On June 20, 1965, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin performed a televised, closed-circuit benefit concert at the Kiel Opera House for the Dismas House for ex-convicts. Thought lost, a print of the show was discovered 30 years later and has gone on to become the definitive audio-visual artifact of the Rat Pack in its heyday, documenting the show they performed in Vegas throughout the 1960s. Raise your glass with Sinatra Claus and bask in the holiday glow of Sammy's glass eye and Dino's red nose as the 'Pack return to St. Louis for Christmas With The Rat Pack -- Live at the Sands! at the Fox Theater (527 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-1111 or www.fabulousfox.com).

Christmas With the Rat Pack plays Tuesday through Sunday (December 6 through 18), and tickets are $15 to $70.
