Casting is now set for the world premiere of the Broadway-bound Mean Girls musical, which begins performances October 31 at Washington, D.C's National Theatre.
Taylor Louderman (currently in Kinky Boots on Broadway) will take on the role of queen bee Regina George, with Ashley Park (The King and I) and Kate Rockwell (Bring It On) as her fellow "Plastics" Gretchen Wieners and Karen Smith, respectively. Erika Henningsen, who made her Broadway debut as the youngest Fantine in Les Misérables history in the recent revival, will play the central role of Cady Heron.

The musical, featuring a book by Emmy winner Tina Fey (who wrote the screenplay for and appeared in the original 2004 film), music by her husband Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by Tony nominee Nell Benjamin, will run through December 3 at the D.C. venue. Tony winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs. A Broadway bow is expected in 2018, though no official dates have been announced.
