ABOUT HPS DRAMA
HPS Drama has a long running tradition of inspired musicals starting as far back as when we were Meadow Mountain. We are so fortunate to have so much talent in this small valley and in our Elementary/ Middle School. Every year our committee meets to decide on the musical we will perform for the next year. We are so lucky to have such amazing parent & grandparent volunteers to make these shows a success. We have had challenges with COVID but through all of it we persevered. We have performed such musicals as Jungle Book and Little Mermaid to Lion King, Shrek, Sound Of Music, High School Musical, Frozen and so many more.
The Drama program is very special to the kids at HPS and this year will be another epic year with a fall performance with both the lower and upper schools combined to perform The Wizard of Oz.
HPS Drama Club Mission & Vision
We are crew, not passengers. We think, care and act in service of others.
We embrace the Outward Bound philosophy which was passed down to us by Kurt Hahn, an extraordinary educator and philosopher who used the expression “We are crew, not passengers” to capture the ideal participant role required of each of us. He used the metaphor of a ship’s community working toward a common goal, with each person playing an important role.
From Our Principal
” Drama has always had a special place in my heart as the stage was a place that allowed me to express my own creativity and find a connection with others. I was excited to hear about the HPS Drama program and after witnessing last year’s production, it did not disappoint. In fact, the quality and craftsmanship on display was spectacular. The teamwork of “big kids” working with “little kids” together was a unifying event that really brought our full school community together. It takes a lot of volunteers to produce such a high-quality production and we are grateful for any help. HPS can hardly wait to see what this year’s production will bring and it will be an event that folks will not want to miss. See you at the show! “
