Here's what's going on in town this weekend

Good day on this mild weekend.

While Halloween offers fun to people of all ages, no kids are allowed at this Halloween party. Tease-A-Go-Go, Lansing’s own bi-monthly drag, burlesque and variety show, presents its annual Halloween spectacular Saturday at the Avenue Cafe.

Vaudeville vampires and devilish drag queens sashay, striptease and swagger across the stage at this sexy and playful show. Audience members are invited to take advantage of the free photo booth and are encouraged to dress up. There will even be a crowd-voted costume contest, and winners can take home gift certificates and cash prizes.

This event is for ages 18 and up. Large groups should call ahead for reserved seating.

9 p.m. $10. The Avenue Café, 2021 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. (517) 492-7403, teaseagogo.com.

For more Halloween-related events this weekend and beyond, including a Zombie Prom and festive games, see City Pulse's 2015 Halloween event guide.


A modern classic of children's books is coming to East Lansing Sunday.

The latest installment in the Act One Family Series, “The Stinky Cheese Man And Other Fairly Stupid Tales” is coming to the Wharton Center.

Adapted from the Caldecott Award-winning book by Jon Sciezka and Lane Smith, these zany and hilarious versions of classic tales will be performed on stage by the Mesner Puppet Theater. In a show intended for kids age 4 to 10, narrator Jack will guide the audience through the twists and turns of wacky stories like “Cinderumplestiltskin” and “The Really Ugly Duckling.”

1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. $12. Pasant Theatre, Wharton Center, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing. (517) 432-2000, whartoncenter.com.
