Catch Me If You Can is sponsored by Spencer & Lakes Regional Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Asssociates PC

Based on the hit film and the incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can, is the high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Nominated for 4 Tony awards, including Best Musical, this delightfully entertaining show was created by a Tony Award-winning "dream team", with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full MontyRagtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray).

Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager Frank Abignale, Jr. runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure. 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 to make him pay for his crimes.

  •  BIG THANKS to all who auditioned!  The directing team (Katie, Matt, and I) were impressed and excited by the level of talent and enthusiasm we saw at auditions.  It’s going to be an amazing show!
  •  Our first rehearsal will be Sunday, May 22 from 6:30- 9:30 p.m.  Please use the stage doors located on the North side of the building.
  •  You will receive your materials (librettos, music, a detailed rehearsal schedule, etc.) at the first rehearsal, but please feel free to go online and listen to the music before the first rehearsal!
  •  Please make sure you’ve read the cast list thoroughly; most cast members have multiple roles.  Don’t worry if you’re a little confused about which roles you’ve got or what those entail- this will be clarified during the read-through at the first rehearsal.
  •  This production features a large cast, and 60+ characters, which can be confusing!  To ease confusion, everyone will be given a “who’s in what” list, which is a detailed breakdown of which characters appear in each scene.  Therefore, when you receive your rehearsal schedule, you can reference the “who’s in what” scene to determine if you are in that particular scene and need to attend rehearsal.
  •  If you were not cast but would still like to participate in the production, please contact the SCT Playhouse.
  •  Lastly, and most importantly- CONGRATS!  We look forward to working with you!
