About the Nutcracker On Ice

The Snow Queen 2011 played by Allie Rosemann

Show History - This version of Nutcracker on Ice was first performed in Rockford, IL in 1996. It was created and conceived by Sharon Whitlock (our director’s mother) to give skaters the opportunity to perform this classic, timeless story of The Nutcracker, one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous and beloved pieces of music. Sharon also wanted the public to have the chance to see The Nutcracker in a unique way—on ice! The show was produced for eight years in Rockford, IL and over those years involved hundreds of skaters and thousands of audience members. In addition, each year the show hosted a food drive to make the holidays a little easier for those who were less fortunate. Because of this, skaters not only had a fun experience skating in the show, but also learned the importance and gratification in giving to others.

The show was brought to St. Louis in 2005 by Sharon’s daughter Charity, who moved to St. Louis to attend Saint Louis University. The first year was an overwhelming success! With two shows completely sold out and with little more than a week prior to the shows a third show was added to accommodate the amount of people who wanted to see this beautiful performance! Since that year, the show has continued to grow in every aspect. Each year we have had more skaters, more audience members, more food donations (yes, we continued the food drive), bigger sets, better costumes! The growth would not have been possible without the dedication of many skaters, coaches, parents, and volunteers! We hope to continue our growth with another successful year!

Our hope is that everybody who is involved in the show or sees the show is somehow touched by the magic of the story! Whether you are a skater in the show, volunteering for the show, or attending the show, we are confident that you will have a rewarding experience and be glad that you had a part in this amazing production!
