“I am really excited to be bringing back ‘Halloween on Ice,’” said two-time Olympic medalist Nancy Kerrigan. “As a mother of three, I know firsthand that Halloween is one of the most anticipated days of the year for families. Our show will help get everyone in the Halloween spirit, and our amazing cast will provide a combination of skating, costumes, and music that people don’t normally associate with our sport.”

“Halloween is a great family tradition, so it was really important to me to make tickets affordable for the whole family,” said Kerrigan. “With this great group of stars, we hope to show a whole new side of skating to fans across the country. Watching Olympic, World, and National champions skate in costume is unique as they take on characters that you would never see in competition. I hope to see you all at the show.”
“Halloween on Ice” debuted at the Boston Garden in 1995, and over the years, it has played to live and television audiences across the country. In addition to two-time Olympic medalist Kerrigan, the show, produced by StarGames, has featured such skating superstars as Scott Hamilton, Kurt Browning, Surya Bonaly, Liz Manley, Todd Eldredge, Brasseur and Eisler, Philipe Candeloro, Paul Wylie, and more. This year’s show, which will be co-produced by Rooftop2 Entertainment, promises a new storyline and new effects.
“We have tried to create something that allows the skaters to use their imagination and present themselves in ways that are challenging for them and entertaining for family audiences,” said StarGames President and Executive Producer Jerry Solomon, who is also married to Kerrigan.
