If you're in town Monday, Frosty the Snowman, you'll want to thumpety thump, thump down to 4th Avenue where the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center is going to be cool like that.
For its last show of the semester, the Marshall Artists Series is pumping in some 1950s-holiday cool, Las Vegas lounge style, at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30.
Straight out of Vegas, it's the live comedy-and-music-filled holiday show, The Rat Pack is Back: Here for the Holidays, that fires up its jokes and the vocal stylings of classic crooners Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin and Joey Bishop swinging with a 12-piece big band orchestra.
Tickets are $45 to $55 and on sale at the Artists Series box office and Ticketmaster.
As part of the holiday celebration, folks are asked to bring in non-perishable food items to the show for donation to the Huntington-based Cridlin Pantry.
Not your typical wall-to-wall all-Christmas show, this favorite lounge show that only does brief mini tours away from Vegas, tosses in many of the late, great legends' holiday classics such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" and "Baby it's Cold Outside," along with plenty of jokes, stories and swing tunes.
Brian Duprey, a 28-year-old who has been playing Frank Sinatra with the show since 2002, said it's a cool show that doesn't push the Christmas overload button.
"Probably about 15 percent of the songs are holiday songs," Duprey said. "We try to maintain that level to get rid of that corniness that can be associated with too much Christmas. We throw in a lot of Christmas flavor, but there's no reason to beat people over the head with it."
