VCUarts Theatre presents School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play By Jocelyn Bioh

When: Thu., Feb. 23, 7:30 p.m., Fri., Feb. 24, 7:30 p.m., Sat., Feb. 25, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 26, 3 p.m.

A funny and fast-paced comedy centered around schoolgirls competing for the Miss Ghana Pageant in 1986. Paulina, the reigning queen bee at the Aburi Girls’ boarding school, has a squad of minions and her sights on pageant glory…but the arrival of Ericka, a new student with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter—and Paulina's hive-minded friends. Plans are foiled, secrets are spilled, and feelings are hurt as the girls navigate high school social dynamics infused with colorism, classism, and bullying. VCUarts Theatre is delighted to have Guest Director Katrinah Carol Lewis directing this project.

Price: $15
