CATCH ME IF YOU CAN - Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre - June 30 - July 30, 2017
Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman
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 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).
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.
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 pm, Saturday matinees at 2pm with the exception of July 1st
