Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show will take the main stage on Sunday, October 27 at 3:00 p.m.
Sunday’s show takes audiences back to the 1960s when Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop, known as the Rat Pack, ruled the Las Vegas Strip. They were style with substance, swing with swagger, and a non-stop party that everyone wanted to access. This acclaimed theatrical production features Sandy Hackett (Buddy Hackett’s son) and includes great arrangements of the classic songs everyone knows and loves, including “That’s Amore,” “For Once in My Life,” “Luck Be a Lady,” and “Mack the Knife.”
Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show is sponsored by Kingston Residence of Marion and supported by Ohio Arts Council. Tickets: $22-$30.
