SYNOPSIS & INFORMATION
Island ETC is pleased to announce the opening of their 14th season, the hit Broadway musical CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. This highflying hit will open on Friday, July 15th with a celebratory sixties bash and fundraiser and performances will continue through August 13th. All performances will be at ETC, 2317 Mechanic Street, Galveston.
This glamorous and glitzy musical by a Tony Award-winning creative team with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and an irresistibly swinging score by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman (Hairspray). CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is based on the hit DreamWorks film (starring Academy Award winning actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks) and the incredible true story that inspired it. This music comedy is about chasing your dreams and not getting caught!
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN captures the astonishing true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr., a world-class con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, lawyer, and a jet pilot – all before the age of 21. With straight-arrow FBI agent Carl Hanratty on Frank’s trail, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN takes us on a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase, as a jazzy sixties score keeps this adventure in constant motion.
The show is under the direction of ETC artistic director Kim Mytelka, with choreography by Jennifer Daugherty and music direction by Eduardo Guzman. The cast features Riley Harper, John Carraro, Brandon Del Castillo, Dana Buschmann, Shannon Nichols, Genny McClellan, Ian James, Hanna Harper, Lance Bleakney, Alexis Walters, Cameron Dunbar, Sophia Carraro, Ryan Van DeWalli, Justin Gonzalez, Alli Villines, John Forgy, Cailyn O’Hara, Matt Poole, and Kelsey Perkins.
