Wellesley High School senior Cypress Smith, who made a splash as Belle in WHS’s Beauty and the Beast last fall, this Friday (May 12 at 7pm) presents music and performing arts showcase called A Better Coffeehouse at Wellesley High’s Little Theater.
Smith is orchestrating the event for her senior project as a fundraiser for Wellesley A Better Chance, the focus of which is providing academically talented and promising young women of color from underserved communities A Better Chance through enrollment at Wellesley High School and participation in a residential program. Smith will sing at the coffeehouse, while other students will present poetry, dance, show off art and play music (We’re told Smith later in the night will head over to Wellesley ABC’s Reach for the Stars fundraiser to sing with the band.)
Tickets for the coffeehouse are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and are available at the door. It would help with planning if you could RSVP here if attending.
