The wait is over for local skating fans as tickets for the biennial Campbell River Skating Club Ice Show are now on sale.
The theme for this year’s show is Blades on Broadway and it will feature Vancouver skater Nam Nguyen as its headlining guest performer.
“This amazing event is held every two years and gives our skaters an opportunity to showcase their talents and to participate in this community event,” said Lynda Ostashek, Ice Show Chair.
There will be two performances at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on March 10 at Rod Brind’Amour Arena and tickets went on sale this week at Christian Life Children’s Centre, Campbell River Visitor Centre, Tangles Hair Salon and Day Spa and at Strathcona Gardens. Tickets are $14 each or two for $25.
This year’s guest skater, Nguyen is 2011 Junior Men Champion of Canada, the youngest Canadian ever to win Jr. Men’s title at age of 12 in the Canadian Figure Skating history. He began to learn skating at five and won his first title – the Juvenile Men’s title at the 2007 Skate Canada Junior Nationals Championships – when he was eight years old. Nguyen followed that up with the Pre-Novice title in the following season, and then took the Novice title.
“This is a terrific opportunity for our skaters to meet someone young with a passion for figure skating and we promise that our Ice Show will be a very special and fun time for all our skaters,” Ostashek said.
