These one-of-a-kind performances throughout Houston Ballet’s rich history have included an array of beloved moments from iconic ballets alongside world premiere works.

Final Weekend
Gates Open

The founders created the rodeo back in 1940 in an effort to bring the citizens of Pasadena together, offer opportunities for the community youth, and to preserve the lifestyle and moral convictions of an agricultural era that was quickly passing. Their efforts continue to this day.

This weekend the Pasadena Livestock and Rodeo continues at the Pasadena Fair Grounds. A drive to the entertainment venues may be worth the weekender.

Parker McCollum
with Flatland Cavalry
and Kylie Frey
@Cynthia Woods
Mitchell Pavilion

Saturday 10/2/2021 7:00 PM
Gates Open 5:30 PM

Parker McCollum hails from Conroe, Texas. This weekend McCollum will be close to his neighborhood; The Woodlands at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion with Flatland Cavalry and Kylie Frey.

McCollum grew up surrounded by music, learning how to play violin for the school orchestra and then picking up a guitar when he became a teenager. That is what All says and soon afterward, he started penning his own songs, which led to him playing local gigs when he was in his late teens. McCollum moved to Austin after his high school graduation, and he balanced college with performing for a while, but music soon won out. He performed on his own and took a gig supporting Six Market Blvd.

The Plastic Cup Boyz
@Houston Improv

Saturday 10/2/2021 7:00 PM & 9:30 PM
Sunday 10/2/2021 7:30 PM

The Plastic Cup Boys: Na'im Lynn and Will "Spank" Horton seems to be the surest thing to come out of Jersey and it happened way before MTV was even a reality. This weekend they will be at Houston's Impro.

But you can blame it on the moon men or some other inter-galactic event but there's no denying that the universe was blessed with the descent of Na'im Lynn landing in a small town named Hillside two miles east of Newark Liberty Airport (even then he was so fly he was two miles ahead of the plane!).

Nevertheless it was obvious a star was born. Growing up using Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy for muses it wasn't long before Na'im developed a knack for out-of-this-world comedy that has him skyrocketing to the top as the next big thing.

Best known as the opening act for his friend famed comedian Kevin Hart Na'im travels the world over blazing the stage as part of Hart's continuous tour that has produced two genius comedic movies - "Seriously Funny" and "Laugh at my Pain", which Na'im also stared in.
