The cast of Catch Me If You Can takes flight

Posted on: 21/5/2019 9:00PM

The producer who brought you Cry-Baby, High Fidelity and Rent, Lauren Peters, is thrilled to announce the stellar cast of the upcoming adventurous, inquisitive and ingeniously criminal musical Catch Me If You Can. Based on the biographical hit film of the same name, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, Catch Me If You Can will play from 19 July at the Hayes Theatre Co, Sydney. 

 

Award-winning choreographer Cameron Mitchell, who is directing his first major musical, said, “I am thrilled with the cast we managed to assemble. It is so important with this story that we got the right combination of performers, especially with three leading men. Jake is a perfect Frank Abagnale Jnr and pairing him with Tim and Simon is really exciting.”

 

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, Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns).

 

The Sydney Premiere of Catch Me If You Can  boasts an impressive Australian creative team comprising director/ choreographer Cameron Mitchell (Cry-Baby, Calamity Jane), musical supervisor Stephen Kreamer (Evie May, Assassins), musical director Anthony Cutrupi (Les Misérables), sound designer David Bergman (STC’s A Cheery Soul, The Wharf Revue), set designer Caroline Hudson and costume designer Christine Mutton.
