Syndey Morton will step into the role of Alex Owens, the welder-turned-dancer played by Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, the zeitgeisty hit movie from the 1980s turned here into a big musical show. By day, she works in a steel mill; at night, she shakes her moneymaker in a bar. There’s romance, drama and—yes—flashdancing.

Performances are Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30 PM; Thursday through Saturday at 8 PM; and Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM. For tickets and info, call the Proctors box office at 346-6204.
