The film presents an image of the construction of the first Transcontinental Railroad. Brandon, a surveyor,  dreams of building the railroad while his skeptical friend Thomas Marsh, who is a small constructor, believes he is nothing but a dreamer chasing a rainbow; their children Davy Brandon and Miriam Marsh are best friends. Abraham Lincoln looks on as Brandon heads with Davy to the west, where he finds a possible pass for the railroad. However, a group of Cheyenne led by a white renegade kills and scalps Brandon; Davy, who is hidden, sees that the killer has only two fingers in his right hand.

Crews of Chinese, Italians, and Irish work to build the railway while resisting Indian attack. When the pay train is delayed by Indian ambush, the Italians go on strike. The film culminates with the scene of driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit on May 10, 1869 where the locomotives 116 and Jupiter meet each other in the intersection of the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific.

Tickets Only $5

Cotuit on the Road Presents


Anthony Teixeira Sings Tony Bennett Duets

Tickets at door $20

Tony Bennett’s career spans more than 60 years and with the help of his son, he has recreated himself bringing his music to a whole new audience. In 2006 to mark his 80th birthday, Tony Bennett released a duet album recorded with a collection of stars including Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Elvis Costello, Bono and Sting. The project proved to be such a success that he did another celebratory album in 2011 for his 85th birthday. His latest album “Cheek to Cheek” is a collaboration with Lady Gaga, and he has embarked on a world tour to promote the album.

Many of the songs chosen for this show are the standards that created Tony Bennett’s career and that he chose to re-record with other successful pop & Jazz singers as duets on several albums. “One of my favorite albums, “In Person Tony Bennett”, which was released in 1959, I listened to incessantly when I was in my early twenties and studying voice, said Ruth Condon. I studied every song on this album, as Tony Bennett’s phrasing is impeccable and it was a great music lesson. I have chosen 3 songs from this album.” “There is a total of 14 duets that Anthony shares with these talented female vocalist plus 2 solo performances in the show.”

Anthony Teixeira has been seen in many productions at Cotuit Center for the Arts, including “Company,” “Spamalot,” “Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris,” “Christmas in Cotuit,” “Cabaret,” “A Grand Night for Singing.”, “What the World Needs Now-A Musical Tribute to Burt Bacharach” & this past summer “The Last Five Years”.

Our Mission

The Mission of the Sandwich Town Hall Preservation Trust is to support the continued stewardship of the historic Sandwich Town Hall, to assist the Town Manager and staff as a resource for volunteers, events, and programs, to provide, if feasible, funds for special purposes, and to make recommendations for the perpetual protection and enhancement of the Sandwich Town Hall as a major cultural, functional, and historic asset of the Town of Sandwich and the Commonwealth. The beautifully restored Town Hall in Sandwich, Cape Cod’s Oldest Town, features Community Events, Meetings, Movies, Shows, Talks and Tours in a unique and historic setting. Sandwich Town Hall Ceiling Built in 1834, Sandwich Town Hall was restored to its former glory in 2009. The second floor ballroom where movies and theatrical productions are presented is particularly beautiful with its historically accurate ceiling stenciling of tan and brown paint and gold leaf. There’s also a theatrical stage, balcony seating and fully restored historic shuttered windows. The Sandwich Town Hall was granted a Preservation Award for Rehabilitation & Restoration by the Massachusetts Historical Commission in 2011. The Town Hall has been in active use as the seat of Town government for over 175 years. An award-winning rehabilitation and restoration was completed in 2010.
