Both skaters are Olympic team event bronze medalists and will perform in the 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. shows. Three-time U.S. champion, 1983 World champion and 1984 Olympic silver medalist Rosalynn Sumners will join Abbott and Gold for an encore.

Tickets for “Stars on Aspen Ice” are on sale now at the Wheeler Opera House Box Office by calling 970.920.5770. The two performances include general admission tickets for $35/adults and $20/students. Limited VIP tickets, that include a special reception with the skaters and on-ice seating, are available for $100. The first 10 VIP tickets sold for each of the two shows will be entered into a drawing for an exclusive on-ice photo with the featured skaters. Other VIP drawings include special individual photos and Olympic gifts from Team USA Sochi 2014.

Also returning to Aspen with Abbott is the dynamic ice dance team of Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre. They are two-time U.S. bronze medalists and two-time World team members. They have toured with “Holiday On Ice,” “Broadway On Ice,” The Ice Theatre of New York and the recent 2014 Olympic Team tour of “Stars On Ice.”

Three-time U.S. gold medalist from Denver, Ashley Clark, also returns to the show. She’s the 2011 and 2014 Professional Skaters Virtual Skate Off champion. She has 16 years of experience, starring and performing around the world, and is the only professional female skater to perform a backflip on ice with fire.

Rounding out the talented field of skaters is choreographer and stylist Kelly Cochran Smith, a three-time gold medalist in moves in the field, freestyle and dance, as well as a silver medalist in pairs and international ice dance. She has performed with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and in Europe, with shows directed by Robin Cousins.

Members of the Revolutions Skating Club of Aspen will also be part of the show. They are under the direction of Abbott’s former coaches and club founders, Peggy Behr and Michelle Hocknell, as well as Abbott’s longtime friend, former competitive skater and now a club coach, Taline Isberian.

In conjunction with the show, Abbott is organizing a special silent auction to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research. Abbott’s dad, Danny Abbott, is in full care with end-stage Parkinsons, along with a number of other health issues.
