The magic of the Rat Pack is heading for Bungay next month.
The Hits of the Rat Pack show will be on stage at the Fisher Theatre on Thursday, September 8, for one night only.
The show pays tribute to the famous performances of Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack and their residence at the Sands Casino, Las Vegas, bringing to life their music and banter in a sophisticated evening of silky-smooth swing and razor-sharp wit.
The Hits of the Rat Pack is fronted by swing singers and brothers Paul and Stephen Amer, who have performed for the Queen at Royal Ascot, for the cast of Downtown Abbey at a wrap-party at Highclere Castle, live on BBC Radio 2 as well as Hampton Court Palace and The Savoy Hotel among other venues.
The company also includes Judy Garland impersonator Ellie Darnell, a live band including brass section and stunning dancing Vegas showgirls, and offers a glimpse into a night at the Sands casino; showcasing the groups humorous banter and skilled and slick musicality of the singers and their backing musicians when the Rat Pack ruled the town.
Hit after hit of Rat Pack classics are included, with original musical arrangements of such favourites as ‘Come Fly With Me’, ‘Have You Met Miss Jones’, ‘Me and My Shadow’, ‘That’s Life’, ‘The Lady is a Tramp’, ‘Mack the Knife’ and ‘New York, New York’ among many others.
