"CHRISTMAS IN AUSTIN" A HUGE SUCCESS!

Chaparral's Christmas show, "Christmas in Austin," was based on a song by Austin singer/composer/producer Shelley King. We were honored to have Shelley and her family attend the performance as our special guests, in addition to the more than 400 audience members who enjoyed the show. "Christmas in Austin" included an on-ice stage, a light show, a live choir, ballerinas, and a Championship Irish dancer. We'd like to extend our deepest thanks to all the volunteers, skaters, coaches, parents, and guest performers who helped make the evening such a success!
