"Ice Dreams," a live show on ice, is coming to the Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow on June 12 — it will feature 100 young skaters from Long Island in a skating medley as well as Olympic skaters, flying acrobats, ice dancers and hockey playing.
The show tells the story of two little girls who fall asleep and invite the audience into their dreams. Olympic skaters scheduled to be in the show include Gracie Gold, Jeremy Abbott and Polina Edmunds, says Tara Modlin-Maurizi, the show’s executive producer.
In every locale of the tour — Long Island is its last stop — invitations were previously sent out to area ice skating schools, coaches and rinks inviting young skaters to participate in a seminar on ice with the Olympians there hours before the show. “Then, these skaters perform in a big group number during the show,” says Modlin-Maurizi, who grew up skating in Great Neck and at rinks across Long Island.
Tickets are $39 per person and are general admission at the Ice Center in Eisenhower Park at 200 Merrick Ave. The show starts at 5 p.m. and lasts two hours. Tickets can be purchased at icedreamstour.com. While Nancy Kerrigan is featured on the website, she will not be performing on Long Island, Modlin-Maurizi says.
