Detroit’s Fox Theatre will take a trip back in time this holiday season to join the company of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. for Christmas with The Rat Pack – Live at The Sands during a limited eight performance engagement, Thursday, November 27 through Sunday, December 2; part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series.
Christmas with The Rat Pack – Live at The Sands, will transport audiences to the glamorous, glitzy nights of Las Vegas in the late 1950s and early 60s to celebrate three of the world’s most popular entertainers, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. performing at the famous Sands hotel. Together with the fabulous Burrelli Sisters and The Rat Pack Big Band, the festive show will host seasonal classics including ’Baby it's Cold Outside,” ’Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” ’Let it Snow, Let it Snow,” ’White Christmas,” ’Winter Wonderland”; and the unforgettable Rat Pack hits ’Witchcraft,” ’Mr. Bojangles,” ’I've Got You Under My Skin,” ’That's Amore,” ’Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime,” ’New York, New York,” ’Fly Me to the Moon,” ’Sway,” ’Volare,” ’Me And My Shadow,” ’My Way,” ’Memories Are Made Of This” and many more.
The Sands hotel was the very height of Las Vegas sophistication. It was there in 1960, during the filming of Ocean's Eleven, when for the first time Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford performed together on stage. From then on, they were forever known as the ‘Rat Pack’. Las Vegas was their playground and everywhere else was known, in Rat Pack vocabulary, as ‘Dullsville, Ohio’. Frank, Dean and Sammy were a force to be reckoned with, an inexhaustible energy that is as apparent in their music today as it ever was.
