For one weekend, Four County Players transforms its intimate 50-seat Black Box Theater into an upscale cabaret for Songs in the Cellar, a broad musical revue featuring an all-star local cast in gender-swapped roles. Imagine Little Orphan Annie as a boy with a hard knock life, or picture the infamous barber Sweeney Todd as a woman. The hilarious and heartwarming spin on musical theater plays up favorites from Funny Girl to My Fair Lady.

Friday 2/7 through 2/9. $12, times vary. Four County Players, 5256 Governor Barbour St., Barboursville. (540) 832-5355.
