    Sat., Sept. 22, 12-2 p.m.

    According to the Outright Vermont website, young LGBTQ people were six times more likely to have attempted suicide in 2017 than their heterosexual peers. Community members can help carry the weight for the state’s LGBTQ youth by participating in the annual Fire Truck Pull. Teams of 12 or more muster all their might to haul a fully loaded fire truck up Church Street to raise funds for the Burlington-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting the state’s young queer population. Golden fire truck trophies reward winners in competitive categories such as fastest pull time, best costumes and audience favorite. at Top of Church St. in Burlington (map). $2,000 per team; free for spectators; preregister to pull.

    Americana singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell’s latest album, Acoustic Classics, isn’t a typical greatest hits collection.

Selections include the honky-tonkin’ “I Couldn’t Leave You if I Tried” and “Shame on the Moon Redux,” an earlier version of which Bob Seger took to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983. Guitarist Joe Robinson and fiddle and mandolin whiz Eamon McLoughlin join the two-time Grammy Award winner for a pair of Green Mountain State gigs. at Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph.

    With 17,162 Off Broadway performances before closing in 2002, Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s The Fantasticks set the record for the world’s longest-running musical.

Thanks to an ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival professional production, Vermont theatergoers can get swept away by this story of a boy and a girl who fall in love, part ways and reunite for a more meaningful relationship. at The Grange Theatre in South Pomfret.
