Ice dancing phenomenon The Russian Ice Stars are set to transform the Perth Concert Hall stage into a magical frozen wonderland with Snow White on Ice from Thursday 5 until Sunday 8 February.
The original story of an enchanted mirror, a beautiful girl, the ultimate Prince Charming and a shiny red apple is bought to life on a frozen theatre stage. Featuring a dazzling display of world-class skating, breathtaking aerial aerobatics Snow White on Ice features mesmerising choreography from World, European and Olympic competitors performed on a spectacular set to a wonderful score.
Joining The Russian Ice Stars as the Fairy News Reporter will be one of the country’s much-loved television personalities, Rustie Lee. Renowned for her infectious laughter and effervescent personality the first lady of Caribbean cuisine captured the nations’ heart when she burst on to the breakfast sofa on the set of TV-AM. More recently Rustie has graced our screens on Channel Five’s Celebrity Super Spa, ITV’s award-winning comedy Benidorm, BBC1’s EastEnders and Doctors.
Rustie said; “I’m completely in awe of the incredible talent that The Russian Ice Stars possess. I can’t wait to join the magical journey with the company in January.”
Vee Deplidge of Deplidge UK Productions pioneered the concept of theatre on ice in 1991. By creating ballet on ice productions, designed to fit theatre stages throughout the world they allow audiences an un-paralleled views of stunning skating in the comfort of theatres. Since then, The Russian Ice Stars have performed across the world and were even invited to perform for Prince Rainer in Monaco in honour of the 50th Anniversary of his reign.
Vee said; “While watching an ice show in 1991, I thought how spectacular it would be to combine the speed and danger of skating with the beauty of ballet. I had always loved theatre and transferring it to the ice allows for a new range of movement and a much broader appeal to be added to the traditional interpretation of popular stories. The end result is truly magnificent.”
This spell-binding show promises to sparkle with sheer beauty and elegance that will thrill the whole family.
