'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.
