THE RAT PACK & MORE
With over 30 years experience as an actor, singer, comedian, impressionist, a member of Actor's Equity, AFTRA, and Screen Actors Guild, Dean Christopher's stage, film, and television resume is extensive. He got his start at local clubs in his hometown of St. Louis, such as The Sting, The Speakeasy and the Playboy Club, with an act consisting of singing, comedy and impressions of personalities and singers. While Dean had grown up with rock, his preference was the type of music the Rat Pack had been doing in Las Vegas.
When these clubs eventually turned into venues showcasing rock bands, Dean moved to New York City, focusing on honing his acting skills at HB Studio. At the same time, he was still singing, doing comedy and emcee work for companies such as Boeing, Minolta, Chevrolet, EDS, Sony, Federal Express, Tivoli and AT&T and at clubs like Catch a Rising Star, Chilies, and Don't Tell Mama in New York and Ye Little Club in Los Angeles.
He shared the theatrical stage with actors such as Theodore Bikel, John Cullum, Eddie Bracken and Donna McKecknie and made appearances on daytime's All My Children, One Life to Live, and Another World. His favorite roles include Nathan Detroit in "Guys and Dolls", Herbie in "Gypsy" and the title roles in "Barnum" and "Phantom". Dean has also been seen and heard on numerous radio and television commercials.
Frank Sinatra got to see a resurgence in his style of music in the later years of his life. After Sinatra's death, Dean's love of that style of performance caused him to return to his roots as a night club/cabaret performer, hoping to keep alive the music of the performers he learned so much from in the beginning of his career.
This evolved into the show, "Dean Christopher -
The Rat Pack...& More", a tribute to Las Vegas and its performers back when the Rat Pack ruled.
