They are joined by former Eastenders star and Central Television’s “Mr Weather” – Des Coleman as Sammy Davis Jnr in the original Rat Pack show, now celebrating its 20th record breaking year.
Together they amaze audiences with their recreation of the music of Sinatra, Martin and Davis, in a fabulous show which brings the style and excitement of the Las Vegas heyday to vivid life. Including all the great hits – My Way, Mr Bojangles, New York New York, Amore, Come Fly With Me!
Joining the Rat Pack in Portsmouth, as a very Special Guest is the multi-talented impressionist Jessica Martin. Jessica is perhaps best known for starring in the popular ITV series “Copycats” and for many years providing voices on “Spitting Image”. However she is also a highly accomplished actress, having played Sally Smith in “Me and My Girl” for two years at The Adelphi Theatre and UK tour. She followed this with another West End role as Emily in “Elf” the musical at The Dominion Theatre. Regular T.V appearances include Dr Who and Astonished Heart for The BBC and an acclaimed performance as her idol Judy Garland on the Royal Variety Show. Jessica is particularly pleased to be reprising her salute to Judy once again in this production.
The show also features the sensational Buddy Greco All-stars Band under the direction of BBC Musical Director Don Hunt and The Stunning L.A Showgirls – Memories really are made of this!
“We may never see such greats as Frank, Dean and Sammy again in our lifetime but the good news is that as long as such talented impersonators as these continue to exist, we may not need to” – Chris Longhurst – Uxbridge Gazette
“I can honestly say that having toured with these guys, they are as close as anyone will ever get to my dear friends – Frank, Dean and Sammy. At times it was just like being back with my pals at The Sands in the sixties – so much fun and it really doesn’t get any better than that. As for David Alacey – well this guy really is Sinatra – it’s frightening” – Las Vegas Legend, Buddy Greco
