Ohlone College Summerfest 2010: Music, Movies and Magic Under the Stars

Summerfest 2010 brochure cover.

Fremont, CA—The Ohlone College Summerfest 2010 season opens July 4th weekend with an outdoor screening of Disney’s Mary Poppins, the first of two Movie Musical Sing-alongs. Join us on July 2nd in the outdoor amphitheatre and bring the whole family. Everyone can participate, singing with Mary Poppins, Jane and Michael Banks and the irrepressible Bert in Disney’s 1964 Academy Award-winning film (Best Actress). A special feature of the night includes a sidewalk chalk drawing contest thirty minutes before the film, at 7:45. Don’t worry, we provide the chalk! Bring a few blankets and plan to spend the night singing.

The rest of our magical, musical movie summer features four opera films, Madame Butterfly by Puccini, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Puccini’s La Rondiné, and Samson and Delilah by Saint-Saens, high definition film versions of fully staged San Francisco Opera presentations. Wine and cheese will be served at an additional cost 30 minutes before each performance. Maestro David Sloss of Fremont Symphony Orchestra and Fremont Opera will present pre-show lectures at the first two opera screenings.

A second Movie Musical Sing-along is a double feature of Little Shop of Horrors with a late night second feature of Rocky Horror Picture Show on July 10th. We are also excited to co-present two live performances, Star Struck Theatre’s presentation of Les Miserables in the amphitheatre and Fremont Opera presenting Verdi’s La Traviata inside the Jackson Theatre at the end of August.
