CONWAY — The University of Central Arkansas will feature Broadway on Ice at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 21, in the Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall.

Broadway on Ice is a unique show that is unlike anything that has ever been brought to Reynolds,” Director of Public Appearances Amanda Horton said. “The audience won’t want to miss the opportunity to see amazing skaters and talented musicians perform the great hits of Broadway.”

The show will mark the first time that Reynolds has ever been turned into an ice-skating rink.

“The stage will literally be made into an ice skating rink for the performers,” Horton said. “We will even have the Steinway grand piano on ice. It is a very technically challenging show with the building of the ice set.

The event is sponsored by 501 Life magazine.

According to, the show features a dazzling international “All Principal” cast, guest stars, singers and pianists. Broadway on Ice features 16 individuals, including lead vocalists Davis Gaines and Ira Lauren. The show was conceived by Willy Bietak, who also serves as the producer. Broadway on Ice has featured such figure-skating champions as Dorothy Hamill, Nancy Kerrigan and Brian Boitano as well as famous Broadway singers such as Franc D’Ambrosio, Gaines, Leslie Uggams and Deborah Gibson.
