The set for Catch Me If You Can, designed by Robert A. Kovach, includes all set pieces and furniture necessary to depict the various locations discussed in the script, allowing cinematic fluidity from scene to scene. The design focuses heavily on the concept of this play as a 1960s TV variety show, and the package includes a collection of rear-projected images evoking the 1960s time period, and depicting a wide range of locations, including homes, apartments, hotel rooms, and the FBI office, as well as specific 1960s TV show images. Other visuals depict less literal imagery, reflecting the emotions of the central characters.

Hard scenic elements include four large illuminated sliding panels that change colors, a framing set of soft portals, and a large central rear-projection video screen (framed by two sliders which can change the screen’s square shape into the oval look of a 1960s TV set). The package includes all props (except guns) and an assortment of re-useable furniture pieces, with assorted dressing, which appear throughout the show. The screen images created by the set designer are included, but the projection equipment is not. The MTWichita production featured occasional live video feed of the actors, shot from a live modern camera onstage, hidden inside the shell of a 1960s TV camera. The shell is included in the rental but the video camera is not.

The dozens of colorful costumes by Dixon Reynolds are vividly period-appropriate, including showgirls and chorus boys, stewardesses and pilots, nurses and doctors, “Sing Along with Mitch” singer-dancers, FBI men, a Southern family, New York commuters, and three “Vanna White” type TV hostesses. The costume package was created for a larger cast than was used on Broadway (with approximately 12 ensemble women and 16 ensemble men in addition to the principals). All sets, props and costumes can be transported in two 53′ trucks.
