The Jet Set Has Arrived! National Tour of Catch Me If You Can Opens in Appleton

You are now cleared for takeoff. The national tour of Catch Me If You Can begins performances in Appleton on December 18. The musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Hairspray will play the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center through December 23.

Written by Scott Witman and Marc Shaiman, Catch Me If You Can follows the true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr. a world-class con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, lawyer and jet pilot all before the age of 21. With straight-arrow FBI agent Carl Hanratty on Frank’s trail, the story takes off on a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase fueled by a jazzy '60s score that keeps the adventure in constant motion. The musical is based on the 2002 film, which was directed by Steven Spielberg and starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks and Christopher Walken.

The musical, which was a Tony nominee for Best Musical in 2010, stars Stephen Anthony as Frank Abagnale, Jr. and Merritt David Janes as Carl Hanratty. The cast also features Aubrey Mae Davis as Brenda Strong, Caitlin Maloney as Paula Abagnale, Amy Burgmaier as Carol Strong and D. Scott Withers as Roger Strong.
