“On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was” – yes, it’s October 3rd and that means it’s “Mean Girls Day!” In honor of the 15th anniversary of the film, the award-winning hit Broadway musical comedy Mean Girls and Paramount Pictures will host the ultimate film viewing party on Facebook.
The one-time-only live event 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 livestream to talk all things Mean Girls – playing trivia, answering fan questions and giving away “fetch” prizes including tickets to see the show on Broadway. This special event will culminate in the announcement of a grand prize for one lucky winner, sponsored by American Airlines, MAC Cosmetics, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, Alice + Olivia, RXBAR, and 305 Fitness.
