Pop culture staple “Mean Girls” is moving beyond the small screen and onto a live stage at the Des Moines Civic Center, making its debut at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct.15. 

The 2004 film starring Lindsay Lohan has become a classic for every teenage girl trying to navigate high school life or transitioning to a new school from another country or state.

It ranked No. 1 at the box office and grossed $24.4 million in its opening weekend. Fans of the film will relive the story of teenage Cady Heron (played by Erika Henningsen), who grew up in Africa with her research zoologist parents. Heron later on transitions as a teenager to the suburbs of Illinois and experiences public school life.
