COSTUME MEASUREMENTS WILL BE ENTERED IN THE REGISTRATION FORM

Due to Covid restrictions, we will be asking parents to enter their child’s measurements in the registration form. This is something you should complete before you sit down to complete the online form. Click HERE for a video from our seamstress demonstrating how to take the measurements and an illustrated chart. Bonus – no more waiting in long lines during auditions!

PRINT AND SIGN WAIVERS

We have two waivers that will need to be downloaded, signed, and brought to auditions. You will drop them off at skater check-in.


Cost

Each skater will pay a registration fee and will pay the balance in January 2022. Each registration includes ice time for auditions, rehearsals, and our show weekend, the costume(s), a free Showtime 101 seminar for new skaters, a show program and, an autograph session with the guest skaters on the last day of the show.

Testing Information

If you have a skater that is planning on testing at the November 5th test session, here are the guidelines on how to register.

Learn to Skate registrants that are planning on testing for Pre Preliminary before Audition Day. 

  • Learn to Skate families that have skaters planning to test for Pre-Preliminary free skate on the November 5th test session will still register their skater as Learn to Skate/Basic Skills, and at the current level. 
  • There is a question in the registration form where the parent can let us know if the skater is testing and if they would like to be considered to be in both halves upon a successful test. 
  • Showtime on Ice will bill these families the difference after auditions. You will only pay the Learn to Skate rate at registration.  
  • If the skater passes from Learn to Skate/Basic Skills into Pre Preliminary free skate – congratulations! Your skater will attend the Pre Preliminary audition time on Saturday, November 6th (8:05 – 8:35).

Pre-Preliminary registrants or higher that are planning to test before Audition Day. 

  • If you are planning to test up a level (free skate only) you MUST register at your current level, not the level you are testing for. 
  • We will be monitoring the test session and will move all passed tests in our records.
  • If you passed into a new free skate level – congratulations! You will attend the audition time for your NEW level (for example, if you passed from Preliminary into Pre Juvenile, you will attend the Pre Juvenile audition time).

Show Cancellation Policy

During normal show production, a non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration. This non-refundable deposit represents a portion of the entire show fee. All final balances must be paid in full by January 15, 2022. 

  • Payment is collected by PayPal online.
  • Payment may be accepted by personal check if arrangements have been made with our show treasurer PRIOR to Audition Day (November 6, 2021).
  • If the Show is canceled PRIOR to Audition Day (November 6, 2021) – 100% of the show deposit will be refunded.
  • If the show is canceled AFTER Audition Day (after November 6, 2021) – 50% of the show deposit will be refunded.  This is due to the fact that casting takes place immediately after Audition Day and costume order is placed promptly after that date.  A portion of the deposit money is used for marketing, setting up facility contracts, and paying director fees.
  • If the Show is canceled any time after November 30, 2021 – 20% of show registration fees will be refunded.

COVID-19 Disclaimer:

During these unprecedented times, the health and safety of our skating community remain to be of utmost concern as we begin planning and producing the new season of the show.  At this time the Showtime on Ice Committee reserves the right to amend the show policy regarding its format, the number of participants, and the casting process in order to comply with all Federal, State, and Local regulations and any additional public health notices in place for 2021-2022.  Any changes not stated in this document will be advanced to all registered show participants later in the process via email and pre-event announcements. 

Please note that we will abide by all USFS, County, and South Suburban Sports Complex policies regarding mask and Covid protocols. USFS, at this time, requires masks at all USFS sanctioned events. We will therefore require masks at all of our events including auditions, rehearsals, show week, and show weekend. This includes all skaters and spectators in the venue. We will update any and all changes as they happen.
