American Stage in the Park Gilbert and Sullivan's swashbuckling musical Pirates of Penzance has been reworked with a Gulf Coast flavor for this popular outdoor series. It's at 8 tonight through Sunday at Demens Landing, 100 First Ave. SE, St. Petersburg. $11-$26. (727) 823-7529.

BOWser Abode Tour Rescue Rally Catch the touring display of pimped-out designer doghouses created by local architects, builders, artists and designers.
