Head into the West Virginia coal mines as Freefall Theatre presents the coming-of-age musical The Burnt Part Boys, opening Saturday. Freefall artistic director Eric Davis directs the tale of 14-year-old Pete, his brother Jake and their friends, who venture together into the same coal mine where their fathers died. It's the local premiere for The Burnt Part Boys, a warm story with a Mark Twain essence by Mariana Elder, Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen that opened in New York in 2010. Performances run through July 6 at 6099 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg. $29-$44, (727) 498-5205, freefalltheatre.com.
