Bring the kids, and enjoy the beauty and skill that is ice skating with the world’s premier theatrical ice skating company, The Imperial Ice Stars, when they return to South Africa with a brand-new show Peter Pan on Ice this December. Take a journey to Neverland in this classic tale of magic and make-believe, spectacularly staged on real ice.
Meet Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, Wendy and of course the cute as a button Tinkerbell as they adventure through Neverland and encounter Captain Hook and of course poor Tick-Tock the crocodile and many more!

About The Imperial Ice Stars
44 people tour with the show including performers, technicians and a doctor with a further 17 people required in each venue.
6 languages are spoken on tour, with rehearsals and notes being given mainly in Russian and the backstage crew speaking mainly in English.
The performers rehearse 9 or more hours a day, 6 days a week, for 7 weeks to pull the show together, and they rehearse for 3 hours each day before the show.
There have been 5 weddings and 3 babies from people who have met whilst on tour with the Imperial Ice Stars.
25 pairs of skates and 50 sets of blades are carried with the troupe on tour.
To freight, the whole show is approx. 25,000kg or equivalent of 70 grand pianos.
14 tonnes of ice are created in the production – the same weight as nearly 3 elephants.
2,500 litres of anti-freeze is used – enough to fill 100 car cooling systems.
The ice reaches temperatures of minus 15 degrees C, three times colder than your household freezer.
They use 15km of pipes underneath the ice rink to distribute the anti-freeze.
In a theatre, the ice rink takes over 140 man-hours to build but only 30 man-hours to dismantle.
