I wasn't sure how they would translate the Toy Story 3 movie to ice, but after watching the show, I think they did a fantastic job! There was enough of the movie plot to be familiar, but the choreography and the music made it an excellent ice show. The music chosen was upbeat and fun, and went perfectly with the scenes and the skaters.
One thing that I noticed that was even better than previous shows was the use of lights. The lights helped set many of the scenes and really brought the set to life. At one point, the center of the stage looked like an old-fashioned TV set and during another point, the ice was flooded with rainbows.
The skaters were fabulous. They have so much talent, and athletic skill, that it is fun to watch them skate. There were so many great numbers -- and we all chose different favorite parts when we were talking in the car on the way home. The aliens and the Barbies were definite hits! I'm also amazed at how well the skaters do in the elaborate character costumes.
One thing that I love about these shows is that they are wonderful for all ages! My 4 yo daughter has a great time, but my 9 and 11 yo sons also had fun and laughed and clapped throughout the show. Bo is in Florida for work today, so my mom was able to come with us and she thought it was terrific.
While I was writing this post, my giveaway winner sent me a thank you email. In part, she said:
