Take a trip back in time to the glamour and glitz of Las Vegas in the 1950s and early 1960s as the Rat Pack at Christmas plays the Congress Theatre on Tuesday, December 23.
Bask in festive nostalgia as monumental hits such as The Lady is a Tramp, Mr Bojangles, New York, New York, My Kinda Town, Fly me to the Moon, Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime and Volare made popular by the original Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin, are brought to life in this outstanding production.
Get into the spirit of the festive season with their special renditions of classic Christmas favourites such as Baby it’s Cold Outside, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Let it Snow, Let it Snow, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland & Auld Lang Syne.
In its heyday, the Sands Hotel was the very height of Las Vegas sophistication and featured the best entertainers at the time such as Sinatra, Davis Jr. and Martin. From then they were famously known as the Rat Pack. Las Vegas was their playground and everywhere else was considered, in Rat Pack vocabulary, as ‘Dullsville, Ohio’.
Frank, Sammy & Dean were a force to be reckoned with, an inexhaustible energy that is as apparent in their music today as it ever was.
This spectacular production celebrates the incredible singing talent of three world-famous entertainers and performers and some of the finest music and songs that have ever been recorded.
