Chaparral Theater’s newest production Catch Me If You Can held their first show this past Thursday, February 25 and will continue through next weekend. It’s the first time that Chaparral is hosting this musical. The storyline is a thrilling tale and worth the price of admission. “...based on a true story, Frank Abagnale Jr. is a real person and he stole 1.8 million dollars by the time that he was 21 years old,” said lead Zach Friedmen, who is cast as the lead character Frank Abagnale. This sneak peek is just a portion of the excitement that awaits in this performance.
This play in particular poses special advantages for certain groups at Chaparral. “Teachers get in free, link crew leaders and freshmen get in free for the first night,” said junior Tyler Compoz. Catch Me If You Can ended up selling out completely on opening night. Allowing freshmen totally free admission encourages them to be apart of the student body and participate in activities, as well as expose them to the top-notch theater program taking residence at Chaparral. Catch it while you have the chance, and head over to the theater while this production is still going on. You will not only be captivated by the storyline, but also by the unbelievable performance put on by the members of Chaparral’s outstanding theater department.
