In March, Canadian women's skaters Kaetlyn Osmond and Gabrielle Daleman made history winning silver and bronze at the world figure skating championships in Helsinki, Finland.
On Friday, Halifax fans will be able to see the two athletes skate as part of the cast of Stars on Ice, bringing the annual skating spectacular to the Scotiabank Centre.
The cast for this year's show also features a quartet of Canadian men who have won world titles: three-time world champion and reigning nine-time Canadian champion Patrick Chan, four-time world champion Kurt Browning, three-time world champion Elvis Stojko and 2008 world champion Jeffrey Buttle.
Lighting up the rink are Canada's reigning gold medallist pairs skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford, who won back-to-back world titles in 2015 and 2016, national silver medallists Lubov Iliushechkina and Dylan Moscovitch, who won bronze at the 2017 Four Continents figure skating championships, and Julianne Séguin and Charlie Bilodeau, 2015 world junior silver medallists.
Tickets start at $25 and are available at Stars on Ice, by phone at 902-451-1221 or 1-877-451-1221, at participating Atlantic Superstores and the Ticket Atlantic box office in the Scotiabank Centre. On-ice seating is available.
Halifax is the first stop on a 12-city national tour that wraps up in Vancouver on May 18.
Buttle, an in-demand choreographer on the competitive circuit, is also director and choreographer for this year's tour.
World Vision is the official charity.
