HOMESTAKE PEAK SCHOOL
ABOUT HPS DRAMA
Homestake Peak School’s Drama Club includes students that attend HPS from 3rd grade through 8th grade. In year’s past, the drama club would perform in the Fall (upper school) and in the Spring (lower school). The 2018-2019 school year combined the performance into one all school (3rd-8th), mega production – The Lion King – and it was a HUGE success. It was such a success, that the school had over 75 students audition for the 2019-2020 production of Shrek Jr., The Musical, which was also a huge success. Due to the pandemic, HPS Drama Club, once again split the school peformances in two, in 2020-2021 where the lower school delivered the best rendition of 101 Dalmatians Jr., while the upper school made the Vail Valley Hills come alive with The Sound of Music.
This year will be no different with two incredible performances. Upper school’s performance will be High School Musical, One Act Edition (Grades 6-8) and Lower school’s performance will be Disney’s Frozen Jr. (Grades 3-5)

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! “
