You better not pout, we’re telling you why: The Scintas are coming to town. Joe and Frank Scinta, “honorary Scinta” Peter O’Donnell and recent addition Janien Valentine are coming to the Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda with their own brand of seasonal sparkle. With their wit, music and celebrity impressions, they could be described as the first family of Las Vegas. Their Christmas show is like an overstuffed stocking, with songs by Ray Charles, Michael Buble, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. There also will be a lot of laughs. The whole idea, the Scintas say, is to make the audience feel as if they are hanging out with family.
Show times are 8 p.m. Dec. 4 and 2 p.m. Dec. 5. The Scintas and their team stress that the Saturday matinee is appropriate for the whole family. Tickets are $45-$50. The Riviera Theatre is at 67 Webster St., North Tonawanda. Call 692-2413.
