Monster Mash Coffee House
Support the Class of 2013 and the first Coffee House of the year, Friday 26th October at 7.00 p.m.
Many moons ago there was a popular dance called the Mashed Potato in which dancers slipped, slid, and ground their feet as if they were making mashed potatoes. Equally popular was a Halloween-themed song about the dance called “The Monster Mash.” In the song, a creepy, Boris Karloff-type voice sings about dancers doing the Monster Mash, and punctuates the line by gleefully noting that “…it was a graveyard smash.”
Well, our 8th Grade class has probably never heard of the dance called Monster Mash, and they probably don’t know who Boris Karloff was either, but their upcoming coffee house is going to be a graveyard smash!
The 8th Grade’s coffee house offers a great opportunity for students and grown-ups to showcase their talents in song, poetry, dance, stand-up comedy—you name it. Students in grades 4 through 8 are welcome to perform. Sign up in advance on the 8th Grade’s bulletin board or submit your funniest joke by putting a written version in the joke envelope. What’s a Monster Mash Coffee House without costumes?! Dress in your favorite Halloween costume and become eligible for one or more prizes to be awarded in the costume contest. Games, coffee, tea and snacks for purchase will round out the evening.
The festivities begin at 7 p.m. this Friday, October 26th. Admission is $3 per person, and all are welcome. Bring your friends and family for a night of fun. And don’t forget Uncle Fester! Thanks for supporting the Class of 2013
