The film would feature Mayor Joseph Petty playing the role of a city councilor and scenes shot at Birchtree Bread, Worcester Ice Center and within the town hall. Birch Bread This is where Stimpson often sat and wrote the script for the film.
The film has had a few names.
Originally, Stimpson wanted to call the movie “Christmas on the Common”, but later changed to “A Christmas Pirouette”. Now it is marketed under the name “Christmas on Ice”.
The plot revolves around a young woman who manages the town’s ice rink. The mayor, not played by Petty, informs him that the oval will be closed due to budget cuts. Trying to save the oval she falls in love with a hockey player who trains at the Canal District ice center.
