A little bit extra What’s exciting is that when you come to see Hot Ice you get a pass to visit to the Pleasure Beach and see the dancing fountain show, ride the Pleasure Beach Express, see the learning garden, go in the maze, or upgrade to a ride wristband. So it offers audiences something extra that you wouldn’t get if you were to go and see show in a town or somewhere else. Over the past 20 to 30 years I have produced shows all over the world with my company Stageworks Worldwide Productions. I started my career producing ice skating shows in America, worked for 13 years with Europa-Park, four years at Siam Park in Thailand, I’ve taken tours all over the UK and Europe. It’s great to be able to do things like that, although I don’t get chance to do it everyday.


How do I still find time to do Hot Ice? Well there are 24 hours in a day! I am here at 6 ‘o’ clock in the morning when we are doing the shows, I do all my e- mails and have my meetings with the engineering team between 6 and 8, and then I start rehearsals at 8.30 and finish anywhere between 7.30 and 9.30 in the evening. During the day I hold other meetings, I have a telephone, I have e-mail, and I have a lovely iPad that works very well. And I can manage to do two things at once because I am a woman!
