The Terrace Skate Club (TSC)  is celebrating its 40th anniversary concert in a big way, as it gets ready to put a twist on Alice In Wonderland On Ice.

Skaters have started rehearsing, costumes are rented and tickets are now on sale, says Jennifer Kuehne, director of the concert, who noted the TSC hasn’t put on a show this large in about five years.

“The costumes are amazing, Kuehne said, adding that skaters as young as three to the club’s top performers will all be taking part in the concert.

This will include more than 50 skaters from the TSC, comprising of skaters from the Tot Skate, Can Skate, Pre-Junior, and Star Skate Junior and Senior level figure skaters.

Also performing will be coaches Kelsey Minhinnick and Rayven Algor.

“This concert is a mix of the classic Alice in Wonderland and some twists on the original,” Kuehne said.

“The reason we call it a twist is it’s some of the original music and then some more current music mixed in,” she explained.

The show will take place in the Terrace sportsplex main arena Friday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 4 at 1 p.m.

The arena concession will be open and the Terrace Skating Club  will be selling cotton candy and raffle tickets for door prizes.

Tickets for the show can be purchased in advance from Chills Ice Cream Shop, All Seasons Source for Sports, TSC members or at the door.
