Strictly Sinatra, The Lalas and Aunt Mary Pat take over The Event Center

PHILADELPHIA — Jan. 25, 2022 — Diverse and eclectic entertainment continues to fill the calendar at Rivers Casino Philadelphia. The Rat Pack, The Lalas and Aunt Mary Pat will perform in The Event Center in March, joining three previously scheduled March shows.

Guests have two chances to see The Rat Pack, an unrivaled Frank Sinatra tribute, on Thursday, March 10, and Friday, March 11. The following night, The Lalas perform its wildly entertaining burlesque show on Saturday, March 12, while the hilarious Aunt Mary Pat is back at Rivers Casino on Wednesday, March 23.

The newly added performances join the earlier scheduled The Young Dubliners (March 16), Gary Allan (March 25), and Rick Braun and Richard Elliott (March 26).

“These three shows help our growing and diverse entertainment,” said Justin Moore, general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. “Aunt Mary Pat is always a hit, and we can’t wait to see Simply Sinatra and The Lalas.”

The Rat Pack – Thursday, March 10, and Friday March 11, at 7 p.m.
Presented by Strictly Sinatra; tickets start at $49

This tribute to the legendary Rat Pack highlights the memorable music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. Direct from Las Vegas, Strictly Sinatra presents The Rat Pack, a throwback to Hollywood’s golden years.

Michael Dutra has performed his Sinatra tribute all over the United States since 2002 and has been hailed as one of the finest interpreters of the Sinatra sound in the world. The show features Dutra’s velvety voice as he sings Sinatra classics such as “My Way,” “Fly Me to the Moon” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” Guests will feel like they’re watching “Ol’ Blue Eyes” himself.

The Lalas – Saturday, March 12, at 8 p.m.
Los Angeles-based burlesque show; tickets start at $29

The Lalas is the best in burlesque. The show is equally hilarious and sexy and will have you at the edge of your seat, jaw dropped, and hootin’ and hollerin’ like you’ve never thought possible. It’s 75 minutes of classic rock & blues music, perfectly choreographed dance moves, and so much fringe you’ll wonder how they got it all on the plane.

The show is perfect for date night, girls’ night out, or if you’re just looking to see some empowered women rock the stage, The Lalas is the show for you.

Aunt Mary Pat – Wednesday, March 23, at 7 p.m.
Philadelphia’s favorite aunt; tickets cost $20

The Delaware County viral video star, who in 2021 twice performed in a packed Rivers Casino Event Center, describes her Aunt Mary Pat character show as a collection of standup comedy, improv and variety performance.
