IT will be fun all the way as the ‘Purveyors of Cool’ swing into Retford Majestic Theatre in January with a sensational new show featuring some of the greatest music of the 20th Century - and you could be in the audience.
We have teamed up with show organisers to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see The Rat Pack in Retford on Saturday 19th January.
Expect to see wondeful memories of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior in what promises to be a fabulous production which has enjoyed major worldwide success.
The Rat Pack will perform totally live with their orchestra who join in the fun along with The Fabulous Vegas Showgirls who will also add a touch of glamour.
A show spokesman said the BBC summed up the show in just one word - ‘magnificent’ - and guaranteed audiences would be in for an unforgettable night of music, glitz and glamour.
“Every song is an absolute classic from Come Fly With Me, Under My Skin, Mr Bojangles and Lady Is A Tramp to That’s Amore, Mack the Knife, Sway - plus many more of your favourites,” she said.
“With an abundance of class and style they take you on a trip back in time to vintage 60s Las Vegas hip and cool as their timeless soiree remains the pinnacle of quality entertainment.”
Show founder and producer Wayne Kennedy plays Dean Martin on all the show’s dates as does Frank Sinatra stalwart Roman Marek along with James Jnr performing as Sammy Davis.
Wayne has always worked in the entertainment business, starting off in music and film memorabilia and singing from an early age, back in the 1970s.
“We’re very much a show band so we get a hardcore set of people who like that sort of thing,” he said.
“We’ve been on tour in numerous countries. The reaction we get never ceases to amaze me. We all get on well – sometimes we tour for days on end, so we have to!”
Tickets for the 7.30pm show on Saturday 19th January are priced £20 and can be bought by visiting www.majesticretford.com or call the box office on 01777 706866.
