LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – October 15, 2010) – “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” has inked a new three-year deal with the famed Riviera Hotel & Casino at 7 p.m., which debuts Monday, October 25.
The show is also unveiling a new website today, www.SandysRatPack.com.
The Riviera is rich with Rat Pack history, as all its members headlined there over the years, and was also one of the casinos the Rat Pack “HIT” in the 1960 film “Ocean’s Eleven.”
“Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” will run six nights a week (Sundays are dark) in the prime 7 p.m. time slot. Tickets are $49.95 (General Admission), $69.95 (Preferred) and $89.95 (VIP).
Robert Vannucci, President of the Riviera Hotel & Casino, says, “Sandy Hackett’s Rack Pack Show transports audiences to a legendary and radiant place in time. The Riviera was a part of that era then, and is thrilled to continue the tradition with this much-anticipated debut.”
The critically-acclaimed show is produced by Sandy Hackett, a powerhouse veteran writer/producer/actor, along with his wife, producer/singer/songwriter Lisa Dawn Miller, daughter of the late legendary Motown songwriter Ron Miller.
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the original Rat Pack, the production toured for ten weeks at San Francisco’s Marines Memorial Theatre, earning rave reviews and an unbroken string of standing ovations. The show also drew large audiences in Niagara Falls, N.Y., Tucson and Phoenix, AZ and Houston, Texas, and will soon perform at Bill Edwards’ Treasure Island Yacht Club in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Gearing up for a national tour next year, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” is unsurpassed with the extraordinary talents of Buddy Hackett and Ron Miller, and is unparalleled in its originality and the chemistry of the show’s remarkable cast: David DeCosta (Frank Sinatra), Doug Starks (Sammy Davis, Jr.), Tony Basile (Dean Martin), Lisa Dawn Miller (Frank’s One Love), and Sandy Hackett (Joey Bishop).
The stellar creative team is led by producers Sandy Hackett and Lisa Dawn Miller; Director, Billy Karl; Technical Director (Sound & Film) Mark Matson; and Art Director, Jeanne Quinn. The show’s musical team features new arrangements by Maestro Christopher Hardin and Music Director/Conductor Joey Singer.
