Because the California Theatre is currently under construction, part of our 2021-2022 season will take place at the historic El Campanil Theatre in downtown Antioch. Today we had an opportunity to walk through the facilities. Check out what we found!

In 2018, we spent a weekend at El Campanil during our production of Spamalot, and we made sure to leave a memento in the dressing room for future performers.

We look forward to occupying this historic venue once again!

Great Job PCT !! and the Raisin in the Sun production was a success.
Present by Pittsburg Community Theatre A RAISIN IN THE SUN “A Raisin in the Sun” tells the story of the Younger family’s struggle for dignity and a better life, and the backlash that erupts when they try to move beyond their oppressive Chicago tenement home. The tensions and prejudice they face form this ground-breaking American drama, and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world.
Betty Gregg, Pittsburg Community Theatre’s “Spot Light” award recipient!
Oh what fun!
Happy 40th Anniversary PCT! I know that April 9, 1979 is the date of PCT's incorporation. I know this because the very first show I ever directed, "Baby", opened on April 9, 2004, PCT's 25th Anniversary. Thanks PCT for giving me my first opportunity to direct. Since that date 15 years ago, I have directed more than 25 productions. I will always be grateful to the company for their trust in me then.
Bravo! to PCT's cast and crew of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. From the very top of the show with the Youth Chorus' beautiful voices to the closing moments with the cast in matching tie-dyed shirts jamming on stage, the show moved at a quick pace and had the audience's rapt attention throughout. Bobbie Barlow's turn as the Narrator was absolutely wonderful as her full clear voice was perfectly suited to tell us a story. Always a joy to see great character actor Dave Ward add his special take on the roles he plays. The Brothers all played their roles with enthusiasm and sounded especially powerful when singing as a group. Of course the beginning of the second act was stolen by none other than "Pharaoh" himself Lou Esposito II. Lou always has a way to make a character his own while still referencing the source material. Kudos to you brother! Hats off to Choreographer Chelsea Bardelinni and her fabulous Ensemble of chorus boys and girls; all of which looked like they were having so much fun performing that the feeling absolutely spilled over the footlights right into the audiences laps. (as an old Gypsy myself may I make one suggestion? During the dance numbers you LOOKED like you were having fun…but we couldn't HEAR that you were having fun…let's hear some whooping and hollerin during your hoedown for example) But really what would this show be without your lead, Joseph? Luke Cannon, where have you and your wonderful talent been all of PCT's life? This young man was simply sublime in the role. The audience could hear every word of his perfectly pitched voice for the duration of the show. No easy feat when you have to sing for almost two hours straight. He connected with the audience at the appropriate times and had us fully engaged with his plaintive version of "Close Every Door" (is that a tear in my eye?). I do hope we get to see more of his talent in the CA Theatre in the future. The minimal sets were effective and provided ample room for the entire cast to be on stage at once. Oh did I mention we're talking a cast of 40+??? Also a VERY special high five to the costume designers. Those second act Egyptian motif costumes were awesome; colorful, sparkly and appropriate (loved the head-dresses). Hello Shellies? Any minor quibbles could be chalked up to opening night jitters and that pesky sound system PCT is so well known for. The company has done themselves proud with their latest iteration. Thank you Director Keith W. Barlow, Cast, Crew, and company for continuing to VOLUNTARILY bringing quality arts to the City of Pittsburg. STANDING O !!!
Excellent closing show yesterday. Well done, PCT!!!
Food for thought...
Looking for a video of PCT’s Bye Bye Birdie. I can’t find mine and a fellow director wanted to see it for their production (school production). Can anyone help?
this show is like nothing you've ever seen! you have to visit!
