“Catch Me If You Can” is a fast-paced tale of a young husband whose honeymoon takes a confusing turn when his wife disappears. As he reports her missing, a mysterious woman turns up, claiming to be his bride. The play, written by Robert Thomas, is presented in a translation from a French version by Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert.
The production, directed by Mark Brewer, features cast members Brendan Siegfried, Krista Damico, Larry Filas, Valerie Heckman, Floyd A. May, Steve Mongulla and Lee Wichman. The production team also includes producer Joshua Dlouhy, lighting designer Steve Kedzierski, costume designer Valerie Heckman and stage manager Melissa Fox.
Subscription tickets for the 2010-2011 season, which will begin in September, will be available starting in May during the run of “Catch Me If You Can.” Advance subscribers can receive significant savings over purchasing single tickets.
The James Downing Theatre performances are held in the John Waldron Art Center in the Edison Park United Methodist Church.
