See four cast members, local friends and family in Ferrante film Forgotten Evil fundraiser on April Fool’sFriday, March 24th, 2017
Filmed in Antioch last summer
Director Anthony Ferrante will show his “Forgotten Evil” at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 1s at El Campanil Theatre, 602 West Second St. in Antioch. The film was shot last fall throughout Antioch, including Antioch High School, the Antioch Police Department, El Campanil, the marina, Red Caboose and Riverview Lodge. Following the movie, a special Q&A and meet-and-greet is set with Ferrante and his three lead actors: Masiela Lusha, Kyle McKeever and Angie Teodora, along with Adrian Bustamante, a former Antioch resident.
Ferrante, an Antioch High graduate, directed the thriller, which follows amnesia victim Renee trying to piece together her past before she can start her new future. Played by Lusha, she is best known as Carmen, the daughter from the “George Lopez” TV show. Ferrante has also directed the wildly popular “Sharknado” movies.
It premiered on the LMN Channel on Sunday night, March 12. So if you didn’t watch it then, now’s your chance. And if you’ve already seen, this time watch it with the people who were actually in the film, including some of your local friends and family members.
Proceeds benefit Antioch High School. Tickets are just $10 at the door or $11.50 online at www.elcampaniltheatre.com. You can also purchase tickets at the Box Office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays and one hour before the show. For more info, call 925-757-9500.

Formed in the late 1970s, the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra has established a presence throughout the county. The orchestra is comprised of forty-five musicians ranging in age from 15 to 94 who are music teachers, accountants, students, electricians, mechanics, homemakers, lawyers, retirees, dentists, engineers and computer specialists. Primarily Contra Costa residents, their only remuneration is the stimulation and satisfaction of rehearsing and performing together. In addition to the five-concert season at the Lesher Center, the orchestra also nurtures its dedication to the community by providing affordable performances to the residents of East Contra Costa County at El Campanil Theatre.
Soprano Sarah Sloan and tenor Jeffrey Albright, who were our soloists in last season’s popular “Broadway at the Movies” set, return to sing songs from beloved movies and musicals. The orchestra is featured in selections from contemporary blockbusters and classical hits alike, including Mussorgsky’s evocative tone poem Night on Bald Mountain, and Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from Sleeping Beauty.
Night on Bald Mountain — Modest Mussorgsky
Music from “Up” — Michael Giacchino/arr. Datzman
Celebrating the 50th birthday of composer Michael Giacchino
Waltz, from “Sleeping Beauty” — Peter Tchaikovsky
Star Wars: The Force Awakens — John Williams
