“Queens of Soul”

The performances by the Grand Rapids Pops are Sept. 27, 28 and 29 at DeVos Performance Hall.

The Trivia Crawl That Can Not be Named
(Saturday)

“Sleepy Hollow: The Play”
(Thursday-Sunday)

This show is based on of the short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving and is “filled with multimedia effects and illusions that bring to life a menacing moment in time for the villagers of this small Dutch settlement,” the theater says. The theater advises that this production is “a dark and graphic re-telling of a Halloween classic.”

The play is Sept. 26-28 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. at Dog Story Theater.
