I’m always excited to find out about new, unique entertainment for families, even more so when I hear that local kids are part of the production. I’ve noticed — with my kids, anyway — that watching other children display their talent, hard work, and confidence performing in front of an audience resonates with them in a special way. I can almost hear them thinking, “Hey, maybe I can do that, too!” and know they’re dreaming of new possibilities.
One of these very productions is coming up at the end of the month. The Gardens Figure Skating Club in Laurel, Md, is presenting its eighth annual spring show, Beauty and the Beast on Ice. The cast includes local skaters from as young as age 3 to adult, with skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced. Many of the skaters compete in the U.S. Figure Skating system, including national-level artistic, theater on ice, and synchronized skating competitions.
A figure skating portrayal of the classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast on Ice features over 60 skaters performing to music from the 1991 Disney hit movie and the long running Broadway musical adaptation depicting a prince transformed into a beast who risks staying a beast forever unless he receives reciprocated love from a young woman named Belle. The range of ages and skill levels of the cast creates a visually exciting theatrical experience.
There will be four performances of Beauty and the Beast on Ice: March 24 at 1pm and 3:30pm and March 25 at 1pm and 3:30pm at the Gardens Ice House Patrick Arena (13800 Old Gunpowder Road in Laurel). General admission tickets can be purchased online for $11 or at the Gardens Ice House for $10. A limited number of special reserved seats are available for $15. Groups of 10 or more may purchase general admission tickets for $8 per person by inquiring through email@example.com. Under age 3 admitted free.

Long walks at the park! I ‘Liked’ you on FB.
We were without a car all last year , and even though we managed to do some things around town it was challenging with a kid. We just got a car! So I am looking forward to do weekend trips to places we couldn’t access without a car, like Great Falls, Glenn Echo Park, Cabin John, etc.
