Poster Reveal #1: "Catch Me If You Can"!

It’s Time to Share!

We are so excited to finally share our 2015-16 Spokane Civic Theatre poster artwork! Over the next ten days, we’ll be revealing these fantastic designs, show by show, as created by Design Spike!

We’ll have a brief synopsis, show dates, and audition dates with each of these posts as well!

So without further ado…. let’s get started with our first regional premier of the season!

Reveal #1: Catch Me If You Can, the Musical


Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager Frank Abignale, Jr. runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure. 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. But when Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl pursues him across the country to make him pay for his crimes. Based on the hit film and incredible true story.

“Super-slick! The score evokes cocktail lounges, glitzy floorshows, Rat Pack suaveness, mellow jazz and energized go-go, all wrapped up in silky-smooth ’60s-styled orchestrations.”

– The Hollywood Reporter
