IT”S A HARD KNOCK LIFE: Annie was just another spunky red-headed orphan living on the streets of New York City in the 1920’s waiting for the sun to come out "Tomorrow" until she met Mr. Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks. Tonight, kick-off the Christmas season with Annie and her array of songs when she hits the stage at the Artisan Center Theater in Hurst. The show runs through Dec. 23. Tickets are $12 for tonight’s performance beginning at 7:30 p.m.
SANTA OVERLOAD: Now that turkey is done with, it’s time to whip out the jolly old St. Nick decorations and the Dallas Arboretum brought out every Santa in all shapes and sizes for this year’s "The Magic of Santa" celebration. The exhibit in the DeGolyer Estate features hundreds of red-suited Santas accompanied by excessive amounts of tinsel open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. After you’ve photographed the artificial Clauses, head out to the gardens and hop on the "real" Santa’s lap for a holiday photo tradition, catch him while you can - he’s only out from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for further details.
SOUNDS OF THE ALTERNATIVE KIND: A few hard rockers are playing the Palladium Ballroom. Catch Hinder with Default, Saving Abel and My Darkest Days show off their star power beginning at 7 p.m. The headlining Oklahoma City natives are amping up crowds for their much anticipated third album "All American Nightmare" set to be released on Dec. 7. Hear the alternative metal vibrations take over DFW tonight. Click here for tickets.
