A new key visual came out for the One Piece on Ice ice show. We also now know what part of the series the ice show will cover, which is the Alabasta arc, as well as dates. You will be able to watch it in Yokohama during August 2023. After that, the show will be available in Nagoya in September 2023. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
『ONE PIECE ON ICE』
〝エピソード オブ アラバスタ〟に決定しました。

The key visual shows Luffy on a pair of ice skates. Eiichiro Oda, who is both the creator and mangaka for One Piece, was the one who drew it. The One Piece on Ice ice show will adapt the “Episode of Alabasta,” or One Piece Movie: The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta. This movie came out in 2007 and is essentially a re-telling of the Alabasta arc with a few differences. For example, Smoker, Tashigi, and Ace do not appear in the movie. This means that the three of them might not be part of the ice show.
In early March 2023, news came out of a figure-skating show based on the One Piece franchise. This is the very first time that there has been an ice show for it. That might be why the staff chose to adapt Alabasta, which was the first major story arc in the series. Time will tell if there will be future One Piece figure-skating shows adapting other arcs.
One Piece on Ice will be in Yokohama in August 2023 and then Nagoya in September 2023. More concrete dates and ticket prices will appear in the near future.
