    The Kentucky Center and PNC Broadway Across America-Louisville proudly present The Rat Pack – Live at the Sands - the hottest and coolest party in town!  After four unprecedented years on London's West End, this acclaimed production vividly recreates a legendary evening at the Sands Hotel with the most famous performers of our time: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin.  Louisville will re-live the excitement of those nights with the Rat Pack, back on stage, at The Kentucky Center, February 26-March 1 for 5 performances only. 

     

    The Rat Pack– Live at the Sands transports the audience to the early 1960’s, when Frank and his pals were filming the original version of the casino robbery caper Ocean’s Eleven in Las Vegas.  The Sands Hotel was featured prominently in the film which included solo performances by Frank, Sammy, and Dean.  The Rat Pack legend was born when Frank and Dean spontaneously joined Sammy on stage and, to the surprise and delight of the audience, playfully interrupted his act.  Subsequent nights, the three of them were on stage together.  There were hi-jinks and horseplay. They crooned, they quipped and they rolled out the gags right along with their on-stage liquor cart. 

     

    Director and Choreographer Mitch Sebastian re-creates the magic that was the Rat Pack on stage.  Performers Stephen Triffitt (Frank), David Hayes (Sammy) and Phil Barley (Dean) evoke all the glamour of that notorious nightclub gig when the audience was glittered with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Judy Garland, Tony Curtis, Sam Giancana and Jack Kennedy.  It’s an evening of wisecracking, hip-cat nostalgia: a cool mix of sharpies and broads singing some of the finest music ever written. 

     

    Set Design by Sean Cavanagh, Vocal and Musical Arrangements by Matthew Freeman, Costume Design by Christopher Woods and Lighting Design by Mark Wheatley.  The U.S. tour is produced by Paul Walden and Derek Nicol for Rat Pack Touring, Ltd., in association with Paul Woolf.

     

    This sensational production celebrates the incredible talents of these three larger than life entertainers – legends in their own time.  There’s a fifteen-piece on-stage big band, and of course, it wouldn’t be The Rat Pack without some fabulous broads: Meet Joanne Dalladay, Lucie Florentine and Nikki Stokes as the beautiful back up singer- dancers, The Burelli Sisters.  Audiences will swing and swoon to the Rat Pack’s signature songs: ‘My Kinda Town’; ‘Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime’; Fly Me to the Moon’; ‘Me and My Shadow’; ‘What Kind of Fool am I’; ‘Mack the Knife’; ‘The Lady is a Tramp’; ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’; ‘That Old Black Magic’; ‘That’s Life’; ‘Mr. Bojangles’; ‘That’s Amore’; ‘Sway’; ‘Volare’; ‘My Way’; ‘New York, New York’; ‘One For My Baby’...
