    Nathan and Evan Lysacek as headliners!
    I'm sure Nathan made quite an impression last year.

    Interesting collection of skaters....Some Oly hopefuls..., and then others that are perhaps on the cusp or too young (Chen, who spends much of his summer training in SV)
    No D/W, nor the Shib Sibs, or Chock/Bates...instead H/D and G/P
    Lysacek and Weir and Bradley (would have preferred to see Ryan at multiple shows)...no Max Aaron, Ross Miner, Jeremy Abbott?
    Alissa...a fixture at SV over the years...wonder if she will be able to jump again....
    and glad to see Kurt as well!

    I was fortunate enough to be living 2.5 hours from Sun Valley in the late 1980's and got to watch Olympic/world class skaters for 3 wonderful summers. Among them- Boitano, Orser (right after the 1988 Olys), Klimova-Ponomarenko, Usova-Zhulin, Debbie Thomas, Caryn Kadavy, to name just a few. In 2002 I made a special trip from Arizona to Sun Valley to watch Berezhnaya-Sikharulidze perform there.

    Sun Valley never fails to have a stellar lineup! Star after star. So much creative talent that has come out of their skating program it's unreal..

    Article that previews the summer shows: http://www.mtexpress.com/index2.php?ID=2005147928
    Excerpt:
    Money talks, and popular music and dancing fill the seats. It’s no wonder Broadway music is the theme of the 2013 Sun Valley Ice Show that debuts Thursday, July 4 with the first of nine performances through Labor Day weekend at Sun Valley Outdoor Ice Rink.

    “We’ll focus on Broadway—“Sing, Sing, Sing,” “All That Jazz,” and a “West Side Story” medley. We’ll add and change through the summer,” said ice show director Scott Irvine.

    The summer shows, choreographed by former world professional skating champ Lori Benton of McCall, feature several up-and-coming headliners that will remind audiences that the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia are nine months away.
    Article about Ryan Bradley joining the cast for most of the summer: http://magicvalley.com/entertainment...4d7b1500a.html
    Excerpts:
    Not only did the St. Joseph, Mo., native headline Sun Valley's July 4 ice show opener, but he will remain with the cast most of the summer.

    "This place is so magical,” he [Bradley] said. “It's outdoors, it's surrounded by this beautiful scenery. You can't help but fall in love with it.”

    This summer's Sun Valley on Ice will feature core artists, including Darlin Baker, Jumpin' Joe Sabovcik, Natalia Zaitseva, Brent Bommentre, Craig Heath and Joel Dear, said Kim Navarro, who skated with Bommentre at the world championships in 2010 before retiring from competition.
    ...
    Bradley will skate two routines, including a spoof on "Harry Potter." Other numbers include hits from such Broadway musicals as "West Side Story" and "Cats."

    And one act will have a fire dance featuring Ashley Clark.
    ...
    "It can't be beat," said skater Jeremy Barrett, former U.S. national champion. "As skaters, we often skate in ice boxes with no windows. It's so good to come back to skate under the stars in a place that's so beautiful. And it must be amazing for the audience as well."
    Surya Bonaly has been added to the July 27th show and Josh Farris to the August 3rd show.

    I used to love going to these shows when I used to live in Idaho. They used to invite many international skaters, not just Americans. I wonder why that's not happening anymore?

    ETA: Just saw the post above mine - Surya Bonaly has been added.

    I don't suppose anyone here went to see the show this past weekend with Kurt, Hubbell & Donohue? Curious to hear about it...

    (With the exception of Surya Bonaly- but IIRC she lives in Vegas?) are they inviting only the North American skaters for the Sun Valley shows now?
