Bronx Science’s Spring Production of Mean Girls was a Smashing Success

Incredible singing, tap dancing, and sets took the stage on three nights of Mean Girls.
In this iconic scene with Karen (Alianna Ribadeneira ’25), Cady, and Gretchen (Elisa Chang ’24), Cady kicks Regina (Jordana Franklin ’25) out of their lunch group.

For this year’s Spring Musical on Wednesday, May 22nd through Friday, May 24th, 2024, the Bronx Science Drama department took on Mean Girls. They brought to it intelligent casting, lively dancing numbers, detailed and thoughtful sets, and incredible acting and singing. Big audiences gathered for three nights to watch Cady become a Mean Girl, Janis and Damien betrayed, Regina George dethroned, and a Burn Book discovered. The numbers surprised us with tap dancing, the sets with a scarily accurate imitation of a high school bathroom, and the acting and singing with some intimate, sad, and heartwarming moments.

About the Contributors
Georgie Barth, Staff Reporter
Georgie Barth is a Spotlight Editor for ‘The Science Survey.’ Journalism’s ability to convey truth and give voice to the issues all around us brought her to the newspaper. She is fascinated by the issues so often overlooked in favor of domestic and international issues. In school, Georgie imagines how the school she loves can be even better, and outside of school, she turns her eyes to local politics. While it’s hard to choose, some of her favorite books are Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, and Strangers to Ourselves by Rachel Aviv. Georgie loves to spend her free time taking walks through her neighborhood because she loves looking at the old buildings.
Nicole Zhou, Staff Reporter
Nicole Zhou is the Editor-in-Chief for ‘The Observatory' yearbook and a Staff Reporter for 'The Science Survey' newspaper. This is her third year revising news stories, spirited spotlights, and thought-provoking editorials. Nicole enjoys journalistic writing because she feels unlimited in the topics she chooses to report on; anything can be important if it is written about with importance. It is the journalist’s role to kindle interest whether they report on a small village town in Anchang or on more pressing issues. Journalistic photographs are equally important, serving as the 'garnish to a well-prepared meal.' They supplement emotions that an article may otherwise miss. Outside of the classroom, Nicole enjoys afternoon strolls, window-shopping with her family, and exploring new restaurants. She dreams of going on a cross country expedition throughout Asia. In college, she plans on studying medicine and business, but she will continue to write for her school’s newspaper.
