The Tewksbury Memorial High School Theater Company is producing "Catch Me If You Can", to be shown May 14th and 15th at 7 PM and May 16th at 2 PM and 7 PM.

Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, "Catch Me If You Can" is the high-flying, splashy new Broadway musical that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr.(played by Senior Matt Pantanella), a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. 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, Brenda Strong (played by Olivia Raso). But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty (played by Senior Adam Tackes), Carl chases Frank to the end...and finds something he never expected.

This delightfully entertaining musical has been 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 & Scott Wittman (Hairspray).

Don't miss this big-hearted musical adventure based on an astonishing real-life story of being young, in love... and in deep, deep trouble!
