2017 Season: Catch Me If You Can – the Musical
From Caper to Cinema to Centre stage: CYMC’s 2017 Musical Theatre Production of “Catch Me If You Can – the Musical”
Catch Me If You Can the Musical is a fast, rollicking musical based on the hit film and the incredible true story of Frank Abagnale Jr., one of the world’s most famous and charming con artists.
Lonely after his parents split, and seeking fame and fortune, Frank Abagnale junior runs away from home, beginning an unforgettable adventure. With nothing more than boyish charm, a big imagination, and millions of dollars in forged cheques, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams, all before he is 21!
All the while he is being doggedly pursued by Carl Hanratty, the FBI agent who is determined to catch him.
Like Hairspray, a show created by the same Tony-Award– winning writing team, Catch Me If You Can is set in the 1960s and is heavily influenced by the infectious music, dance, and television entertainment of that era!
Whether or not you have seen Steven Spielberg’s hit movie based on the same subject matter, if you enjoy a riveting comic caper, and high-energy singing and dancing, Catch Me If You Can is a musical not to be missed.
