Catch Me If you Can with Cameron Mitchell



Today I’m with celebrated Australian choreographer, and now choreographer/director of the upcoming production “Catch Me If You Can” -  Cameron Mitchell. Cameron has many strings to his bow, he is a performer, choreographer, teacher and now a director, all of which could be preceded by any glowing superlative you can think of. Today he talks about the show, his past, present and future and what it feels like to make the transition from performer to choreographer to choreographer/director. Cameron is an absolute delight and I doubt you will meet anyone more passionate about his craft. “Catch Me If You Can -The Musical” is based on the 2002 movie of the same name which in turn was based on the 1980 autobiography of Frank Abgnale Jr – a genius con artist that managed to con millions of dollars by faking it in professions he had never trained to do. With a swinging 60’s score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, it sounds like it’s going to be a cracker. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN Book By Terrance McNally, Lyrics By Marc S
