About

Fearlessly funny.
Beauty, ambition and biting comedy combine in this recent off-Broadway hit! Paulina is the reigning Queen Bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school. She’s got the trendiest clothes and the command of her loyal hive of friends. At the start of the 1986 school year, she sets her sights on the annual Miss Universe pageant. But when new girl Ericka transfers from America in the middle of the year, Paulina’s carefully controlled world is thrown into chaos. The beautiful and charming Ericka catches the attention of the pageant recruiter and topples the school’s social order in the process. Called “ferociously entertaining” by The Hollywood Reporter, School Girls fearlessly explores the universal challenges of teenage girlhood and all the drama that comes with it.
