Have an ice night at the theatre

Skating to success
Skating to success

Slip slide your way to MK Theatre from Tuesday, and enjoy a dynamic and atmospheric performance...on the cold stuff!

Robin Cousins’ Ice –The Skating Stage Experience promises to redefine ice skating for a new generation.

“The show is not an adaptation of a ballet, or borrowed from the world of musical theatre,” Robin explains.

“There are no judges, just the audience. It is a show where the choreography is driven by the music, where the movement has room to breathe, and the skaters can let their blades do the talking.

“To be able to movelike a skater is every dancer’s dream.

“To be motionless, yet travelling at great speed. Skaters are able to soar across the frozen stage in ways a dancer can only dream of doing.”

And with the Olympic champion turned head judge on Dancing on Ice, which ran for a decade, at the helm, this show is slicker than your average, as some might say.

Robin has hand-picked an awesome bunch of skaters plucked from around the globe to bring this sensational show to life.

And he is naturally thrilled with this new creation.

“It’s been 30 years since I created Electric Ice which took to the theatrical stage and changed the look of ice shows,” Robi n continued.

“I am very excited to bring the daring and dazzling world of figure skating back into an intimate theatrical setting.”

Directed and choreographed by Robin and with a soundtrack of original music and reworked modern classics, Ice will be on stage at MK Theatre until Saturday, April 12.

Tickets start at £10 and rise to £35.

Showtime is 7.30pm nightly, with additional matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
