This PG-13 play is based on the hit film and the incredible true story, “Catch Me If You Can”. It is the high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Nominated for four 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 Monty”, “Ragtime”) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (“Hairspray”). Schoolhouse is presenting a play that has not been presented in Maine for several years and is certain to be a hit.
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. When Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent, Carl Hanratty, though, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
“Catch Me If You Can” will be presented at Schoolhouse on Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and on Sundays at 2 p.m. for only two weekends. Order tickets before they are sold out. Tickets are available through the Schoolhouse web site at www.schoolhousearts.org.
