From the TONY-winning team that brought you Hairspray comes a new musical comedy about chasing your dreams... and not getting caught! Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying new musical comedy based on the hit film and the incredible true story that inspired it! Nominated for 4 TONY Awards including Best Musical, this delightfully entertaining musical has been 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).

The teenager, Frank W. Abagnale Jr., runs away from home in search of a glamorous life. 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. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl pursues Frank across the country. Along the way, though, both Frank and Carl forge an unlikely friendship and discover a way to ultimately work together.

Catch Me If You Can  is a vibrant display of mega-musical proportions that has the power to thrill audiences of every size. Filled with high-energy dance numbers and a riveting story this is a perfect choice for Community Theatres and High Schools looking for a big, bright and bold new musical.
