“What is so awesome about Caesar? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar. Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, and people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody? We should totally just stab Caesar!”
-Anonymous, BFF to a Prom queen candidate
You are cordial invited to the Prom on John Hughes High.
Towards Prom we need to find a worthy winner of the tiara. This year we have changed the rules, so all of you have the possibility to change from an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan.
Queen Bees is a high school-comedy in which you play fifteen 17-year old teenage girls . They are all members of the five most important cliques, and they all want someone from their group to be crowned prom queen. It’s going to be a struggle full of laughter, tears and rumors. If you can’t get the tiara, then it’s even more important who doesn’t get it.
In Queen Bees you as a player is going to have fun, while the characters tries to out-manoeuvre each other with rumors. All players start with three roles, and in the end each player will only have one left, and there can only be one Prom queen who wears the tiara.
There is both room for a story where the mean girl wins, the classical high school comedy story and even the underdog story, where the most unlikely wins. No matter what the players decide Queen Bees is all about big egos, intrigue, friendship and teenage drama for the roles, while its fun and entertaining for the players. For the roles its extremely serious, but there is room for the players to laugh at the roles short comings and faith.
