Christmas Coffeehouse brings spirit of the season

by Carrie Caldwell
It is that time of year again when bells are ringing, carolers are singing — and, of course, time for Christmas Coffeehouse. This Friday night, the Vines Center will be opening its doors for perhaps the most anticipated event of the semester.

The Student Life staff hosts a themed Coffeehouse each semester, which gives students at Liberty a chance to showcase their talents in front the entire student body.

Hosts Cody Davenport and Zach Smith, along with 20 other talent-filled performances, will mark the ending of the semester with something students can talk about over the break.

Tryouts for Christmas Coffee-house were held early in November. Davenport said, “We had a lot of good auditions this year — so many that we had to turn a lot away.”

There will be a couple of Coffee-house returnees. The famed LUPD videos will not be among them,  but several other comical videos are promised in its place. “There is a lot of diversity this year — everything from slow classic Christmas to jazz and rock,” says Davenport. “ We apologize — this year, there will be no Meredith Andrews or Jake Holman.”

So what can students expect for this year’s Coffeehouse? Amazing talent, games, giveaways, great decorations, food and an auditorium full of Christmas spirit. You can even expect to see the big man in the red suit. “Coffeehouse is always so much fun, I am really excited to see what’s in store for this year’s,” said Jennifer Smith.

Christmas Coffeehouse is this Friday night. Doors open at 11 p.m. and the show starts at 11:30 p.m. Tickets are being sold all this week in the Dining Hall and at the Student Life Office.

Tickets are $2 each or $40 for a table on the floor that seats eight people — however, the tables were sold out within two days of them becoming available. Be sure to get your tickets soon, because prices will go up at the door. For more information, call the Student Life Office at 592-3148.
