The Diamond Head Theatre musical, which opened Friday, is based on the popular 2002 film that starred Leonardo DiCaprio. It tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a con man who as a teenager ran away from home in search of the glamorous life and winds up living the high life posing as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer. Eventually, Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, who is up for the chase across the United States and abroad.
This musical production stars Aleks Pevec in the lead role. Pevec’s a former Diamond Head Shooting Star, who went on to perform in the Broadway version of “Catch Me If You Can.” The show is directed by John Rampage and choreographed by Christine Yasunaga. For the performances, musical director Emmett Yoshioka and his orchestra are positioned inside the set in the style of a 1960s TV Variety Show.
Show Schedule: June 5-8 (Friday, Saturday at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 4 p.m.)
Tickets are available at Diamond Head Theatre.
