Based on the hit film and the incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Musical, this delightfully entertaining show was created by a Tony Award-winning "dream team," with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray).


In this big and bright spectacle with high-energy dance numbers and a riveting story, precocious teenager, Frank Abignale, Jr., runs away from home seeking fame and fortune. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. When Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent, Carl Hanratty, though, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.


The Catch Me If You Can production staff is closely monitoring state and local COVID-19 recommendations and protection measures. To help ensure the safety of our team and community auditions and show dates are under review. Information regarding this production will be available once we know more.
