In 1991, the Canadian branch of the show was launched.
Stars on Ice is a touring figure skating show produced by IMG. It was originally conceived in 1986 as
a vehicle for IMG client Scott Hamilton, who had been let go from his contract with Ice Capades, after being told that male
skaters do not sell tickets. Hamilton now has retired from regular touring with the show, but continues to be actively involved
as a producer.
Stars on Ice was originally conceived as an ice show for adults, without the skating Smurfs or cartoon
characters typical of other commercial ice shows of the period, like Disney on Ice. The show has consistently featured a small
cast of elite skaters who perform together in ensembles as well as solo numbers.
The tour began on a shoestring budget,
playing only a few dates in small-town arenas. 1986-1987 was the first year for Stars on Ice. In 1992, IMG bought out the
rival "Skating" tour from Bill Graham Presents and merged its resources with that of Stars on Ice. One of the acquisitions
from the "Skating" tour was Sandra Bezic, who took over as choreographer and director of Stars on Ice for several years. In
recent years, Jef Billings has assumed the position of director. Throughout its history, the tour has received 4 Emmy Awards
and the 1994 ACE Cable Award for Best Sports Special.
Stars on Ice tours the United States, Canada, Japan, and Korea
on a yearly basis, and has also staged shows in Europe, Brazil, and Mexico. The 2011 tour was its 25th season.
U.S. show featured skating champions Evan Lysacek and Sasha Cohen, and brought back former skating stars Kurt Browning and
Todd Eldredge, who had skated with the tour for the past several years, as well as former pairs star Ekaterina Gordeeva, who
has been out of the touring circuit for several years, skating as a singles skater.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary
of Stars on Ice, the show featured group numbers set to hip hop and 50's sock hop themes, and included a Sasha Cohen number
set to Liza Minnelli's "Mein Heir" from "Cabaret," in addition to a hip hop pairs number from Salé and Pelletier, and
a tango number from Belbin and Agosto. For the 25th anniversary show, the Twin Cities show included appearances by Scott Hamilton
(on the ice) and Kristi Yamaguchi (off the ice).
Stars on Ice was also the name of an ice show held at the Center Theatre
in New York City in the early 1940s. The show was produced by Arthur Wirtz and Sonja Henie. Stars on Ice was also a television
series, broadcast from 1976 to 1981 on the CTV Television Network in Canada, hosted by Alex Trebek (1976–1980) and later,
Doug Crosley (1980–1981).
