zebraswan, if memory serves, the show appears on Canadian tv around Christmas and again in early April (at least this is what has happened in the past).
Glad you enjoyed Scrufflet! I think I almost had the entire cast in my lap at one point or another during the night. Our seats were on the side not far from the tunnel where they all come this year as opposed to one of the ends and what a better view. Hope you have a blast at the TO show!
Does anyone know how the meet-and-greets are supposed to work? I know you pick up the pass at the box office and then they're held after the show? But does anyone know if you're just supposed to hang around the arena or if there will be a designated area to go to? If anyone goes to one and knows and could let the board know? That'd be great!
In my seat in Ottawa waiting for the show to start. Sounds like I have a great show to look forward to!
You're so welcome, midori! Glad you enjoyed it! XX
I just got back from the Ottawa show. Well, a couple of hours ago. It was great! The last one I attended was in 2012 and it was fine, but this one was even better (it could be because I got to sit about four rows from the ice, whereas in 2012 I was up in the second level). All of the numbers were good, but I enjoyed Shawn Sawyer's the most, I have to say. I have to give kudos to Kurt for still skating well when the rest of the cast is so much younger than him, lol. They picked great music this time too.
It sounds like you may get a different experience but I would strongly suggest that you call the box office or whoever you ordered your pass from and get the details so that you won't miss out on any part of the experience.
In case someone can go to this tomorrow!

Just an FYI for anyone interested... my SOI Halifax review has been updated with wonderful pictures by photographer Dave W. Carmichael replacing the blurry shots from my iPhone (I'm no photographer!): http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2014/...alifax-ns.html
I enjoyed the show very much.
Though I have to say the ladies' number lived up to its name - I found it creepy.
In regards to the meet and greet, it's very different this year. They're all being held after the shows this time around, I know what to do in terms of how to pick up my pass. I just don't know what to do or where to go after the fact so I was hoping someone here would know.
My seats are in section 102, row 13. I like to be a little higher up to see the whole ice surface. I really am looking forward to this year's show, partly because I really enjoy all the current Canadian skaters who are performing, and partly because I realize that we're likely only going to be able to enjoy Kurt's performances for a certain length of time before he hangs up the skates. I haven't been for about five years -- it should be great!
Haunting the Princess of Pink since 20/07/11...
Sitting at centre ice, 3rd row. I always come on my own and get great seats (sat next to Sonia and the kids two years ago) but my ten year old has been begging me to take her so it may be my last chance to have such a great view. Am I being selfish?
We are so lucky in Canada to get such a fantastic cast! The quality of everything, including the group numbers, was amazing. Kaetlyn fell a couple times, once on a jump (she bounced right back up), the other time for no reason in a group number but laughed it off. Nam was the guest skater and did a great job in front of coach Brian Orser, who came in after the break and went to sit in the stands to get a better view a few rows behind me. Nam is such a performer that it looked out of place when he decided to go for a long entry into what I assumed was a triple axel attempt (which he singled). I was amused that he had tried it at all given performance lighting, then he surprised everyone by going to the other end of the rink, stalking it again, and nailing it! He did deserve applause for that one Exhibition rules though, if you are going to break the momentum to stalk a jump you had better be sure to land it. Good for him to get it out there once again under pressure.
