The Smucker's Stars on Ice 25th Anniversary Tour Comes to Boston

On March 4th, the 2011 Smucker's Stars on Ice 25th Anniversary Tour came to Boston University's Agganis Arena.  Our entire family of five was able to attend.  None of us had ever had the opportunity to attend a live figure skating show, so we were all both curious and excited.  I knew I would love the show, since I enjoy watching televised figure skating, but I was interested to see what our children (4,4, and 7) would think about the show.

This year's 25th anniversary show is headlined by Evan Lysacek and Sasha Cohen.  Both were amazing, along with the rest of the talented cast who visited us in Boston . . .

I cannot say how impressed I was by all the performances, as well as the music and the lighting effects.  I was moved to near tears two or three times.  As much as I loved the beautifully expressive performances, the lively and upbeat numbers were so much fun.  The show was entertaining enough to keep our three children engaged for the entire two hours.  Our 4 year old daughter was extremely delighted by the "pretty costumes".  My husband said he enjoyed the group performances the most.  I have to say that the group finale in the red costumes was both energetic and powerful.  It was quite a way to end the show, wowing the audience and leaving them no choice but to give the cast a standing ovation.

I am so thankful for my family to have had the chance to see this show.  The best part was that the audience could feel that the skaters were having fun and truly enjoyed performing on the ice.  The Stars on Ice 25th Anniversary Tour will be continuing through the beginning of April.  Tickets start at just $25.  Visit to find out about the Smucker's Family 4 Pack Discount.  Visit to view the tour schedule.
