Facebook Live is going to get mean on Oct. 3.

Paramount Pictures feature film Mean Girls was released 15 years ago, and Oct. 3 is Mean Girls Day thanks to one of the film’s iconic lines, “On Oct. 3, he asked me what day it was.”

Award-winning Broadway musical comedy Mean Girls is teaming up with Paramount and Facebook to hold a live viewing party of the film on Facebook Live, which will be hosted by Tina Fey, who wrote the screenplay, and Fey’s friend Busy Philipps, a Mean Girls superfan.

The livestream will begin at 8 p.m. ET Oct. 3 from New York, on the Mean Girls on Broadway Facebook page, and Fey and Philipps will participate before, during and after, playing trivia, answering fans’ questions and giving away prizes including tickets to see the Broadway show.

At the end of the Facebook Live event, one lucky winner will receive a grand prize, sponsored by American Airlines, Moxy Times Square, MAC Cosmetics, Alice + Olivia, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Drybar, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, RXBar and Haswell Greens.

The Mean Girls musical is currently playing at the August Wilson Theatre. It is being produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman and Paramount.
