Cat Pack - Improv Variety Show

Drinking, crooning, and sharp-witted scenes involving the crowd, these four swingin' cats and one lovely kitten take the stage for a spontaneous musical variety show that will leave you laughing in the aisles!

Jay Hitt, who has been a long-time improviser and fan of Sinatra and the Rat Pack, was in Las Vegas in Feb 2011 where he saw a Rat Pack tribute show. In Sept, he and the rest of the crew, Brad Kevelin, Colin Smith, Michael Bils, Kevin Brady, and Stephani Thompson got together, had drinks, talked about the show. They had one rehearsal and performed one week later for their debut at the Jewelbox Theater in Seattle on Oct 2, 2011. "It's not about impersonating the actual Rat Pack, it's about capturing that same playful energy with improv comedy sensibilities using our own personalities" says Hitt. "Getting the group together to rehearse is like herding cats!"

From Unexpected Productions, the people behind "Seattle Theatresports" CAT PACK features a bunch of swingin' cats and one lovely kitten staging a spontaneous musical improv/variety show. Despite the name, this isn't a straight-up Rat Pack tribute or parody, "Cat Pack" is all about capturing some of the freewheeling spirit of those great old shows but with all-new, spontaneous, hilarious material. Backed by a talented keyboard player, these experienced improvisers sing, dance, drink, croon and joke their way through a unique, audience-driven show at every performance.

One of my favorite shows ever!
