Enjoy a world premiere at Mansfield’s Palace Theatre on Friday, February 10, direct from Las Vegas!

After 15 years of touring to more than a million happy customers, the purveyors of cool are back to present some of the greatest music of the 20th century.

Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular is a totally live show which will ignite wonderful memories through the songs of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior.

Every song is a classic, including Come Fly with Me, That’s Amoré, Under My Skin, Mr Bojangles, That’s Life, Mack the Knife, and many more.

For 2017, the new show promises to bring you more glitz, more glamour, and an even more spectacular show than before, so even if you’ve already seen it, make sure you book to come again as it promises to be very different.

The revised production of Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular marks the debut of a new production company, and the Palace Theatre has secured the world premiere of their new show here in Mansfield.

The UK Theatre Bureau, based in Nottingham, is headed up by former D.J, entertainment agent, personal manager to the stars and production manager, Tony Sherwood.

Tony and his team have a mission: to create six brand new productions to tour UK Theatres nationwide in 2017. Tony says: “This is a very tall order – especially for someone who only measures 5’2” in height!”

When it came to deciding where to present their very first show - the world premiere of the new Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular - there was only one theatre that Tony would consider for this very important role.

He added: “Mansfield Palace Theatre was always going to be his first choice out of the hundreds of theatres nationwide.” Why you may ask? The reason is

simple... because historically Tony holds many fond memories of Mansfield as he was the resident DJ at the Mansfield Palais Ballroom in the 60s - which was just across the road from the Palace Theatre This was the place where Tony started his career in the entertainment industry and he feels like he is returning to his roots.

Tony, along with friend and colleague, Tracy Bright, decided to revive the Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular show under entirely new direction and the result is a more spectacular, glamorous show with a completely new stage set. New members of the cast have been enlisted alongside superb musicians plus a very glamorous set of dancers.

Add to the mix beautiful costumes, comedy routines and gags that will keep you laughing all night, and you have the promise of a great night out.

Different songs associated with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior have been added to this new show, aiming to recreate the atmosphere of The Sands Hotel in Las Vegas during the 1960s when entertainment was king!
