CATCH ME IF YOU CAN Opens At The REV Theatre Company

The REV Theatre Company opens its inaugural production of the 2022 Season - Catch Me If You Can. The show runs June 8-28 at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in Auburn, NY.

Based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr., Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set during the jet age of the 60s. Frank runs away from his fractured home to pursue a life of great adventure, conning people along the way by assuming a multitude of identities: airline pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few. When the FBI catches on, Frank not only eludes capture but revels in the pursuit. A fast, rollicking musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, and a book by Terrence McNally, Catch Me If You Can is a high-flying, heartfelt musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught.

Catch Me If You Can is directed by The REV's Producing Artistic Director, Brett Smock and choreographed by Richard J. Hinds. Anthony Raimondi serves as Associate Choreographer. The show features musical direction by Brian Cimmet, scenic design by Adam Koch, and video design by Steven Royal. Costume design is by resident designer, Tiffany Howard with hair and makeup design by Alfonso Annotto, lighting design by Jose Santiago, and sound design by Kevin Heard.
