Shakespeare, contemporary productions, and musical theater are alive and well at Whitefield Academy. Theater is incorporated into the academic curriculum. Lower school students participate in class plays and perform in at least one all-school production. In middle and high school, theater classes are available on an elective-basis.
In addition to those performing on stage, students from the Live Production class design and rig lights and sound while others contribute to costuming, make-up, and choreography. Performers and tech crew participate in the Georgia Thespian Conference, bringing home numerous awards. The theater arts program allows students to experience both the artistic and the technical side of dramatic production while it offers the Whitefield community the chance to experience a night at the theater.
Based on the hit film and the incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager, Frank Abagnale, Jr., 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, a 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, though, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
