About 70 members of Elk River Figure Skating Club entertained Saturday with their spring show called  “One Skate, Two Skate, Red Skate, Blue Skate.” The Dr. Seuss-based performance was directed by Kristina Anderson, in her first year as director. There were two showings Saturday, each about 90 minutes, filled with colorful characters including Cat in the Hat and Grinch and Who’s and Daisy Head Mayzie. One of the many skating numbers was a father-daughter skate. There were huge Seuss-style backdrops, some of them borrowed from ERHS, which presented “Seussical the Musical” last month.
