Jessica Robinson is the Theater on Ice Director chose to bring this performance to the Kansas City community. With busy schedules during the end of the year, families don’t always have time to enjoy the season, which is why we’ve scheduled the performance within the first weeks of December. The Cable Dahmer Arena is the only facility in the Kansas City-area hosting a Nutcracker-inspired Theater on Ice performance.

The performance is just over an hour and features the classic characters we’ve all known and loved as children. The story of the Nutcracker is loosely based on the E.T.A. Hoffman’s fantasy story of the Mouse King and a young girl who befriends a Nutcracker who comes to life on the Eve of Christmas. The Nutcracker wages a battle against the Evil Mouse King and a series of transformations, snowflakes and maidens who beautifully glide across on ice. It is Heartland Figure Skating Club’s largest productions with over 70 skaters. A production of this size doesn’t happen overnight and not without a team of coaches and hundreds of hours of preparation. The coaching team is led by Robinson and includes Gabriella Horn, Tatum Nachtrab, Grant Huang, Bonnie Lewis, and Carrie Green-Heaphy.

The 2022, The Story of the Nutcracker on Ice feature cast includes skaters across the greater Kansas City-area.
