Dramaween takes over Route 6 Café tonight at 7.
Benefiting the Homestake Peak School and Vail Mountain School drama programs, Dramaween is a costume party fueled by light appetizers and classic rock covers from the band Rewind.
Since drama is an ultra-creative activity, organizers thought a costume party would work well as a fundraiser.
After all, any time there’s a theater performance, the actors are in costume.
The drama programs at both schools will receive the funds raised from the performances; the money will likely be used to create productions.
This year, Homestake’s winter performance is “Shrek: The Musical,” which runs from Dec. 12-15 at the school’s auditorium.
Classic rock cover band Rewind got involved through bandmate Jeff Apps: His wife, Sandy, is the director of Homestake’s theater programs.
The six-piece plays hits from artists like the Rolling Stones, Van Halen, Billy Idol, Journey, Boston, Kansas and more.
The band plays a lot of events for local nonprofits.
“The best part is being with a great group of guys in the band and making the event really fun and memorable,” Apps said.

Seatings for brunch are at 9 and 10:30 a.m. and include catered dishes from Iverson’s cookbook as well as a copy of “Ski Town Brunch.”
