Janis Sarkasian from Mean Girls the Musical

Janis Sarkasian is a character in the Mean Girls musical. Similar to the movie, she is Damian's best friend who marches to the beat of her own drum. Artsy and rebellious, she doesn't care what anyone thinks about her. This sentiment is the main point of her song, "I'd Rather Be Me." When Cady Heron arrives as the new student, Janis and Damian take her under their wing to seek vengeance on Regina George. Janis warns Cady not to be deceived by Regina's niceness, as per her own experience. The only changes from the movie include the last name (Ian to Sarkasian) as well as her sexuality. Barett Wilbert Weed, who originated the role on Broadway, has confirmed that in her portrayal, Janis is a lesbian. This costume guide features a denim jacket to use as a base. Follow this tutorial,  where Ellis Claire Perlman will teach you how to paint and decorate your jacket to make it stage accurate. To achieve her punk makeup look, follow this tutorial by popular musical theater Youtuber Katherine Steele.
