This week it's time for a classic and a not-so-classic. There are lots of musicals running throughout the valley right now, and this week two more open. Here they are:

"Pirates of Penzance" opens Friday and runs through May 3 at Center Street Musical Theatre, 177 W. Center, Provo. The classic Gilbert & Sullivan musical has been a longtime favorite. With pirates, beautiful daughters and of course, the Major General, "Pirates" is fun for the whole family. Shannon Eden is Mabel, Ammon Crossette is Frederick and Gavin Grooms is the Pirate King.

Performances are Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays at 7:30 p.m. Cost is $8-$10 with family passes available. (801-373-4485 or www.csmtc.com)

"The Wizard of Odd," opens Thursday and runs through June 7 at Desert Star Playhouse, 4861 S. State, Murray. This parody of the "Wizard of Oz" and the hit Broadway musical "Wicked" was written by Desert Star regular Ben Millet. The evening also includes the musical olio "Stage Door," featuring Broadway's greatest songs. Performance times and days vary. Cost is $8-$17.95 (266-2600 or www.desertstar.biz)

"End of the Horizon," which sold out three days into its run, has been extended for an additional performance on Saturday at 3 p.m. Debora Threedy's play about Everett Ruess is being performed by Plan-B Theatre Company. Tickets are $18. (355-2787 or www.planbtheatre.org.
