MEMORIES OF THE RAT PACK is a celebration of the lives and music of the three most famous members of The Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. In two 50 minute acts divided by one intermission, we learn about the men behind the legend, enjoy 30 of their more popular songs, and experience a recreation of the famous night club act at The Sands Hotel in Las Vegas.

Act One opens with an ensemble rendition of Sinatra’s Witchcraft, followed by a brief explanation of the birth of The Rat Pack. We are then treated to Frank Sinatra singing I’ve Got You Under My Skin, and I’ve Got The World On A String, and we learn about Sinatra’s roots on the streets of Hoboken, New Jersey, as well his special crooning style and popularity with the ladies.

Dean Martin then sings You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You, and That’s Amore, and we learn about his younger days in Ohio, his early boxing career, and his minor success on the New York club circuit.

We are then introduced to Sammy Davis Jr. who sings You Can’t Take That Away From Me, Mr. Bojangles, and Black Magic. We learn that Sammy Davis Jr. is considered the greatest entertainer of all time. The consummate variety artist, he was a singer, an actor, a dancer, and a musician… for more follow the ticket link.
