New Form of Entertainment Hits Downtown Raleigh this Thursday!

NC Theatre has teamed up with Prime Only Downtown to bring a new entertainment concept to the downtown area in the restaurant’s newly renovated Rat Pack Lounge. The formula is simple – combine a music legend, live band, good food and drinks – and you have the Rat Pack Lounge series.

The Rat Pack Lounge series began this past April with The Cooke Book, the music of Sam Cooke, and the combination of dinner and the show was a huge hit! The restaurant saw an increase in patrons and sales, and the public left wanting more.

The series will continue with Fly Me to the Moon, a musical tribute to Frank Sinatra beginning September 18th and running through October 11th. Fly Me to the Moon will chronicle the life and times of the great music legend and will feature your favorite Frank Sinatra tunes including “My Way,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” “Chicago,” “The Lady is a Tramp” and many other classics.

Joe Amato will perform Frank Sinatra numbers in the series and has over thirty five years of performing experience. He has served as guitarist, backup vocalist with Dion on hits such as “Runaround Sue,” songwriter for artists like B.B. King and radio personality. In the early 1990s, Amato was a part of the world renowned Las Vegas production company “Legends in Concert” where he portrayed Frank Sinatra to astounded audiences.

William Jones, NC Theatre’s executive director and producer says, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue this new entertainment concept in downtown Raleigh and hope it becomes a tradition in the growing Glenwood South scene.”

Escape the crowded bars in downtown Raleigh and experience a new form of entertainment venue at the Rat Pack Lounge! The room has been turned into a 1960s Vegas showroom – with comfortable booths, a small dance floor and nice bar. Catch the dinner show and you will be treated to a delicious three-course meal in addition to the show. If you would rather just see the show, the cocktail show is an option as well.

The dinner show is $70 per person; cocktail show tables are $20 per couple if reserved in advance. To make a reservation, call the NC Theatre Box Office at 919/ 831-6941 x6944. For more information, please visit www.nctheatre.com.
