Two members of the West Virginia University Figure Skating Club will be the headlining performers at the Dec. 20 “Holiday on Ice” show at the Morgantown Ice Arena. Tickets to the performance, which will begin at 6 p.m., are $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under and are available at the door.
WVU Figure Skating Club members Courtney Caldwell and Shaun Adams, as well as more than a dozen local skaters, will perform solos and duets to holiday songs.
All proceeds will benefit the Mason-Dixon Figure Skating Club, a Morgantown-based organization dedicated to offering young people the chance to perform in shows and exhibitions as well as to test at various skill levels through United States Figure Skating.
Caldwell, a sophomore from Evansville, Indiana, who has been skating since age 11, competes at the Intermediate level and is working to complete her junior moves-in-the-field test, the penultimate test before she becomes a U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist. Adams, a senior at Fairmont State University who has been skating since age 7, competes throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
“Holiday on Ice” is directed by former WVU Figure Skating Club president Angela Kreger.
Current WVU Figure Skating Club President Gina Geils, as well as Kreger, Caldwell, Adams, and WVU Figure Skating Club founder Alicia Marcucci, coach all of the show’s performers.
The show’s script is written by Mark Brazaitis, a professor in the Department of English and the WVU Figure Skating Club’s faculty advisor.
“I hope my script will be entertaining,” Brazaitis said. “But what will be most entertaining — and impressive — about the show is the performances of the club’s exceptional athletes.”
The Morgantown Ice Arena is located at 1001 Mississippi Street, near White Park.
