Ohlook Performing Arts Center is a non-profit children's theatre that was established in 2002. Founded by professional singers, Matthew Lord and Jill Blalock Lord, this theater is where kids could come and be themselves. A place which wasn’t about competition or who’s the best but about opportunity and giving everyone a chance to express themselves in a positive, caring environment. Ohlook is the only children’s theatre in the metroplex that brings in so many professionals and of such high caliber to help teach our students. In recent years Ohlook has welcomed, Anthony Rapp (original cast of “Rent” on Broadway), Jay Hunter Morris (International Opera Star), Keith Buterbaugh (from Broadway’s “Company”, “Phantom” and “Sweeney Todd”), Candace Evans (International Director/Choreographer/Actor), Thomas Douglas (Conductor and Coach Carnegie Mellon University) and Marla Mindelle (Kitty from Nat’l Tour of “The Drowsy Chaperone”) to name just a few.
