THE PRESTON H. THOMAS THEATRE AT MERRY-GO-ROUND PLAYHOUSE
A high-flying, heartfelt musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught.
Portrayed onscreen by Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio, and based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr., Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set during the jet age of the 60s. Frank runs away from his unhappy home to live a life of great adventure, conning people by assuming a multitude of identities: airline pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few. When the FBI catches on, Frank not only eludes capture but revels in the pursuit. A fast, rollicking musical by the creative team behind Hairspray; Catch Me If You Can tells the tale of an ingenious boy looking for his place in the world.
