Annual Ice Show set for this weekend
Thursday, February 28, 2013
Jefferson City’s 51st annual ice show is set for this weekend, with about 200 performers.
Rachel Bruemmer, skating director and co-director of this year’s “Radio Gaga” show, said the show is about the things people do and the places we visit while listening to the radio. The show has nothing to do with pop music star Lady Gaga, something Bruemmer said has been a common question.
“It’s about living your life by the radio,” Bruemmer said. “It’s a lot of music.”
There are a variety of group numbers and spotlight performances given by Parks and Recreation lesson programs and members of the Jefferson City Figure Skating Club.
Bruemmer said the performers spend about seven weeks in practice and rehearsals, but for the instructors and the rest of Bruemmer’s team, it’s been about eight months of preparations.
The show lasts about an hour and 45 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission.
Performances at Washington Park Ice Arena will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $4 for those age 17 and younger, $6 for adults and children age 2 and younger get in free.
