EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – The Skating Club of Vail will host its annual Holiday Ice Skating Shows this week. Evening shows are slated for both Wednesday and Thursday.

Entitled “One Singular Ice Sensation,” the show is about a young lady’s efforts to make it to the big time on Broadway. The story follows her as she auditions for various plays on the Great White Way. Fans will be treated to fabulous skating, fantastic music and outstanding sets and costumes.

Skaters ranging in age from 3 to 50 will entertain family members of all ages. Skaters from the Vail Recreation District’s StoryTime and Learn-To-Skate programs will participate.

The show features local skating and skiing stand out Kendall Deighan in the lead role. This is Deighan’s last year with the Club before leaving for college next fall.

Two other returning Club skaters and local favorites will also perform: Jenna Bearsto returns after touring with Disney On Ice and Grace Lincenberg also returns for an encore performance.

The show will feature nationally ranking guest skaters.

Thomas Schwappach, 14, a qualifier for U.S. Junior Nationals, has performed in past shows. Schwappach always has fun on the ice and is a crowd favorite.

Joining him will be Jessica Mancini, 15, and Tyler Brooks, 17, the 2011 U.S. Figure Skating National Novice Silver medalists. They train at the Colorado Springs Ice Dance Academy under the direction of Tiffany Dombeck.

Ticket prices are $10 for children under 18, $15 for adults and children 2 and under are free. Showtime is 6 p.m. each night. Shows take place at the John Dobson Ice Arena in Vail, on the free in town bus route.
