THE TAP PACK is a high energy, tap comedy show inspired by the infamous Rat Pack which included the famous talents of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior.
With dazzling performances on stage, dressed in slick suits and equipped with sharp wit, they are a modern twist on the classic Rat Pack.

They infuse tap dance with swing music and witty banter. As a result, this is a taste of a new, highly entertaining act featuring some of Australias finest tap dancing performers tapping up a storm. With credits on stage, film and television and with over 20 musical theatre productions between them, The Tap Pack is pure entertainment.

The show features high energy performances of mind-blowing tap dancing, smooth vocals, a swinging live jazz band and witty on-stage banter. As a result, the five-member cast wins the audience from the first downbeat and the pace of their amazing performances never slows. They joke, they compete, they croon and they cajole while performing cool classics with a fresh twist.

Synnotts climbing career has followed the arc of professional climbing from its birth in the mid 1990s to what it has become today. As a result, this puts him in a unique position to explore the subject of risk and to reflect on the old climbing proverb: there are old climbers and there are bold climbers, but there are no old bold climbers. Finally, a gifted communicator known for his wit and dry sense of humor, Synnott is widely regarded as one of the best story-tellers in the business.
The National Geographic Live Speaker Series brings premium storytelling and visually stunning imagery to the stage with first-hand accounts of science, adventure, and exploration told by our world-class explorers who inspire change in the world.
