A little taste of Broadway

Blades on Broadway ice show descends on Rod Brind'Amour Arena this Saturday
2011 BMO Skate Canada Junior National Figure Skating Championships
Skater Nam Nguyen is just one of several figure skaters who will put on a spectacular display during Blades on Broadway this weekend.

As the Muppets once famously sang, it’s time to start the music, it’s time to light the lights.

The Campbell River Skating Club’s biennial ice show turns on the spotlight Saturday for two shows at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The theme for this year’s show is Blades on Broadway and it will feature Vancouver skater Nam Nguyen,13, as its headlining guest performer.

This amazing event is held every two years and gives Campbell River skaters an opportunity to showcase their talents.

There will be two performances at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday at Rod Brind’Amour Arena.

Tickets are on sale 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.

Nguyen trains at Burnaby 8 Rinks.

DVD copies of Spotlight on Broadway can purchased for $25 each .
