Join us for a Day of Performing Arts, Saturday, November 7th
After being dazzled at the Homeshow by the award winning Homestead Marching Band and Colorguard, the Equestriettes, and Cheerleaders, stay awhile and enjoy a yummy pasta dinner, then proceed to the auditorium to take in a play!
Dinner will be served in the Small Gym at 5:30 pm. The PRE-ORDER price is $12 per person, which gets you a delicious dinner of pasta, salad, dessert, and beverage.
Student Homeshow performers or who will perform in the evening’s play will get $2 off dinner!!
Entertainment will be provided by our fantastic Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Choir, and Chamber Orchestra!
After dinner, proceed to the auditorium to watch “Wild Oats” by James McLure, a play presented by the Homestead Drama Department. The show starts at 7:30 pm. Tickets at the door are $5 with ASB Card, $7 general admission.
OR… purchase a dinner/play ticket for $17 giving you a great meal and entertainment before strolling over to the auditorium for the play.
Can’t stay for dinner? No problem, we offer take out! Why go home to cook and clean when you can have a warm meal ready when you hit the door?

Home Show Coming Up! Volunteers Needed!
It is time to plan this year’s Home Show on Saturday November 7 in Homestead’s large gym. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite families, friends, and supporters to come and watch an indoor version of our show and help raise money for our music programs ($5 per person or $15 per family). In addition to the Mighty Mustang Marching Band, the one hour show from 4 to 5pm will feature Homestead’s highly acclaimed Equestriettes Dance Team and Cheerleaders.
Refreshments will be served in the Quad after the show. We need volunteers to help with the following: donating refreshments for the reception, setting up and cleaning up, selling tickets, and directing traffic in the parking lots. If you can help, please email Cathy Lu at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rene Watkins at email@example.com as soon as possible.
After the home show and reception, there will a pasta dinner fundraiser in the HHS small gym starting at 5:30pm. The dinner will feature performances by our Jazz Band, Jazz Choir, and Chamber Orchestra. Hope to see you all!
