'97 Winter Carnival Ice Show: Middlebury
Goes to the Movies

Middlebury Goes
to the Movies
was the theme
of the 1997 Middlebury College Winter Carnival Ice Show, performed
last month in the Nelson Arena of the Memorial Field House.

The wonderful show featured 130 skaters from the
College and community---Middlebury friends, colleagues, students
and children---in group and solo roles from well-known films blending
classic and contemporary box office favorites. Guest skater Jessica
Roos, well known to Middlebury audiences, returned for this year's
show, and a dynamic new pair team made their first Carnival Ice
Show appearance. Among the films selected, the show's own Emmy
awards were 101 Dalmatians, Saturday Night Fever, Wizard of
Oz, The Lion King
