The acclaimed David Alacey stars as Frank Sinatra alongside Paul Drakeley as Dean Martin. They are joined by former Eastenders star Des Coleman as Sammy Davis Jnr. in the original Rat Pack show, now celebrating its 20th record breaking year, taking to the New Theatre Royal Portsmouth stage on Thursday 28th September 2017.

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.

The show includes all the great hits — My Way, Mr Bojangles, New York New York, Amore, Come Fly With Me, and the rest!

Joining the Rat Pack in Portsmouth 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.

She’s 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 TV appearances include Dr Who and Astonished Heart for 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!

“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

“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”
