What The Dickens Is Going On At OhLook?

What The Dickens Is Going On At OhLook?

Grapevine, Texas – November 24, 2014 – Get ready to be visited by some very whimsical ghosts you will enjoy meeting this Holiday season! Local performers at OhLook Theater in Grapevine are hard at work on two different variations of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” for your holiday entertainment pleasure. Both shows offer nostalgia with a twist that won’t leave you Ebenezer bitter!

Directed by Woody Blackburn, A Seussified Christmas Carol is being performed by kids ages 6-14 and is enjoyable for ALL ages. Wacky rhymed couplets that Dr. Seuss himself might have come up with, if he’d ever had his way with the story, steal the show. Join “Bed Headed Fred” and “Timmy Loo Hoo”, along with “Things 1 and 2” on their Christmas adventure, December 5 – 7.

Scrooge’s Groovy Christmas is an adaptation of the Dickens classic by Matt Lord. Watch Scrooge visit his past, present and future 70’s style, after eating a bowl of mushroom soup! Jacob Marley becomes Bob Marley in this hilarious rendition you don’t want to miss. Scrooge’s Groovy Christmas is an OhLook signature late night show, with performances at 11 pm. Feel free to bring your own “holiday cheer”.

Tickets for both shows are available online at A Seussified Christmas Carol runs December 5-7; Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 pm. Scrooge’s Groovy Christmas runs December 12-20; with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 11 pm.

If you’ve never been to this little gem of a theater, you are in for a treat. Get your tickets early, as seating is very personal and limited. Concessions are available, and you are welcome to BYOHC (Bring Your Own Holiday Cheer) for the late night shows. OhLook Theater is located at 1631 W. Northwest Hwy in Grapevine.

Creating new jobs isn’t all The Fresh Market cares about. Giving back is a strong part of the specialty grocer’s culture. Each year the company supports charitable organizations through corporate donations and community events. With September being the start of the school year for children, it only made sense to provide support for what the Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign strives to achieve.

To increase public awareness, The Fresh Market has organized a food drive for September 23, 2014 at their Career Open House. Those attending the Career Open House are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items.

“We hope you’ll join us in supporting the community,” says Matt Argano, the company’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources. “No child should have to go hungry, especially in America where resources are plentiful when we come together.”

The Fresh Market will be hosting a Career Open House on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 from 8:00am to 7:00pm at the Hilton Dallas/Southlake Town Square located at 1400 Plaza Place; Southlake, TX 76092.

The diversity of positions within The Fresh Market stores illustrates why unique individuals are sought after to make each location special.

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak directly with The Fresh Market’s hiring team to learn about the workplace culture and experience the difference of The Fresh Market way of life.

In a professional interview format, individuals will get an inside look at The Fresh Market and its gourmet products, along with having the opportunity to discuss with current employees why The Fresh Market is a unique and special culture unlike any other. Namely, how employees enthusiastically support local organizations, national charitable partners, and take an active part in the community through events like the food drive for No Kid Hungry®.
