MSD Drama Club hosts Winter Coffee House

Before the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had a week of testing for their midterms, the MSD Drama Club held a special fundraiser in order to boost the funds of their production. The club hosted a Coffee House in room 710, which is also the MSD Drama room on Dec 15 at 5:00p.m.

Due to the Coffee House being held around the winter time, the event had an theme of a Christmas cabin, with candles, Christmas lights, small Christmas trees and a campfire video playing on Herzfeld’s Promethean board.

There were string lights on the ceiling, which were also above a makeshift stage. The stage had a small red curtain with more lights and chairs and couches were formed in an arch to focus the attention on those performing.

The Coffee House was a fundraiser for costumes, steps, props and other necessities for the Drama Club’s upcoming musical “Mean Girls.” The Coffee House assists the “Mean Girls” production cost, as theater productions usually cost from $15,000 to $25,000 to produce, according to Drama teacher Melody Herzfeld.

The fundraiser for Drama Club was able to raise around $300, and the funds will be contributed to their production. The Coffee House made this possible due to the amount of students there, which usually brings around 20 to 30 students.

“By holding Coffee House we get to raise money for our productions,” junior Alex Carr said. “We also make a fun environment and bonding experiences for Drama Club.”

With a large production like “Mean Girls” coming around the corner for Drama Club, they must rely on teamwork and bonding so the production of the musical and the musical itself can run smoothly. Coffee House was treated not just as a fundraiser, but a friendship building experience.

“Coffee House is kind of a ‘friend-raiser’ event,” Drama teacher Melody Herzfeld said.“We come out to have a themed open mic night, and we can all dress up and perform to appreciate each other.”

Drama Club will premiere “Mean Girls” on Wednesday, March 6, and will run till March 9. The runtime will soon be determined. Tickets sale dates will come out on a later date.
