Summerfest: Movies, Music and Magic under the stars
Submitted By Gosia Gizycki
Ohlone College Summerfest 2011 season opens June 24 and runs all summer with outdoor screenings of four sing-along movie musicals. Join us on Friday, June 24th in the outdoor amphitheatre and bring the whole family for Walt Disney's Aladdin. Everyone can participate, and sing along with Jasmine, Aladdin, and the irrepressible Genie of the Lamp!
Enjoy the antic spoofs of Abu the monkey, Iago the cranky parrot and of course the flying carpet, who adds a colorful dash of character that's all his own. Come dressed as your favorite Aladdin character if you want! Bring a few blankets and plan to spend the night singing.
The rest of our magical, musical movie summer features three additional musical movies-all in sing along format, and three live performances as outlined in the calendar below. StarStruck is back in mid-July with Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Jr. presented by the StarStruck Players. This show is followed by a full-on performance of StarStruck Theatre's Guys and Dolls, presented for three weekends at the end of June and beginning of August.
And for wholesome, fun comedy improv, Comedy Sportz returns to the Smith Center Amphitheatre for an outdoor performance where the audience gets to be part of the fun!
