'Catch Me If You Can' now playing at Huntington Playhouse

The Huntington Playhouse season continues with a production of the musical “Catch Me If You Can” which opens on July 10 and plays through Aug. 3. The musical is based directly on the very popular Tom Hanks and Leonardo DeCaprio movie of the same name.

A young boy, not even out of high school, becomes an expert check forger, airline pilot, doctor and lawyer making millions of dollars along the way, all the while being chased by an FBI agent. The fascinating thing about this story is that it is true!Frank Abagnale Jr., the main character in the musical, even sent a good luck card to the Huntington cast at the beginning of the rehearsal period!

Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. with one Sunday matinee on Aug. 3 at 2 p.m. There will be no show on Saturday, Aug. 2, at the request of the Cleveland Metroparks so they may have their “Movie on the Beach” event that evening. The theatre will be open that morning and afternoon for performances by their youth theatre class which will be concluding their sessions that day.

For ticketing information, please contact the box office directly at 440-871-8333 or go to the theatre’s Facebook page for up-to-date information about the show. Huntington Playhouse is located at 28601 Lake Road in Bay Village.
