The agency announced that the 22-year-old reigning Olympic champion will introduce her new program during the show.
Organizers are set to install a special ice rink at the gymnasium that can accommodate more than 10,000 people with state-of-the-art audio and video equipment.
“We are preparing for a fantastic ice show,” the agency said in a press release.
“This performance will be the best way for fans and skaters to connect through figure skating.”
Ticket prices and other participants have yet to be determined.
