COFFEE HOUSE AUDITIONS...

Do you sing? Juggle? Tell jokes? Tell weird stories that go nowhere (Mr. Goldie, I'm looking at you)? Make sick beats? Craft performance art installations with lots of uncomfortable staring? Are you in a band? Do you play an instrument?

If you can kinda say yes to ANY of the above, then GWCS's nearly annual coffee house event is for you! 

Simply put, coffee house is a night packed with extravagant and creative performances by you, set in the laid back atmosphere of a coffee house. Yes there will be coffee for the audience, and biscotti or cookies I imagine. There will be lots of people snapping their fingers and saying things like, "dig," and "this is coolsville."

If you would like to perform at coffee house, here's what you need to do:

  • Prepare a performance 3 - 5 minutes in length.
  • Sign up to audition your performance on the signup sheet found on Mr. AB's door.
  • Audition on Tuesday, December 1st!
  • Coffee House is Friday, December 11th from 7pm - 9pm

Volunteer:  If you would like to participate in coffee house, but you don't want to perform, there's still tons of set-up, backstage, equipment prep and other stuff to do.  Email Mr. AB expressing your interest and watch for forthcoming information.
