CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 12, 2011) - While continuing a long run in its home base at the Las Vegas Hilton, "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show" ( celebrates New Year's Eve in grand style with two shows (6 p.m. and 10 p.m.) at The Paramount Theatre in Aurora, IL.

Named "One of Chicago's Top 10 Attended Theatres" by the League of Chicago Theatres, the venue is about 40 miles from the city (23 E. Galena Blvd.), where legendary Motown songwriter Ron Miller -- father of "Rat Pack" star and producer, Lisa Dawn Miller, was born and raised. Ironically, Lisa's mother is also named Aurora.

The show includes several special numbers penned by the elder Miller, including "For Once In My Life," and "Wasn't I A Good Time?" -- the title track from Lisa's upcoming new vocal album of the same title, due in early 2012. The Chicago-born Miller also wrote hits like "Touch Me in The Morning," "Heaven Help Us All," "Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday," "I've Never Been To Me," "A Place in the Sun," "Someday at Christmas," and "If I Could."

Producer Sandy Hackett also has strong ties to Chicago. He and his father, legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for inner city Chicago schools and performed several times at the annual NFL Players Association events in Chicago.

David DeCosta, who stars as Frank Sinatra, also hails from The Windy City. DeCosta, the only actor to ever receive a nominee for an Oscar Wilde Award for portraying Frank Sinatra, started his career in Chicago at Sinatra hangout, Jilly's.
