Dinner show puts on Sinatra and spaghetti

SPRING HILL — For many folks, dining on spaghetti and meatballs while listening to the soothing sounds of Frank Sinatra epitomizes the tastes and sounds of Italy.

The Spring Hill Community Association will bring a little slice of Italy to the Lake House tonight as it presents "The Best of Sinatra — A Tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes." The show will feature impersonator Bill Stabile, who will bring to life Sinatra's style, swagger and mannerisms with such hits as My Way; New York, New York; Fly Me to the Moon and The Lady is a Tramp.

"This should be a nice change from the typical rock 'n' roll shows," said the association's president, Eddie Lawrence.

The evening will begin with a dinner of pasta, meatballs, sausage, salad and Italian cheesecake, prepared by Chef Don's On The Spot Catering.

The chef brings a mobile kitchen and prepares the food on site, Lawrence said.

"Chef Don is phenomenal," he said, "and the food is very good. He just does a great job."

The indoor dinner show will provide guests an intimate experience with Sinatra's music. However, since the Lake House banquet room seats about 100, shows tend to sell out quickly, and reservations are recommended.

Ticket prices include the dinner and the show. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Tonight's event wraps up the indoor summer shows at the Lake House. The remaining outdoor concerts include "Picnic in the Park," featuring country singers Brian Chytka and Jenny Rimmer, on Sept. 23 and "Another Motown Moment" with Act III on Oct. 15.

Money raised from the concert series, as well as from the community association's annual Angels on High holiday display in December, will go toward the association's scholarship fund.

"We've been doing well with the shows," Lawrence said. "The support from the community is great."

When: Doors open at 6:15 p.m. today; dinner is at 6:30 p.m., and showtime is at 7 p.m.
