Foremost skaters thrill hundreds r- i y Monday, March SO, 1772 THE UrHBRIDGE HEUAID 3 i V-' By r.EOKK Special FOR.EMOST Announcer Hay Collin called the Foremost Figure Skating Club's third an- nual ice carnival "Ihe biggest little show in southern. Alber- and ho was right. A capacity crowd filled the Foremost arena for more than two hours of fine skating by about 50 youngsters under the direction of coach Mrs. llap (Beth) Bates. It featured Die well known children's television program PufnstuI, set amid fine scenery painted by local artist Ashley Butterwick and designed by Hap Bates. The story centred around Jimmy, the only "human" on the Living Island, played by Clinton Collin, and his search for the Swinging Flute, Prances Karl, captured by Wilchipoo, Theresa Bates, and her cohorts. The program opened with the delightful Waltz of the Trees 14 youngs'jers resplendent in their green tree costumes. They were joined by Frances Karl who gave a confident per- formance as the Swinging Flute, and Jimmy. Witchipoo, aided by Timmy Karl as Seymour and Darre] Kuhl as Dum-Dum, steals the flute, and the search begins. First the grumpy trees run their own brand of interfer- ence, and then JoAnne Hougen as Judy the Frog gave a strong solo performance searching for the flute. Pufastuf played by Gordon Konno had his troubles loo as he tried to keep Cling anc Clang tho two sleepy firemen awake. They were well playec by Roger Rarick and Reid Col lin. The trio brought out the fire engine to put 6ut a fire in the castle, but they literally kept falling down on the job much to the amusement of the large audience.

The clocks, hippie tree ackie Heck, Iho mushrooms and lion Kim Wallman all tried o no avail to find tho missing lute. The flowers, tho spotted lorses, the wcodchucks and Dr. Owl and his friends Book, Can- lie, Stove, Skeleton, Mouse and Bat all skated in the search. Finally Jimmy and the Swinging Flulc wero reunited after a showdown with Witchi- poo and all ended happily. There were many fine per- formances and magnificent cos- tumes in the production, though :he audience was slow to ap- preciate tho skill of the young- sters in the early numbers. Accoustics in the civic centre are not as good as they might be. The production neeeded a stronger story line to carry it to the audience. However, the quality of the skating and pro- duction were superb. The second half of the pro gram featured solo and doubles performances. Debbie Kuhl gave a pel- islied performance with confi- dence, skating to Sounds of Silence. Frances Karl opened the pro- gram witi It's Too Late, con- tinuing where she left ofi in the first half of the program with fine performance, S'JIQ followed by liana c Hougen skating to My House and the River, and a duet bj tho trans Karen and Sharon Walters, Don't be Sad. Theresa Bales gave her inter- pretation of Hey Judc, and young Maureen Collin, skating her first public solo program did well with Last Date. Third year soloist JoAnne Hougen combined with second year Darlene Slacks for a ren- dition of Dommage, Dommage. Dianne Hutsman gave her usual confident performance with I Say a Little Prayer, and this was followed by a fine first time performance from Dirka Begemann who gave one of the smoothest performances of the evening. The duo of Sandra Ondrik and Cindy Sepp gained confidence with every step as Uiey skated in Tjttie Green Apples. Debbie Williams skated to A Man artd a Woman, and anoth- er first year combination was Kary Beacombo and Debbie Nelson with Summer Place. Clinton Collin competently handled Rinky Dink and Steph- anie Sepp performed to Blue Danube. The program conclud- ed with a fine rendition of Love Story by Debbie Kuhl and Gordy Konno. The club showed that they have made enormous strides since their formation three years ago. WATCH!
