From theatrical performances to sports and live music, there is no shortage of things to do this weekend around Charlotte. Here’s a taste of what’s on the agenda:

The musical "Jekyll and Hyde" starring Deborah Cox and Constantine Maroulis is playing at Belk Theater.


At the theatre:
The musical “Jekyll and Hyde” starring Grammy Award nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox and "American Idol" star and Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis opened to a packed house at the Belk Theatre Tuesday night.


Cox and Maroulis inject new life into this dark and dangerous love story with riveting performances of the classic songs (“This is the Moment,” “A New Life,” “Someone Like You”) that transformed “Jekyll & Hyde” into a theatrical phenomenon. Charlotte is one of a handful of cities “Jekyll & Hyde” is playing prior to its Broadway opening. The show runs through Nov. 11.


For daddies and daughters:
Friday night, WPEG morning radio host Nolimit Larry is hosting his second annual Father-Daughter dance at Grimes Hall (Johnson C. Smith University, 100 Beatties Ford Road) at 6 p.m. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department chief Rodney Monroe is scheduled to deliver remarks.


On Saturday, watch Nolimit and his celebrity friends play in a charity basketball game to raise money to support Children of Murdered Parents, a non-profit organization providing social and financial support to families who have lost a parent to death by violence. The game begins at 5 p.m. and will be held at Vance High School. 


Jazz for all:
Also happening Saturday, the Jazz Arts Initiative is hosting their first big-ticket fundraiser, the Jazz for All Benefit at Whitehead Manor (5901 Sardis Road) at 7 p.m. The event will feature live jazz performances, a silent auction, food, wine and beer. Proceeds will go towards helping JAI’s mission of providing training, education and performance opportunities for young aspiring jazz musicians.


Football:
After ending their five-game losing streak with a win over the Washington Redskins, see if the Panthers will get another victory when they take on the Denver Broncos Sunday at Bank of America Stadium.
