Based on the hit film, the true story is a high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager, Frank Abagnale, Jr., portrayed by Kody Bennett, 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, doctor and a lawyer-living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. When Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, portrayed by Robert Husted, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
Bennett and Husted are joined by Sarah Wilsford as Paula Abagnale, Olan Domer as Frank Abagnale, Sr., Brenna Campbell as Brenda Strong, Bailey McKarns as Carol Strong and Jared DeGarmo as Roger Strong.
