Upper Darby center to show flick and host its creator.

Posted: August 16, 2014

Help kick off the 40th season of the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the teen flick Mean Girls with Emmy award-winner Tina Fey in person. Screening begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Fey, who graduated from Upper Darby High School in 1988, wrote the screenplay and starred in Mean Girls, loosely based on her experience as a student. She was also an active participant in the school's Summer Stage program. The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Fey.

Summer Stage is one of the longest-running children's theater programs in the nation. Proceeds from the screening will help the center obtain a new sound system and support the Summer Stage program.
