Drama Club

Do you enjoy theatre?  Acting, costumes, make-up or working with tools?  Come join Drama Club.

It’s an after school club run by students, for students that works in tandem with the Theatre Education Department.  This past year we have had fun activities such as scavenger hunts, parties to raise money for trips and more.  In the past, we have travelled down to Chicago for a day to see a Broadway in Chicago show.  We also plan events such as “Beatles Night” with music and food, trips to see local productions, and workshops where professionals come in to talk about the life of Theatre.

Students involved in Drama Club can also audition for the after- school plays.  We have a Fall and Spring play and a Winter musical which is put on by the whole Fine Arts Department.

Drama Club is the student run after school club that supports the Drama Productions here at Homestead High School by allowing students the opportunity to be involved in…

Costumes:

During practice for the shows, Costume crew meets Mondays and Wednesday’s after school to create and find the costumes for the play at that time.  Normally 3-5 on these days you can learn how to sew and be a “Run crew” dresser or help make the costumes!  Learn how to measure an actor, use a sewing machine and have lots of fun.

Make-up:

This crew meets the week before the show opens and creates the make-up looks for each actor in the play.  Learn how to make a character look older or young, make bloody gashes or an interesting fantasy design.  Using Ben Nye make-up you design the looks, learn to mix colors and help actors before the show.

Ushering:

A nice way to see the show for free!  Sell tickets and hand out programs before the show, help people find seats and enjoy watching the show.

Stagecrew:

Play on the technical side of theatre, learn how to build the set, paint, hang lights, and have fun every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6-9 and Saturday from 1-4.
