The Rat Pack – A Live Tribute from Las Vegas
A Production of Tribute Masters
Friday, December 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Reserved Seating
Tickets $32/$27

Get ready for a pack of music and laughter with one of the most celebrated Rat Pack tribute shows ever to grace the stage. Produced by Tribute Masters, this rousing salute to Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin is a critics’ choice. The show features three of the most accomplished and sought-after Las Vegas entertainers in the business – including Dave Halston as Frank Sinatra, Tom Stevens as Dean Martin and Dezhon Fields as Sammy.

A captivating blend of swing, swagger and antics, this show is an energizing spectacle that delivers “Old School Cool” like never before. It will excite the imagination with fabulous music, hilarious comedy and unforgettable fun in the same vintage Vegas style as the real Sinatra and his pals. Don’t miss this uproarious extravaganza of 18-karat fun!

**Please call Grapevine Ticketline for help with special seating.

**If you would like to sit in the first three rows, you must call Grapevine Ticketline as those tickets are only sold over the phone.
