Revelstoke skaters put the final touches on their upcoming Family Game Night Ice Skating Show at the dress rehearsal last week. Now they are ready to perform  at the Revelstoke Forum on Thursday, Mar. 17, at 5:30 p.m.

The Skating Club and host Shaun Aquiline from EZ Rock would like to encourage the community to come out and watch the show. There will also be some notable community folks who picked up unlucky Monopoly Chance cards and will be jailed at the event.

Jailbirds Mark McKee, Alan Chell, Mike Hooker, Garry Pendergast, Roberta Bobicki, Karen Powers, and Bobby McLelland each need to raise $300 to secure their freedom during the show.

“We would like to thank these folks and their organizations for the support,” says Skating Club president Mary Kline. “Funds raised will go towards Revelstoke’s skating program and a charity of the jailbird’s choice and donations can be made at the show.”

This will be the fifth ice skating show developed and choreographed by head coach Nina Greschner and Kidskate/Canskate coach Adrienne Schurdevin, both past professional Disney on Ice skaters. They hope to continue to build upon the success of previous shows including Broadway on Ice, Heroes and Villains, Our Precious Planet, and Name that Movie.

“My intention is to give our skaters the opportunity to experience an ice show atmosphere where they can develop an understanding of portraying roles while executing a technical program,” said Greschner. “After months of practice and rehearsals skaters are so excited to finally be performing to the community’s local crowd.”
