*“Secret Keeper Girl: The Crazy Hair Tour” – The fun and inspiring event aimed at pre-teen girls and their moms comes to West Michigan at 6:30 p.m. Thurs. May 7 at Calvary Baptist Church, 1200 28th St SE. Featured during the evening are a “sew-crazy” fashion show, fun Bible teaching, music, mother and daughter time and crazy hair games. Emphasized are practical modesty and fashion, true beauty and vibrant purity. Advance general admission tickets are $15, groups of 10 or more $13, (day of event $20). Premium and VIP tickets also available. For more info: www.secretkeepergirl.com, https://purefreedom.brushfireapp.com/secret-keeper-girl/428489; 800-691-8312.

*“Things We Couldn’t Say” – The stage portrayal of the true-life story of Grand Rapids resident Diet Eman, who was active in the Dutch Resistance against the Nazis during World War II, comes to Master Arts Theatre, 75 77th St. SW in Byron Township. The production’s opening night (May 14) coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Nazi takeover of Rotterdam in The Netherlands. The play (written by retired Dordt College professor James Schaap) runs through May 30; performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays (except for May 30) and 2 p.m. matinees on Saturdays. Reserved seat tickets are $16 adults, $14 students and senior citizens. Visit www.masterarts.org or call 616-455-1001.

*The Heralders Quartet – The veteran gospel quartet performs at 7 p.m. on Mon. May 25 (Memorial Day) at the Christian Reformed Conference Grounds, 12253 Lakeshore Drive, south of Grand Haven. With more than 50 years of recording and performing, The Heralders still feature original singers Bill Sterk and Ken Dykstra. Concerts again this year at the Conference Grounds are held under the “big tent” as the ministry is planning for a new facility. The Heralders concert officially opens the musical season at the Lake Michigan campground – the weekly Saturday concerts begin June 20. No tickets are necessary; a free-will offering is received. Visit www.crcg.org or call 616-842-4478.
