Aladdin sings One Direction, Snow White covers Katy Perry’s “Firework” and the Sheriff of Nottingham goes Lady Gaga in the amusing musical mash-up that makes up the Princess And Pirates Sing-A-Long Concert. Running Fridays through Sundays through Aug. 10 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre (9820 W. Washington Blvd., Culver City; www.princesspirateslive.com), this comical musical production is the latest theatrical creation of Lythgoe Family Productions, the folks behind the popular holiday shows A Snow White Christmas, Aladdin and His Winter Wish and A Cinderella Christmas.

Their new show, with 3 p.m. performances Fri.-Sun. and noon shows Sat. and Sun., mashes together characters from favorite fables and cross-pollinates them with today’s pop hits, with the audience encouraged to sing along. Princess and Pirates’ talented performers have appeared on TV shows including Glee and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and stage productions of Wicked and Shrek; and the show’s director earned an Emmy nomination for his work on So You Think You Can Dance. This lighthearted musical romp makes for perfect summertime fare that will put a smile on everyone’s face. Admission is $39 adults, $29 ages 12 and younger.
