Stars on Ice is a touring figure skating show produced by IMG. It was founded in 1986 as a vehicle for IMG client Scott Hamilton, the 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist in men’s figure skating.
The production is a theatrical show featuring a small cast of elite skaters who perform together in ensembles as well as solo numbers. Although Hamilton retired from regular touring in 2001, he remains involved as a producer.
Stars on Ice was originally conceived as an ice show for adults, without the skating Smurfs or cartoon characters typical of other commercial ice shows of the period such as Ice Capades or Disney on Ice. It started on a shoestring budget, playing only a few dates in small-town arenas.
