If you've ever had a problem with rodent control, this may NOT be the play for you. In Lane Riosley's clever retelling of Robert Browning's famed poem about the Pied Piper of Hamelin (not to be confused with R. Kelly, the so-called "Pied Piper of R&B"), the story gets both a happy ending and a sense of humor. The Commedia Pied Piper is sure to leave you laughing all the way home with your bunch of critters. You'll love the Commedia dell'arte style as performed by the Tarradiddle Players. 7:30 p.m. $18/$14. Wachovia Playhouse, Children's Theatre of Charlotte, 300 E. 7th St. 704-973-2828. www.ctcharlotte.org.
