One of the most famous and beautiful streets in the World - Rodeo Drive, was closed and a portable rink
approx. 40ftX60ft was put up at the Wilshire Blvd end.. Three tons of crushed ice were hosed down by water for
24 hours, until a beautiful ice surface was created. About 1,000 seats (VIP, reserved, bleachers) were
installed. Of course many more watched from the windows of nearby buildings. The price for the tickets were
till US$250. The show was sold out! Professional lighting and sound was installed all around the rink. The ice
was beautifully illuminated. Famous Hollywood actress Catherine Hicks introduced the show.
First up was "Star-Pasha and Cast", a nice ensemble number. Skating to 'Carol of the Bells'.
Members included: Lucinda Ruh, Surya Bonaly, Lu Chen, Scott Williams, Travoti & Witherby and "special guest" eight years old Marina Guterres - who won a competition to skate with Pasha!
Next was "Lucinda Ruh", skating to 'Piano Concerto #1'. Great spins and combinations of same. The "City of Angels Ice Theatre" (eight local female skaters) performed to 'Les Patineurs'.
"Surya Bonaly" performed a nice program to "Anastasia" (complete with backflip!) and "Lu Chen" (looking
great in a white shiny and fur lined costume !) vamped her way thru 'Santa Baby!'
Next was "Scott Williams" who 'barrel-rolled' his way thru 'Let it Snow.' Then a long time pro couple, "Lia
Travoti & Russ Witherby" skated to 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.'
Next up was "eight year old Marina Guterres" who cried when chosen, as Pasha is her "inspiration" - and she
was absolutely "thrilled" to be skating with Ice Angel Pasha!
She skated to 'Somewhere in My Memory' - very cute!!! Then the Star of the show emerged again, Pasha
skated to "Magic". This was a very special routine that she put together with Cindy Stuart. Spending hours too
with a professional magician from Los Angeles' Magic Castle. The routine involved Marina Guterres again. Pasha skated a number of solo moves: including amazing footwork, spins, spirals and beautiful
body/handwork, solo and with Marina!!!! The finished TV shots are incredible!. Pasha's hair and makeup was
specially done by Jose Eber salon of Beverly Hills. Pasha wore a newly made outfit - mostly pink, with
scarves and lots of sequence! The end of Pasha's routine involved making a 'white Dove' appear (by magic!)
to be released into the night......... Of course the audience loved Pasha very much and gave her a great applause!
Next "Rick Alexander" skated to 'Waltz of the Flowers/Jingle Bells Rock'. Finally Santa Claus and Marina
appeared skating to'Sleigh Ride', followed by the entire ensemble and cast. Last to appear was once more Ice
Angel Pasha.......who skated some more great moves to the delight of the guests!!!! The lights of the City of
Beverly Hills were then turned on by the Mayor. The skaters and their VIP guests were treated to a champagne
reception at Tiffany's on Rodeo Drive - complete with little Xmas gifts!!! This show was televised and will be shown on local cable TV.
