Unfamiliar theatergoers will find the stage musical version of Footloose to be a different animal from either the original 1983 film or the 2011 remake, with well-known songs from the soundtrack sung by characters onstage. While other local theater troupes are still prepping for their first shows of 2013, Artisan Center Theater hits the ground running. The show runs Jan 3-Feb 9 at Belaire Theatre, 420 E Pipeline Rd, Hurst. Tickets are $14-18. Call 817-284-1200.
