Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance brings the high seas into the theater as young Frederic battles a group of pirates that has been holding him in servitude. “You can’t really go wrong with pirates, and these happen to be particularly entertaining ones,” says director Colleen Kelly. The accompanying music is artfully arranged and full of humor and rollicking rhymes. 

Through 7/9. $20-45, various times. Culbreth Theatre, 109 Culbreth Road. 924-3376.
