El Campanil Children’s Theatre Presents The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Friday November 2, 2012 7:30 pm

Sunday November 4, 2012 2:00 pm

A classic ghost story by Washington Irving, adapted by Vera Morris

Based on the original story by Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow tells the story of Tarry Town, a place where strange things happen and the townsfolk seem entranced by spirits. Ichabod Crane, a well-educated teacher, is new to Sleepy Hollow and seems to fit right in. He’s taking over the choir, courting the wealthy daughter and sharing a ghost story or two. But not everyone is happy to see Ichabod and not everyone thinks he loves ghost stories as much as he says. He meets a mysterious fate. Legend has it that he is the victim of the dreaded “headless horseman” who allegedly haunts Sleepy Hollow.

Performed by our own Children’s Theatre Company. Performers usually range from ages 7 – 16.

Tickets: Adults: $ 12 Seniors (62 and Older): $ 10 Child (17 and Under): $ 8

Summerset Big Band & Summerset Singers – Veteran’s Day Concert

Sunday November 11, 2012 3:00 p.m. (PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGE)

Stay for the concert after the Veteran’s Day Parade (1 pm) – Along Second Street

A musical celebration of America and its veterans is coming to the El Campanil Theater in Antioch this Veterans Day, November 11, 2012. This patriotic tribute to our country and those who have protected it will feature two popular local groups, the Summerset Singers chorus and the Summerset Big Band, together in concert. The show will include such inspiring and rousing favorites as “America the Beautiful,” “Armed Forces

Medley,” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” The program will also feature some of the most beloved standards from the World War Two era.


The SUMMERSET SINGERS are currently in their thirteenth season of entertaining residents of Brentwood community and Contra Costa County. Over-the years the chorus has grown to over seventy members, and has achieved the stature of one of the best choral groups in the area. Directed by Ernie Macintyre, the Singers are best known for their annual summer show, which this year will include an additional performance at the new Brentwood Community Center. The Singers also perform numerous Christmas concerts throughout the county.

The SUMMERSET BIG BAND was formed in May of 2006 as a “rehearsal band” within the Summerset retirement community. At that time there were nine members. The band has now grown to a core complement of fourteen, plus “alumni” and alternates, all talented musicians from the Brentwood-Antioch area of Eastern Contra Costa County. The band is comprised of five saxophones, four trombones, four trumpets, piano, bass, and drums.

The Summerset Big Band has played to the delight of thousands people who enjoy listening and/or dancing as the band interprets the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, and others. It fills a musical gap for folks, many of whom become emotional because of the wonderful memories brought back by the band’s nostalgic music. Audiences cheer when the band performs a slow, melodic tune such as “Moonlight Serenade”; ups the tempo with “Two O’clock Jump”; or a vocal rendering of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.”

Tickets: Adults: $ 15 Seniors (62 and Older): $ 12 Child (17 and Under): $ 10


Tribute To The Music Of John Denver – Starring Jim Curry

Saturday November 17, 2012 8:00 pm

The music of the late John Denver is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time. Join acclaimed performer Jim Curry for this tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage.

Tribute artist Jim Curry, who’s voice was heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, has performed Denver’s music in sold out shows throughout the country and has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s vast legacy of multi-platinum hits.

Jim’s uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High” “Sunshine”“Calypso” and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts, and his popular music had the heartfelt message of caring for the earth and caring for each other.

Holy Angels Books Presents

Sunday November 18, 2012   2:00 pm

Filmed in Europe, RESTLESS HEART is the first full-length feature movie on St. Augustine. Born in North Africa, Augustine studied in Carthage, becoming an accomplished but dissolute orator. After converting to Manichaeism, a guilt-free religion, he was called to the imperial court in Milan to serve as an opponent to the Christian Bishop Ambrose. But when the Empress Justina sent imperial guards to clear out a basilica where Augustine’s mother, Monica, was worshipping, her constant prayers and the witness of Ambrose won him over to Christianity. Serving in Hippo in 430 AD, Bishop Augustine urged the Roman garrison to negotiate with the Vandal King Genseric, but they proudly refused. He passed up a chance to escape on a ship sent to rescue him by the Pope, and stayed by the side of his people.

Christian Duguay directed the film, and the cast includes Franco Nero, Johannes Bandrup, Monica Guerritore and Alessandro Preziosi.

While her mother has to go back to Istanbul for a few weeks, Hayat is supposed to stay in Germany with her grandma. But then Hayat’s grandma falls into a coma. Although Hartmut initially doesn’t want to have anything to do with the precocious little Turkish girl, he gradually succumbs to Hayat’s stubborn charm and decides to help her.
