Tina Fey to screen 'Mean Girls' in Upper Darby

About a decade ago, Tina Fey released Mean Girls-a film that ultimately came to define the teenage experience for a generation, thanks mainly to the Upper Darby High School-influenced antics shown on screen. Now, Fey returns to Delco for the film's tenth anniversary with a special screening and Q&A session.

About a decade ago, Tina Fey released Mean Girls—a film that ultimately came to define the teenage experience for a generation, thanks mainly to the Upper Darby High School-influenced antics shown on screen. Now, Fey returns to Delco for the film’s tenth anniversary with a special screening and Q&A session. 

The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center will host Fey’s Mean Girls screening August 16, with proceeds from the event going to purchase the center a new sound system at the cost of around $300,000. Tickets for the main event run $40 to $100, with passes for an additional meet and greet session having already sold out since going on sale yesterday. 

As PAC marketing director Lauren Yacina told Mainline Media News:

A meet and greet is also scheduled for the event, but tickets sold out within 10 minutes after going on sale Monday morning according to the PAC marketing director, Lauren Yacina. 

“It’s sad to have people try to call and get the (meet and greet) tickets,” said Lauren Yacina, “but Tina’s camp said we cannot sell more than 100 tickets for it.” Yacina added that tickets are on sale for all 1,600 seats in the PAC.

Grab tickets for the Q&A and screening here. But be sure to hurry—this one’s just too fetch to pass up.
