Rat Pack revisited with Christmastime show at McPherson

The music and mirth of Frank, Sammy and Dean in the spotlight Dec. 20

They were like peas in a pod, but in a much more intense, hard-living way.

Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin, known collectively as The Rat Pack, entertained audiences on their own and together for years, and held the spotlight even off the stage, as the public marvelled at their untouchability.

The energy and charisma of the trio returns for a Dec. 20 show at the McPherson Playhouse, as Legends of Rock N Roll presents Christmas with the Rat Pack.

Don’t miss this fun-filled evening of good music, good fun and tom-foolery with Andy DiMino as Dean, Lambus Dean as Sammy and Gary Anthony as Frank, portrayed exactly like the originators did so many years ago.

Showtime for this Thursday night show is 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $55, are available online at rmts.bc.ca or by phone at 250-386-6121.
