Revelstoke Skating Club hosts Our Precious Planet showcase

Revelstoke Skating Club members prepared for their annual showcase at a Mar. 7 practice. This year’s showcase is entitled Our Precious Planet.

Get ready for the Revelstoke Skating Club’s season showcase performance.

Our Precious Planet will share how far the skaters have come and showcase this new piece.

The Revelstoke Skating Club is a not-for-profit society created to give children and adults the opportunity to develop skills on the ice.

The project is a community effort relying on the support of parents and volunteers to organize the shows. The crew of accredited coaches are dedicated to getting the skaters’ performances ready.

Head coach Nina Greschner choreographed and produced the piece with the help of KidSkate coach Adrienne Schurdevin and PowerSkate coach Shawn Bracken.

A large multi-generational cast ranging in age from three to adult includes many enthusiastic skaters returning from previous performances.

The last year’s event was a huge success; hundreds of people came out. The society is hoping for an even bigger turnout this year.

The theme this year is global environmental issues. Spanning the ocean, arctic, rainforest and the Savanna desert, each scene will depict a commonly known and broad issue its inhabitants face.

At a recent rehearsal, the smallest of the skaters hold green signs that say “reuse, recycle, reduce,” a testament to some of the solutions to the issues brought up in the piece. Others wore brightly coloured homemade animal or insect costumes.

So come out, be entertained, show some support for all their hard work and buy a flower for your favourite skater at intermission. The show is at the Revelstoke Forum on Thursday, Mar. 13., doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30. Admission is by donation.
