The Rat Pack is Back!

Dick Feeney & Sandy Hackett’s Hit Vegas Show

At Stoneham Theatre July 9 - 26
Shows Also At
July 28 @ Cape Cod Melody Tent
July 29 @ South Shore Music Circus

Rockland, Massachusetts native Dick Feeney has achieved major show-biz success in Las Vegas and now he’s bringing one of his hot Vegas shows to Stoneham and to the South Shore and Cape Cod this July for a whirlwind tour of his home state. The Rat Pack Is Back show will take place at Stoneham Theatre Thursday, July 9 through Sunday, July 26, at Cape Cod Melody Tent on Tuesday, July 28 and at South Shore Music Circus Wednesday, July 29. Tickets for all venues are on sale now.

The show, The Rat Pack Is Back, is a comedy-packed musical knockout paying homage to four Hollywood/Las Vegas icons of the 1960s, the great Frank Sinatra and his buddies Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.

Produced by Dick Feeney with his co-producer, Sandy Hackett [Buddy’s son] the show is a non-stop, free-wheeling nightclub act that packs houses everywhere.

“This is as close as anyone has come to capturing the feeling of the real thing,” declared The Las Vegas Sun.

“The Pack is back for a fabulous performance. Hilarious, bawdy, bantering, merciless razzing, and a swingin’ big band playing hit after hit!” stated The Los Angeles Times.

The Rat Pack Is Back stars Brian Duprey as Frank Sinatra, Mickey Joseph as Joey Bishop, Kyle Diamond as Sammy Davis, Jr. and Drew Anthony as Dean Martin.

On FOX TV’s Performing As, Brian Duprey [Frank Sinatra] won $20,000 portraying his idol, Frank Sinatra. Talent judge Damon Elliott (music producer of Mya, Beyoncé and Jessica Simpson) was blown away the first time he saw Brian perform. It was like he was watching “Young Blue Eyes” perform. Television viewers agreed and thousands flocked to FOX’s website to compliment his uncanny likeness to Sinatra’s own singing voice.

San Francisco Bay area native Mickey Joseph [Joey Bishop] attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, California. To put himself through school, Mickey worked at an Italian restaurant, where his table-side antics, celebrity impressions and roll juggling caught the eye of his boss, who suggested he seek a career in show business (or any business other than his restaurant.) Mickey heeded this advice and entered the world of stand-up comedy, moving to Hollywood where he joined an improv group and began writing and performing his own act. He has since become a favorite in some of the most well known comedy clubs in the country and is the author of What Would Don Corleone Do?, a humorous and touching book about his experiences in stand-up comedy while surviving as a single parent.

Kyle Diamond [Sammy Davis, Jr.] comes from a musical family. His father was a pianist who fronted his own band, his grandfather a guitarist, and his brother, Kenny Davis, is a very talented and respected musician who has played with some of the greats from the Motown era and toured with the Ellington band. As a teenager, Kyle co-founded what would become a very popular Cleveland area band, The Pacesetters and later another group, Phantasy, which performed in nightclubs around the country.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Drew Anthony Carrano [Dean Martin] is an accomplished singer, armed with precision, range, and skill. At his young age, his career is astounding, encompassing a wide variety of shows, television appearances, and events around the country. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mannes College of Music’s Jazz Division, Drew immediately went to work, carving out a niche for himself as one of the finest singers in the New York--New Jersey--Connecticut Tri-State area. With countless performances at places like the Shubert Theater in Connecticut, the Blue Note in New York City, and the Intermezzo Night club at Foxwoods Resort and Casino, Drew Anthony Carrano has engaged audiences everywhere with his exceptional vocal quality and penchant for rhythm. He has shared the stage with the likes of Sheila Jordan, Benny Powell, Arnie Lawrence, and Chico Hamilton. On top of all that, he has recorded three live CDs, one of which features amazing blues pianist Junior Mance on its title song.
