Say Goodbye To Pro Wrestling This Weekend

Planning your weekend? Consider the last wrestling match at the Academy Theatre, 'Annie,' student performances at the DeKalb School of the Arts, the Soapbox Derby and the Concert on the Square.

1. One last sleeper hold, for old time's sake. Pro wrestling has been a Friday night mainstay at the Academy Theater, but it's being phased.
