“It is always a exciting time when the ice skaters come to Hope,” said Amanda Lance, Director of Hempstead Hall & Workforce Development for the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana.

“This year’s storyline will be feature pirates, mermaids, and many other fairytale characters. As always, there will be magic, comedy, stunts, and acrobatics…all on ice on the Hempstead Hall stage.”

The story begins with lots of familiar faces from your favorite fairytales: from Rapunzel and Pinocchio to Aladdin and Tinker Bell — and of course, the star of this season’s spinning tales, the Little Mermaid! The adventure then begins with the most energetic pirate crew you’ll ever meet. Featuring comedy, intense stunts and so much more! Once a storm hits the pirates’ land, the Little Mermaid saves the day, leading the audience on a memorable underwater adventure.

This non-stop thrilling production features over-the-top magical illusions, spectacular special effects, an all-original award-winning soundtrack, thrilling jumps, spins and pair lifts – all on ICE on the Hempstead Hall stage!
