Catch Me if you Can
The Georgetown Palace will hold auditions for our production of Catch Me if You Can.
Director: Ron Watson
Choreographer: Courtney Wissinger Eiland
Music Director: Molly Wissinger
Stage Manager: Faith Castaneda
The production will open Friday, March 8th and close April 7th. There is one Inclusion Series Performance Thursday, March 21st for Veterans and their families.
About the Musical: 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, a precocious teenager, Frank Abagnale, 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 is a big and bright spectacle with high-energy dance numbers and a riveting story.
Casting calls for 7 featured characters; 4 males and 3 females, ranging between their early 20’s to early 50’s, as well as a talented ensemble of 10-16, who will be very busy helping us create this fantastic show on The Springer Memorial Stage.
