TROY — Some “mean girls” are leading the way to some nice performances at Troy High School this weekend.

The Troy Music Department will present its spring musical, “Mean Girls: The High School Version,” on March 1, 2, and 3 in the Troy High School auditorium.

“These students have been working so hard for the past ten weeks,” said musical director Erik Strope. “This is one of the most difficult musicals we’ve put on in terms of set pieces and transitions, and the kids have responded. We are incredibly proud of the talented students we’ve had and the work they’ve put in, and we can’t wait to show that off to the community.”

The March 1 and 2 shows will both begin at 7 p.m. The March 3 show will take place at 2 p.m. The final show will also feature an American Sign Language interpreter for the hearing impaired.

Tickets are $10 for reserved seats and $8 for general admission. Tickets may be purchased in the Troy High School main office during school hours using cash or a check. Tickets can also be purchased using a credit card through the website
