Fancy being serenaded by a band of merry, not-so-dangerous pirates? Or by dashing Venetian gondoliers?

Both are singing out Gilbert and Sullivan tunes this month, in productions mounted by the 5th Avenue Theatre and the Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

The 5th Avenue’s big-splash staging of the G & S classic “The Pirates of Penzance” will feature Broadway trouper Hunter Ryan Herdlicka as the young would-be swashbuckler Frederic, Seattle ace Brandon O’Neill (shown here) as the lusty Pirate King and Anne Eisendrath as the fair maiden Mabel.

“Pirates” runs Thursday-Aug. 4 at the 5th Avenue (206-625-1900 or www.5thAvenue.org).

At Seattle Center’s Bagley Wright Theatre, the Seattle G & S Society presents its newest staging of the delightfully faux-Italianate “Gondoliers” July 12-27 (800-838-3006 or www.pattersong.org).
