Figure skaters spend the first part of their lives practicing tirelessly to perfect jumps and spins in the hope of landing a spot on the Olympic team. Once the dream becomes reality, these skaters enter a world of overly BeDazzled ensembles, bouquet-tossing admirers and cereal-box endorsements. And then comes the invitation to be a part of Smucker's Stars on Ice. Founded by Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton, this tour provides an outlet for professional skaters and those patiently waiting four years for another go at the Winter Olympics. Join the ice queens and kings at 7 p.m. at the Scottrade Center (South 14th Street and Clark Avenue). The celebrity skaters include American darling Sasha Cohen, Jamie Salé, David Pelletier, Todd Eldredge, Xue Shen, Hongbo Zhao and many more from around the world! Purchase tickets for $12.50 to $110 by calling 314-241-1888 or visiting www.ticketmaster.com.
