In my opinion, if there are stage lights/other lights and the sun, never use the flash. You can distract people with the flash, and you will not capture the natural light which could be beautifull. If you are very short on light, then you need a kick from the flash.
About the lens, i think you should go for you 24 - 105 because i think you will not suit all shots with the prime or you will need to crop, or you can not frame properly With the zoom lens, you can zoom around and get things closer and further away
Just my 2 cents.
By the way, welcome to the forum
My guess is though that you will need to use some flash. Shoot in RAW and you will be good.
Oh yeah, by the way, this is the way i would do it. It does not bring down the way you will/would do it

Notice I said a little-the flash would be your fill light, leaving the sun or stadium lights as your main light (strongest source). Testing your settings is going to be key, flash definitely should be on TTL for moving objects. Also be aware of light levels changing as the sun goes down.
I am curious, would you go for a direct hit with the flash on full TTL? Or bounce the flash? And will you change anything on the display from the flash fo make it a "fill light".
Oh by the way Elizabeth, keep in mind that when you use the flash, you will not zoom further than your flash can go. I thought the 430 will not go further than 105mm, so thats exactly the maximum of the 24-105. If you use a 70-200, you will loose light..
In my whole photography expirience, i have had never problems with the white balance. I just do it with post processing.
But hey! Thats my workflow though
