Description Bob White's "Ice Frolics" at their opening performance at O'Neill Park last night delighted a large audience with the skill of their skating and the spectacular costuming of the performers. A fast moving programme by highly skilled entertainers is always a joy, especially when the humour imparted is clean and crisp.
