” Mary Davis said. Davis teaches drama at Bob Jones and is the Musical Director.

While BTL was presenting “Mean Girls” at the Von Braun Center, an education grant allowed 20 cast members from Bob Jones’ production of “Mean Girls” (High School Version) to rehearse in a workshop with two members of the professional cast on Dec. 16.

“It was so much fun!! After the workshop, we all got to watch the matinee performance, along with 10 more students. It was ‘So Fetch,’” Davis said, using vernacular of the musical.

Davis described Broadway Theatre League’s outreach with the education grant as “an amazing opportunity.” “Our ‘Mean Girls’ cast members had so much fun with the workshop.”

“Please make plans to see Bob Jones perform ‘Mean Girls’ (High School Version) in April. Show dates are April 11- 20, 2024. More information coming in January,” Davis said.

Principal actors in Bob Jones’ production of “Mean Girls” are Canaan Mayo (Cady), Teagan Leo (Regina), Renae Graves (Janis), Liam Robertson and Jaxon McClanathan (Damian), Sarah Pierce (Gretchen), Cypress Bryce (Karen), Drayton Walker (Aaron), Carson Cartwright (Kevin G.), Rian Edwards (Mrs. Norbury), Elizabeth Booth (Mrs. George) and Evan Willis (Mr. Duvall). In addition, Robertson, Pierce, Walker and Cartwright will perform as featured dancers.

In 2005, Broadway Theatre League founded its Student Outreach Program to enrich local students’ educational experiences through theatre. To-date, the program has served more than 110,000 students.

The Student Outreach Program has two major areas:

* Free school and community shows — Like the production of “Mr. B’s Underwater Bubble Show” that entertained approximately 3,500 elementary school students in the Tennessee Valley and educated them about the ocean, bubbles, math, dance and storytelling through the magic of theater.

* Free workshops for local high schools – For example, Bob Jones Theatre’s musical dance workshop with national touring cast members of “Mean Girls.” Students learned one of the show’s dance numbers. Bob Jones students received a ticket to the touring show. Earlier in 2023, another high school group participated in a workshop with cast members of the touring production of “Beetlejuice.”

Broadway Theatre League’s office address is 700 Monroe St., Suite 410 in Huntsville; office hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 256-518-6155, email info@broadwaytheatreleague.org or visit broadwaytheatreleague.org.
