The Pawtucket and Providence Figure Skating Club will be hosting a sendoff show for Ocean State Ice Theatre on Saturday, April 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Providence College's Schneider Arena. 

OSIT is a competitive theatre on ice (TOI) team, currently in its 12th season, and features more than a dozen talented young figure skaters.

Nations’ Cup is held every two years in various host countries. Teams are selected in four divisions and travel from Russia, Mexico, Ukraine, France, Germany, and the United States.
