Dennis Brown and Deanna Jent suss out local theater

Footloose Choreographer Dana Lewis keeps the feet moving with sharp, athletic choreography in this energetic Stages St. Louis production. Ben Nordstrom is irresistibly charming as the new kid in town who courts the predictably naughty preacher's daughter (played by the beautiful Juliana Ashley Hansen). Their love story is contrasted with the crises faced by the Reverend Moore and his wife, compellingly played by Bill Lynch and Kari Ely. As the adults face their painful past, the kids win the right to dance, and all the production elements come together for a dazzling finale. Through August 21 at the Robert G. Reim Theatre, 111 South Geyer Road, Kirkwood. Tickets are $20 to $42 ($10 rush for students and seniors). Call 314-821-2407. (Deanna Jent)
