Top 5 things to do this weekend

Spring Lake tops our list this weekend, featuring a play about urine, a Shindig for the Arts and an ‘80s pop icon in concert.

(1) “Urinetown” — 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 1 p.m. Saturday, at Spring Lake High School, 16140 148th Ave. Tickets are $8 for students and $12 for adults. Some of the proceeds from ticket sales will help students at Eisenhower Elementary School in Flint get bottled water and purchase reusable bottles, said the show’s director, Shaylynn Chalupa. Set in a town suffering from a 20-year drought, the musical follows the revolt of the poor residents after the Urine Good Co. — which helps conserve water by making people pay to pee — implements a fee hike.

(2) Shindig for the Arts — 6:30-10:30 p.m. Saturday at Spring Lake Country Club, 17496 N. Fruitport Road. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door, and proceeds benefit all Spring Lake Public Schools arts programs. Casual attire.

(3) John Waite concert — 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Seven Steps Up, 116 S. Jackson St., Spring Lake. Waite returns for the Wooden Heart Acoustic Tour featuring The Axemen. It’s two concerts back to back. You may remember Waite as the frontman for The Babys and his mega solo hit “Missing You.” Tickets start at $55. Also, singer-songwriter Kim Richey performs at Seven Steps Up at 8 p.m. Friday, with tickets starting at $30.

(4) Mother/Daughter Tea Party — 12-2 p.m. Saturday at United Methodist Church of the Dunes, 717 Sheldon Road, Grand Haven. The cost for this Northwest Ottawa Recreation Authority tradition is $33 for a resident pair and $48 for non-resident pair. The afternoon tea will begin with a light lunch (sandwiches, salad, fruit, dessert, tea or punch), complete with instruction in manners and etiquette. That’s followed by a fashion show and fun crafts. Dress up in your fancy dress and hat. There will be vintage hats and dresses to try on, as well. Pre-registration is required, and you can do it online or call 616-850-5125.

(5) Tango Caliente! — 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Frauenthal Center, 425 W. Western Ave., Muskegon. The West Michigan Symphony will present the seductive sounds of the dance of romance with internationally acclaimed bandoneon artist Hector Del Curto for a night of fiery tango classics. Admission ranges from $25 to $57 ($10 for students).
