Stars on Ice in Lake Placid Friday, Dec. 30

CHRISTIE SAUSA, Special to the News

LAKE PLACID - As is tradition, Stars on Ice presented by Smuckers will once again be gliding into Lake Placid for their first tour. Unlike past years, though, Stars on Ice will be performing a month later than usual. Formerly the show kicked off its tour during Thanksgiving weekend in Lake Placid; this year, however, they are performing the evening of Friday, Dec. 30 at the Olympic Center.

"We had experienced some scheduling conflicts during the month of November and decided to give December a try, since we knew that Christmas week was one of the busiest weeks of the year in Lake Placid", said Stars on Ice Producer Byron Allen.

The date is not the only change; this year four -time World Champion & four-time Canadian National Champion Kurt Browning will not only be performing, but choreographing the show. Although mostly known for his own skating, Browning has choreographed for the likes of 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek, 2011 World Champion Patrick Chan, and two-time National Champion Jeremy Abbott. Now Browning will choreograph the entire Stars on Ice show, and is excited about the prospect of the new opening show date.

"I'm looking forward to seeing all of the familiar faces, along with our fans that have never been able to come out to the performance in the past due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We're all excited to help Lake Placid bring in the New Year with a little Stars On Ice skating fun," Browning said.

The cast this year will be a mix of former cast members and new ones. Kurt Browning will be headlining the show, along with favorite Sasha Cohen as well as the reigning National Champion Ryan Bradley. Known for his showmanship and new to the show this year, Bradley is excited to be part of the Stars on Ice cast.

"This is my first season with Stars on Ice and I am ecstatic to finally be here. It has been a childhood dream of mine to perform with Stars on Ice and I can't believe it's coming true. I can't wait to perform alongside this all-star cast, headlined by Kurt Browning."
