There are four competitive segments at tonight’s Boston Celtics Dancers final auditions - and yup, there’s a swimsuit pageant. The other three are a choreographed dance performed by the 44 finalists, a four-person group routine, and a solo segment in which contestants create their own choreography. Celebrity judges include former Patriot Christian Fauria and NESN’s Heidi Watney. Billy Costa from KISS 108 will emcee. The contestants will be narrowed to a team of just 17 dancers. 6 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. competition. $10 suggested donation (each ticket includes a special offer from Qdoba Mexican Grill). 18+. Proceeds benefit Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation. House of Blues, 15 Lansdowne St., Boston. 888-693-2583.

Because events can always be canceled or sold out, it’s best to call to confirm. Send event information two weeks in advance to (please include event date on the subject line).
