The Best of Broadway, The Phat Pack brings you music, laughter and dreams.  Broadway performers (formally with Phantom in Las Vegas) sing the great songs of Broadway, American standards, Las Vegas favorites, along with some hilarious new original songs, and share some stories of their lives and careers.  The Phat Pack tips its hat to the tradition of excellence  and fun that earlier singers brought to the Las Vegas musical scene of 50’s & 60’s,  but brings it into the 21st century! As well as receiving rave reviews after opening in Las Vegas, The Phat Pack was named Best of Vegas 2013 – Best All Around Performers by the Las Vegas Review Journal. 2016 winter handbill PHAT PACK Music combined with fun and show appropriate for all ages is what you will experience at Campanile Center  for the Arts on Thursday, February 18.
