Golfing, dating and four days of theater. Here are seven days worth of Richmond activities from our 2016 Summer Guide.

Monday, June 20
Tee up for a good cause. The Rick Sharp Classic Auction and Golf Tournament, June 20-21, benefits the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. Held in honor of the late Richmond executive of CarMax at the Independence Golf Club in Midlothian. The fundraiser includes a reception and auction on Monday night. 501auctions.com/ricksharpclassic.

Tuesday, June 21
Reunite with a Drive-By Trucker. Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and guitarist Jason Isbell, from Green Hill, Alabama, plays the Altria Theater. Get there early to check out Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls. 7:30 p.m. altriatheater.com.

Wednesday, June 22
Look for romance in the Devil’s Triangle. Not all connections are made on Match.com. Speed dating is still a thing. Try the Summer Lovin’ speed dating social at Sheppard Street Tavern, formerly Caliente. 6:30 p.m. Free. And if things go well, or don’t, there’s always bar-hopping at Buddy’s and Bandito’s. sheppardstreettavern.com.

Thursday, June 23
Get rowdy with the ladies. The team that brought the popular “Dixie Swim Club” to life — Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten — have a new summer Southern comedy up their sleeves. “The Hallelujah Girls” runs June 9-July 23 at Swift Creek Mill. swiftcreekmill.com.

Friday, June 24
Experience opening night. And I am telling you: Virginia Repertory Theatre is going to wring out as many laughs, tears and powerhouse vocals as possible from its summer musical, “Dreamgirls,” which opens this weekend. June 24-Aug. 7. va-rep.org.

Saturday, June 25
Rock out. The punk rock opera that hit Broadway, created by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, opens at Firehouse Theatre. The talented Richmond cast of “Green Day’s American Idiot” does double-duty by playing instruments, too. They can act, they can rock. Runs through July 23. firehousetheatre.org.

Sunday, June 26
Meet your Broadway neighbors. Andrea Rivette is the host of “To Broadway and Beyond (and Back!)” at the Richmond Triangle Players. Hear interviews and songs from Broadway performers who have moved to Richmond. Featuring Matt Ferrell, Timothy A. Fitz-Gerald and Jody Ashworth. rtriangle.org.

You'll find plenty more to do around town in our 2016 Summer Guide.
