Spectators are advised to dress warmly and bring a blanket for the coolest show in town this weekend.

The Dunedin Ice Skating Club will present three performances of Alice in Winterland at the Dunedin Ice Stadium.

More than 150 skaters, ranging in age from 3 to 65, will take part in the annual ice spectacular, at 4pm on Saturday and 1pm and 3.30pm on Sunday.

''It's Alice in Wonderland with a bit of a twist. There are a lot of amazing costumes and characters, like adults dressed up as caterpillars,'' co-director Ashleigh Black said yesterday.

''Skating is not all about competitions. It's also about telling a story for others to enjoy. The skaters love the opportunity to express their creativity, as well as their skating skills.''

The Snow Queen will be played by five-time New Zealand champion Morgan Templeton, while New Zealand representative Zara Anthony-Whighan (12) will play Alice.

Alice in Winterland follows Alice on a journey through a magical winterland, in which she meets the Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the March Hare and a menagerie of flamingoes, hedgehogs and other fantastic creatures.
