WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- Dream big! That’s the theme of a magical show happening this weekend in Luzerne County.
Performing in front of thousands of people may seem like a dream come true. And for Sasha Kowal and Chelsea Ridley, that dream has some true, as they are touring cast members with Disney on Ice.
“I love traveling, I love being able to perform at these large arenas and bring joy to everyone,” said Ridley. “Just seeing the kid’s faces light up when they see us is amazing.”
“I love being able to skate, I’ve been doing this since I was little,” said Kowal. “I really like being able to bring Disney magic to to everyone’s hometown, that’s something that’s really special.”
Both achieved their dream through hard work and a lot of practice.
Kowal got her start at regional ice skating rinks. She’s from Northampton County, a Nazareth native, and has been living her dream for 14 years. She hopes her story can inspire others.
“It is great to be able to reach out in my own community and see and bring so much love and joy to so many people in my hometown,” she said.
If you’d like to catch a show, performances are taking place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Township. There’s a show Friday at 7 pm; Saturday at 11 am, 3 pm, and 7pm; Sunday at 12 pm and 4 pm; and Monday at 12 pm.
