MANCHESTER, NH – The Southern New Hampshire Skating Club (SNHSC) returns to the JFK Coliseum on Saturday, March 24, with “Lasting Impressions.” The local skating club’s 53rd annual ice revue takes the audience on a journey through the wax museum, bringing characters, musicians, and world leaders from the past and present to life.
There will be two performances of this multimedia extravaganza, with an afternoon matinee at 1 p.m., and an evening performance at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door, and cost $5 for seniors and children five years old and older. Adults are $8, and children under 5 enter free of charge.
The museum is divided into different “rooms,” with characters, costumes, and lights to add to the experience. Steve Irwin’s cuddly koalas and kangaroos and Walt Disney’s rambunctious 101 Dalmatians are featured in television, while some classics such as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Indiana Jones” are featured films.
Authors from the classics to young adult fiction, including Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, Grammy winners through the ages, and even World Leaders from Ancient Egypt to modern America will take the ice.
Nearly 80 skaters of all ages and abilities from throughout southern New Hampshire are participating in the production, which is complete with lights and elaborate costumes. It is the culmination of a year of hard work and dedication by these athletes, who range in age from 4 years old through adult.
It is suggested that audience members dress warmly! All proceeds go to the volunteer-run skating club to support its Learn to Skate and other ice skating programs.
JFK Coliseum is located at 303 Beech St., Manchester.
