Coffee House Reflection


On Thursday, Sept. 3, SHS’s theater put on their bi-annual Coffee House, a student run talent show they’ve done twice a year since 2007. As fall Coffee House came and went, students of all grades reflected on their experience with Coffee House, whether it was their first or last.

For senior Haley Kibby, it was her second experience with Coffee House.

“I think performing in Coffee House is just as fun as watching it,” Kibby said.

For sophomore Zachary Smith, he wasn’t as nervous to perform because of his experiences with choir in the past.

“It’s a little nerve wracking [on stage], but it wasn’t as bad when you get into it,” Smith said. “The atmosphere was enlightening.”

Senior Mary Catherine Dickinson was a little more on the nervous side for her first time performing in Coffee House. She worried that she didn’t have her song ready. Overall, though, she thought the experience was very fun.

SHS had a variety of acts this year including a laser light show by Steven Osburn that combined a collection of colorful lights and several different remixes of popular tunes, wearing a Darth Vader mask the entire time, following Coffee House’s theme of “movies.”

All proceeds, including the tips from waitresses, go into funding the theater here at SHS, making productions like the upcoming musical, Grease, possible.
