A quick look at four "Disney on Ice" skaters.

Carl Linamen

Age: 24

Hometown: Ashville

Look for him as: A starfish in "The Little Mermaid," a beach boy in "Lilo & Stitch" and a pirate in "Peter Pan."

Quote: "Everybody who is in the show has basically put their whole life into skating, but it's worth it. And there are always opportunities to move up, which is great."


Janelle Cogley

Age: 26

Hometown: Erie, Pa.

Look for her as: Atina, Ariel's sister, in "The Little Mermaid," a pirate in "Peter Pan" and an animal shelter staffer in "Lilo & Stitch."

Quote: "The best part of touring with the show is getting to see different cities every week, you never get bored. You get to travel so much, and I have seen so many different places."


Rebecca Vandenberg

Age: 29

Hometown: North Gower, Ont., outside Ottawa

Look for her as: Wendy in "Peter Pan," a beach girl in "Lilo & Stitch" and King Triton's daughter in "The Little Mermaid."

Quote: "As a kid, I grew up with Disney, and I loved it, I loved all the movies, and now I get to be in that world and see it all come to life."


Chris Richardson

Age: 27

Hometown: Cambridge, Ont., outside Kitchener

Look for him as: The adult Simba in "The Lion King" and a beach boy in "Lilo & Stitch."

Quote: "There are 45 skaters and I think 13 nationalities. Everybody gets along so well, we're like a big family."
