Open up that Burn Book losers, there's a whole new crop of Plastics in town.

The cast of the highly-anticipated Mean Girls musical has finally been announced, which means we're one step closer to the Broadway-bound production's October 31 debut in Washington, D.C.

Variety reports that Erika Henningsen, who recently appeared in the Broadway revival of "Les Miserables," has signed on to play Cady Heron, the character made famous by Lindsay Lohan back in 2004. Kerry Butler, who earned a Tony nod for her part in "Xanadu," will take on the role of Ms. Norbury, the calculus teacher played by Tina Fey in the film, while Taylor Louderman, of "Kinky Boots" fame, is set to assume the role of queen bee, Regina George.
