Hello Showtime Family,
First and foremost – we hope you are all safe. We are all trying to navigate the changing landscape of daily living during these unprecedented times.
We have been monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation and recommendations from USFS, the CDC, State, Local and Federal Governments. Over the past few days, we have been working with SSPRD and both CSC and DFSC on the rapid changes affecting us all.
As of now, Showtime on Ice will be postponing the 2020 production until June. The rinks are juggling ice schedules and events at the moment and they will need some time before they give us a date. We are hoping to have that in the next week.
We are grateful to SSPRD management for working with us to find a new date – as canceling the show would be devastating to our skaters.
We know that this change will affect some of our families and we will do our best to field questions once we have a solid date. Like many of you, we are working on getting our college kids home, canceling Spring Break trips, adjusting to new work and school environments, gathering supplies and trying to ease the anxiety and uncertainty that our kiddos are experiencing.
We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through these changes.
In the meantime, here is what we can tell you:
- We will be sending out weekly updates
- The March costume fittings are cancelled
- Once we have a date, we may have an accelerated rehearsal schedule
- We will not know the status of our guest skaters until we have new dates
- We will get through this and have the best show ever!
ITEMS ELIGIBLE FOR REFUNDS (We ask that you do not initiate or inquire about refunds until the new dates have been announced.)
- Apparel – We are holding our apparel order until May
- Tickets – If you are unable to attend performances on the new dates, we will issue refunds.
- Skater Ads
We’re all in this together! We have an amazing community of skaters, coaches and parents. We will get through this and we are grateful that we still have a chance to celebrate a 2020 opening night.
Stay safe and as soon as we have dates on the calendar, we will let you know.

We are thrilled to announce that the 2020 US National Pairs Silver Medalists are guest skaters at this years show! They recently placed fourth at Four Continents in Seoul, South Korea.
He’s back! We are happy to announce that Ryan Bradley will be joining us once again as Emcee of the show. Although Ryan officially retired from competitive skating in May 2011, he gives back to the sport he so dearly loves. He has spent recent years serving as a figure skating commentator, clinic director, touring performer, and coach. (photo credit – Tamara Valdez)
