About Haven’t Got A Clue:
The play is set in the 1950s in a manor house in a well-to-do part of New England.  A dinner party is being thrown on a stormy night and as the guests arrive it becomes clear that all of them have something in common.  When their host is killed during a power outage, they realize they’ve been invited to dinner to die!  As the guests and the Manor Staff begin to drop like flies, the survivors, trapped by the storm, must discover who the murderer is while trying to ellude his or her traps.

Haven’t Got a Clue is a whodunnit comedy that includes audience participation!  The audience will be invited to influence the ending by voting from 3 possible conclusions!

With a large array of characters, this will be the CSLDS’s most ambitious play to date!

About the show

“We’ve assembled a wonderfully talented cast including Brandon Schwartz, a very gifted 17-year-old singer and performer,” director Anisa Cameron said. “Brandon has a remarkable voice and if he chooses to stay in Montreal, he’s going to be a fixture in the professional theatre scene for years to come.”

Schwartz has been performing since age 6 and is now studying music with a specialization in jazz voice at Marianopolis College. Director Cameron is joined by musical director David Terriault, who worked with the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society last year on Fiddler on the Roof. The choreographer is Alexia Gourd, a talented performer who will next be seen in the musical Sister Act at Place des Arts. The assistant choreographer is Ariel Sterlin, who has worked with the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society since its inception in 2011.

“Our cast and crew are brimming with talent,” said Councillor Mitchell Brownstein, who helped launch the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society. “With every production, we are able to up the ante and put on memorable shows. Anisa has helped assemble amazing performers and a professional crew. It’s going to be our best show yet.”

Catch Me If You Can is based on the musical book by Terrence McNally, who also wrote The Full Monty and Ragtime. The score is by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who also wrote the music for Hairspray.  The musical is based on the film by Dreamworks, which was based on the book by Frank Abagnale Jr.

The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society presentation of Catch Me If You Can is the first in Canada.

     Catch Me If You Can Teaser


The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society is proud to present Catch Me If You Can for its first time in Canada!  Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is the high-flying, splashy Broadway musical making its Canadian debut, that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. 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. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end...and finds something he never expected.

With 14 shows from June 3rd - June 22nd, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch the show before its departure!  Tickets are now available for all 14 performances!
