More Details on Play:
The incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can tells the life story about teenager Frank Abagnale, Jr. who runs away from home to escape his morally questionable parents.
First time director at Center for the Arts, Corey Shadd shares, "I love that this production is based on a true story. It's a fun, adventurous story with upbeat sixties music, but it really shows how the actions of parents can influence their children in a negative way."
Frank Abagnale Jr., at the age of 21, had forged 2.5 million dollars in checks, and traveled the country posing as pilots, doctors, and lawyers, with less than a high school education - but when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
"This story also shows that age is not a limitation on achievement, and that there is always the opportunity to change your life," shares Shadd. "We don't condone deception and fraud, or escaping from the FBI; but the confidence, resourcefulness, and fearlessness of Frank Abagnale Jr. is commendable."
The restaurant partner for Catch Me if You Can is Sub Stop Murfreesboro. Upon ticket purchase, show patrons will receive a promotional code to receive 10% off when they dine at Sub Stop before or after the show.
