Performed by four singers, this musical revue of 30 songs will take you from his early years in New York during the 1940s swing era, to the casinos of Las Vegas with the Rat Pack in the 1960s and to his final performances in the 1990s as "Chairman of the Board.

Christmas My Way brings together four well-know musical theater performers Dorian Chalmers and Tim Drake from the original cast of the hit musical comedy Church Basement Ladies, Jennifer Ekes of POP UP MUSICAL and Ken Quiricone. a two year veteran of the Medora Musical. They are joined by a three-piece swinging, live band including Dennis Curley, piano, Marc Bohn, percussion and Ed Avila, upright bass. Nothing is silent about this night as they make a little hey-hey with groovy versions of such Sinatra Christmas hits like "Mistletoe and Holly," "The Christmas song." "Christmas Memories," "Winter Wonderland," "Silver Bells" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas." Toss in the Rat Pack versions of "Twas the Night Before Christmas " and "The Twelve Days of Christmas," Other Sinatra mainstays include "Fly Me To The Moon," "New York, New York," "That's Life," "Love and Marriage," "I Get A Kick Out of You," "I've Got You Under My Skin," and "The Lady is a Tramp" to complete the evening.
