Before there was “Second City,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Mean Girls” and “30 Rock,” there was Upper Darby Summer Stage where Tina Fey acted and directed. Upper Darby Summer Stage is one of the nation’s longest running and most successful Children’s Theater programs and a valuable community asset. Summer Stage was recently named one of the eight best-known summer theater programs for young performers in the nation by Backstage.com.
Writer, producer and Emmy Award-winning actress Tina Fey will appear at an event to support Upper Darby Summer Stage and kick off our 40th season! Ms. Fey will appear at an exclusive screening of the 10th anniversary of “Mean Girls.” Proceeds will support a new sound system for Upper Darby Performing Arts Center. The new sound system will be an investment of approximately $300,000. Ms. Fey wrote the screenplay and co-starred in the movie, loosely based on her years at Upper Darby High School.
- Tickets to the movie screening, as well as participation in the Question-and-Answer session after the screening are $40-100. Tickets may be purchased online. Purchase Tickets
Tickets are tax-deductible. We sincerely appreciate your support for this worthy investment to improve the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center.
The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center kicks off its 40th Summer Stage season — a program in which Fey herself acted and directed — with this fund-raiser to support the theater program on Saturday, Aug. 16.
At 7:30 p.m., the 2004 film about the social rise and fall of protagonist Cady Heron and her involvement with super-clique The Plastics, will screen on the theater’s three strategically placed projectors in order to ensure the most optimal viewing situation.
Following the movie, TV Guide Magazine Senior Writer Damian Holbrook will moderate a question and answer session with the woman of the hour.
Tickets are still available for the event and range between $40 and $100. Meet-and-greet tickets have since sold out.
