'Christmas Around the World' to feature ice skating performances
By Chris Fish
BREVARD -- A Christmas celebration from around the world is coming to Rockledge this holiday season.
The Space Coast Iceplex will host the 17th annual ice-skating spectacular "Christmas Around the World," Friday, Dec. 13, through Sunday, Dec. 15.
Colleen Stuart, a former adult skater, figure skating judge and current media liaison for the Space Coast Iceplex, said the performance is a must-see for Brevard County residents.
"Every year, I say 'This is the best show ever,' because, each year, the skating and quality of the performances just keeps getting better," she said. "(The show) will put even the most 'Scrooge-like' person in a warm and fuzzy holiday mood."
Ms. Stuart said the performance would feature a variety of group numbers and individual performances, all of which contribute to the theme of the show.
Skaters of the show will include members of the Iceplex "learn to skate" classes, as well as seasoned skaters of all ages, Ms. Stuart said.
The National and International Theatre on Ice champions will also be performing. In addition, recently crowned Eastern Sectional Champion T.J. Nyman will be performing, prior to his January participation at Nationals.
The Iceplex Christmas Show has become a Space Coast tradition, with each year hosting a different theme.
This year's show will include four performances, with each costing $12 per ticket.
Show dates and times are: Friday, Dec. 13 at 6 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 14 at 5 p.m.; and two shows on Sunday, Dec. 15, at noon and 6 p.m.
Tickets should be purchased in advance at the Iceplex reception desk. Attendance is limited, and each year's shows reach maximum capacity.
Tickets may also be reserved by phone.
The Space Coast Iceplex is located at 720 Roy Wall Blvd., in Rockledge.
