Coffee House steamed off flair and brilliance, as North Point High School students showcased their talents.

On February 8, 9, and 10th, the North Point Theatre presented “Just Brew It,” the annual Coffee House talent show. The talents performed on the cafeteria stage starting at 7 to 9pm, with brief comedic intermissions from the host.

A total of over 30 groups and students performed and displayed their excellence in areas such as spoken word, standup comedy, and instrumental sound. The crowd was interactive and supportive of these who took the stage, helping to create a more comfortable and light-hearted atmosphere. 12th grader, Ashlie Dawkins said Coffeehouse was not only “heartwarming,” but “a nice way to spend a Saturday.”

The sponsoring Theatre group at North Point truly did their best at embodying the aura of an actual coffee house. A variety of foods and drinks ranging from black tea to cherry cheesecake were offered with a generous smile. The waiters that were circulating did a fine job at keeping the guests satisfied.

Of course, the main spectacles were the talented students of North Point High School. The artistry that was displayed, was out of this world! A popular group who go by the name of “Just Musicians” ended the night with the crowd on their feet. This was their second time at Coffee House as performers, and it was never the less a showstopper. Lead Guitarist, senior Ross Fields, reflects on the audience reaction as “amazing” and the energy being “definitely there on and off stage.” “Just Musicians” is a group of 6 North Point students: seniors Fields, Brianna Sibley, Addy Hebou, and Trent Tyer; and juniors Adolf (AJ) Accad and Sascha Barnes. This was their second time at Coffee House as performers. The band played songs ranging from pop to contemporary, the crowd favorite being “Too Good At Goodbyes” by artist Sam Smith. The instrumentals were smooth and harmonized, grabbing the crowd by their hearts. They were simply one of many performances that were truly fascinating and a pleasure to watch.
