Here's a nice local article about the shows taking place today and tomorrow: http://www.illinoistimes.com/Springfield/article-8474-spotlight-on-ice.html

Besides featuring great choreography and music, Spotlight on Ice serves as a showcase for local skating talent. Barbie Long will perform the role of Dorothy Gale in the Wizard of Oz. Barbie is the Upper Great Lakes Novice Ladies Regional Champion as well as U.S. National Novice Ladies Silver Medalist. Another talented local skater, Gracie Gold, will perform as Sandy in Grease. Gracie is the Upper Great Lakes Junior Ladies Champion and placed sixth at the Midwestern Sectionals. Also performing are two up-and-coming skaters, Lauren Marines and Connor Icenogle, who both represented the Upper Great Lakes Region in the Junior Championships in Salt Lake City.

As this year’s guest skater, Springfield is lucky to welcome 2010 Olympic competitor and two-time U.S. Men’s National Champion, Jeremy Abbott. Skating since the age of two, Jeremy made his first U.S. Nationals appearance in 2002 and won his first national title in 2005. Jeremy qualified for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver by winning his second national title earlier last year. Jeremy has made numerous TV appearances. He’s a big deal.

Not listed on the Skate Canada appearance page since he's not a team member any longer, but Elvis Stojko is scheduled to skate in the show at CPA St-Romuald on April 2, I believe.
