If you are looking for a fun way to beat the heat, you should check out the weekday musicals at Ohlook Performing Arts Center.  We were recently tipped off to this little gem located in downtown Grapevine, Texas on Barton Street (just off of Main Street).  Ohlook Theatre has been offering up performances and musicals since 2002.

The performances start at 10:30 am each weekday and run for about an hour or so.  These shows are perfect for moms (or dads) looking for things to do with their kids during the summer.  Tickets cost only $5 for kids willing to sit on the floor or $7 for a chair.  Word on the street is that these shows are very entertaining for children and adults alike.

Next weeks show is called Oz-land which is a Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland themed musical.  From the Ohlook Performance Arts Center website, “This original new musical combines the best-loved characters from Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, plus a few new ones.  Written and directed by Ohlook’s own Tony Daussat, you won’t want to miss this delightful show, promising entertainment for the entire family!”  This show is performed by student actors.

Ohlook Theatre is a non-profit theatre for and by children to adults in Grapevine,Texas. You can find more information on shows, tickets, and other information at the Ohlook website.
