December Coffeehouse Cancelled


Jayla Lowery, Staff Writer and Breaking News Coordinator

Jesuit’s annual Christmas-themed Coffeehouse has been canceled for this year. Senior Danny Murphy made the call on Tuesday and it was announced to the school during 6th period announcements.

The decision was made due to scheduling conflicts and a lack of space. Placement testing occurs this Friday until 6:30 in the Gedrose Student center and the Black Box will be unavailable due to rehearsals for the Freshman Ensemble.

“In short, Jesuit over-scheduled itself,” Murphy said.

“Additionally, several members of Coffeehouse committee are involved in the production of Freshman Ensemble, meaning it would have been impossible for them to help us set up.”

The Christmas Coffeehouse takes place on the first Friday of every December due to the December Co-ed Encounter and the start of winter break. Therefore, the next opportunity for a coffeehouse won’t be until March, right before spring break.

Students who signed up to perform Friday will be given priority to perform in the next two Coffeehouses.

The next Coffeehouse will be on the last Friday before Spring Break.
