Catch Me if You Can - the Musical
First a book, then a movie starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio, and now a musical- Catch Me if You Can is based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr. We begin the musical as Frank is captured by Agent Carl Hanratty, after years of pursuit. Frank, however, thinks the audience deserves to hear his version of the truth, and narrates his life as a hip, dance-heavy variety television show. We see Frank, as a teenager, run away from his unhappy home to live a life of great adventure, conning people by assuming a multitude of identities: airplane pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few. Set in the 1960’s, this rollicking musical by the creative team behind Hairspray, Catch Me If You Can, tells the tale of an ingenious, yet lonely, boy looking for his place in the world.
Performance for this show will take place November 16-19 at the DC Everest Senior High Theater.
