West End stars recreate the Rat Pack sound with a gig at Portsmouth Guildhall.

Kings of swing Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra will be represented in the show that promises to bring ‘all the panache and attitude’ of the big three in their Vegas heyday.

The evening’s Dean, Mark Halliday, has performed as Dean Martin both in the West End of London and in international touring productions.

Richard Shelton as Frank Sinatra gained great reviews as Ol’ Blue Eyes in West End hit Rat Pack Confidential.

Jim Whitley plays Sammy Davis Jnr. As well as extensively touring the UK as both Sammy and Nat King Cole, the former Manchester City international footballer has previously performed alongside Judy Carmichael at New York’s famous Rainbow Rooms.

Catch Rat Pack Live next Friday. Tickets are £23 and £22 concessions. Visit portsmouthguildhall.org.uk or call (0844) 847 2362.
