Coffeehouse:
Music, Poetry, Theatre, Stand-up Comedy & Puppets!

GWCS Annual CoffeeHouse
December 11, 2015
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The GWCS Music Club was excited to host it’s first Coffeehouse of the 2015- 2016 school year - a terrific collaborative effort by GWCS students, teachers, Music Club and SGA. 

Audience members were treated to an evening of music, theatre, poetry, stand-up comedy, and puppet creativity! Members of the Music Club, along with advisor Mr. Andrews Bashan, performed a wide variety of songs, with members switching it up to show their talents on a variety of instruments and vocals.

Interspersed throughout the music, Mr. Periera performed poetry readings of three of his excellent original works. Mr. Goldie’s selected reading from his book Faith instilled humorous holiday spirit in everyone.  Emily Sullivan led a group of Coyotes in what can only be called "avant garde puppet rap about a Canadian children's show."  Theater Class delivered an unforgettable performance of the one-act comedy-drama Variations on the Death of Trotsky.  Other GWCS students, who auditioned for spots in the show, impressed the audience with their comical theatrical performances.  (See photos below.)

Mr. Andrews Bashan gets an A+ for expertly integrating all of the elements of live theatre into an entertaining and uniquely GWCS showcase. And, of course, Coffeehouse would not have been possible without the support of the SGA, whose members helped set up, clean up, sell tickets and refreshments, and run things behind the scenes.
