School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play

School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play

Goodman Theatre

Around 80 minutes with no intermission

School is back in session! This biting and buoyant comedy was playing to packed houses when our stages went dark—and you won’t want to miss its triumphant return.

As the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school sets her sights on the Miss Universe pageant, a new student unexpectedly changes the game. This “nasty-teen comedy, wonderfully refreshed and deepened” (The New York Times) spotlights the universal similarities—and glaring differences—of teenage girls around the globe.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Please note: In an effort to seat parties together and provide space between our guests, all tickets are available in groupings of 1, 2, 3 or 4 seats only. Learn more at

Your seat(s) will be assigned to you by the theater box office no sooner than one hour before showtime. 

Regardless of vaccine status, patrons will be required to wear face coverings at all times and in all areas of Goodman Theatre, including while seated during the performance.
