Need a theatrical pick-me-up? Then I’d advise seeing “Shrek the Musical,” Broadway’s version of the DreamWorks film “Shrek” from 2001, and William Steig’s book “Shrek!” published in 1990. I know what you’re thinking — it’s silly, it’s cheesy, it’s just for kids. It is those things, but the Homestead High School production is also laugh-out-loud … More Shrek the Musical: a party on stage

Ludwig’s jokey script is written like an action film: brief scenes provide exposition (including a montague recap to start Act II) and character … More The Three Musketeers Review
Who do you play? I play Sabine d’Artagnan (yeah I know stupid last name. But imagine being named ‘d’Arty d’Artagnan.’) What’s challenging about bringing this script to life? Probably finding the funny moments in the play. The play is written in subtle and obvious humor, and bringing out a different personality in my character has … More Meet the Artist – Maisie Allen
My name is Maisie Allen, and I am a freshman here at Homestead. In the production Beauty and the Beast I am in the ensemble, specifically the drunken beggar, swaying across the stage and “accidentally” singing the girl parts.

When Homestead High School theatre Director Amelia Figg-Franzoi was asked “Why Robin Hood?” she smiled lightly and spoke, “I know, crazy right? It’s a show all about men. Or at least traditionally. Last year I fell in love with a version of Robin Hood called The Heart of Robin Hood, but I knew I could never do … More Robin Hood Review!
