We will be watching Coffee Shop. “Coffee Shop” is the story of Donavan Turner, a smart, independent, twenty-something woman looking for just the right blend of happiness in her life. She owns a hip neighborhood coffee shop in a quaint, scenic beach town and her specialty is matching people to their perfect, new brew. While she’s been less than successful fixing her love life, Donavan enjoys her work and has the robust support of her sister Becky, Becky’s boyfriend Kevin and the wonderful, eclectic family of her coffee shop regulars.


Unfortunately, she’s keeping a secret from them all. The new bank owner, Frank Miller, won’t extend her loan and she’s facing immediate foreclosure. Things get further complicated when Donovan’s ex-boyfriend Patrick returns to declare his love just as her clashes with Broadway playwright—and tea-drinker—Ben Carson get interesting. Ben is in town writing his new play for his producer. With love and financial ruin bubbling around her, Donavan realizes that her identity and self-worth are not defined by what she can accomplish alone. Instead, Donavan—and her community—can accomplish more together, which leads her to make choices she may not have before.


There is an all-star cast in this romantic drama:


  • Donavan is played by Laura Vandervoort (from Supergirl, Smallville and V)
  • Ben Carson is played by Cory M. Grant (from All My Children and Nashville)
  • Donovan’s ex-boyfriend Patrick is played by Josh Ventura (from All Eyez on Me, Queen Sugar and Megan Leavey)
  • Jon Lovitz (from Happiness, A League of Their Own and Loaded Weapon 1)
  • And Kevin Sorbo (from Hercules and God’s Not Dead)


Tickets are FREE, but seating is limited. Tickets are available at the WNZR Studios in Founders Hall on the campus of Mount Vernon Nazarene University. The WNZR Office is open Monday – Friday from 6 a.m.–6 p.m
