Rat Pack reloaded swinging into town for August matinee

What do you get when Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr and Dean Martin meet Robbie Williams, Harry Connick Jnr and Michael Bublé?...Rat Pack Reloaded! 

Critically acclaimed hit show ‘Rat Pack Reloaded’ recreates the sound of the Big Band era in a dazzling show featuring iconic hits from the 1950s right through to today such as New York New York, My Way, Feeling Good, Sway, Viva Las Vegas, That’s Amore and Fly Me to the Moon.

Celebrating the styles of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jnr, together with Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jnr, Rat Pack Reloaded stars London’s West-End leading man David Malek (Les Miserables, Cats), television and musical theatre star Martin Cruz (A Place to Call Home, Les Miserables, Dr Zhivago) and Australia’s own Simon Hyland (Miss Saigon, The Boy from Oz). 

Backed by their sensational live band ‘The Players’, Rat Pack Reloaded are hitting the road to bring their 90 minute action packed show to theatres across the country.

We’re delighted to announce this matinee at 2pm on August 12, as daytime shows are extremely popular with our patrons who prefer not to drive at night. 

We predict that this show will sell fast for that very reason, so don’t delay in snapping up the best seats for this incredible performance of all your jazz and swing favourites! 

You can book now at theMEC.com.au. or by phoning 6592 5466, or popping in to our Box Office between 10am and 1pm from Tuesday to Friday.  Tickets can also be purchased at Stockland Forster seven days a week.

Les Miserables tickets on sale in July!

Yes – it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for (and asking about!) – the much anticipated Taree Arts Council’s production of Les Miserables will go on sale on Tuesday July 2.

Pre-sale is now available exclusively for Taree Arts Council members and Friends of the MEC, but now is a great time to organise a group of musical theatre lovers and plan a date. 

Details of the dates and show times in November are on our website, and I can assure you that these sessions will be very popular. 

Rehearsals are coming along swimmingly, and the Taree Arts Council Shed is alive with the sound of set building and scene painting. It’s going to be great! Don’t miss out!
