The show critics are calling “extremely strong and hugely entertaining” kicks off its ninth season in Conway, as Sandy Hackett’s RAT PACK CHRISTMAS takes the stage at Reynolds Performance Hall on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Enjoy those swingin’ RAT PACK tunes along with all your Christmas favorites in this fun, entertaining and touching holiday show, “Someday at Christmas with Sandy Hackett’s RAT PACK.” The show will include classic songs written by legendary songwriter, Ron Miller — and shares the holiday spirit in festive RAT PACK style!

RAT PACK CHRISTMAS is a fun, nostalgic, musical trip down memory lane featuring Sandy Hackett as Joey Bishop, Lisa Dawn Miller as Ava Gardner, Angelo Babbaro as Frank Sinatra, Kenneth Jones as Sammy Davis, Jr. and Tom Wallek as Dean Martin.   The theatrical, musical production will be packed full of RAT PACK favorites as well as memorable holiday tunes including “Come Fly With Me,” “Luck Be a Lady,” “My Favorite Time of Year” and many more.

Sandy Hackett’s father, legendary comedian Buddy Hackett was great friends with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop. Having a close personal connection to these iconic legends allowed the producers of RAT PACK CHRISTMAS to tell the story like no one else and perform in a way that makes you feel as if you have stepped back in time. Producer, Lisa Dawn Miller, has her own personal connection to the RAT PACK. Her father, legendary songwriter Ron Miller, wrote “For Once in My Life” and many other huge hits. Together, Hackett and Miller have created a truly amazing and authentic theatrical production that captures all the love, friendship and laughter of the RAT PACK legacy.
