A precocious teen passes himself off as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer while moonlighting as a forger. Preposterous? But it’s true. The legend of young conman Frank Abagnale Jr. was the subject of a movie and Broadway musical, both titled “Catch Me If You Can.” The Des Moines Community Playhouse production of the  musical runs through April 14.

Tickets ($46, with discounts for students and seniors) may be purchased online at, by phone at 515-277-6261, or at the Playhouse ticket office, 831 42nd St.
