8 June at 8pm; 9 & 10 June at 3.30pm and 7.30pm
By Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Book by Terrence McNally

Catch Me If You Can is a rollicking musical based on the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr who, between the ages of 16 to 20, passed $2 million dollars in bad cheques while successfully impersonating a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer. Based on the 2002 movie of the same name, Frank runs away from home as a precocious teenager in 1960s America and pursues the globetrotting high life while winning the girl of his dreams and not getting caught. Eventually, though, he gains the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, a tenacious and lonely workaholic, who pursues his new target across America.

Nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Musical, Catch Me If You Can was created by the team behind Hairspray. With a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty Ragtime), it’s a fast-paced high-flying musical, with energetic dance numbers and a riveting storyline.

Macbeth

April 14 at 7.30pm
By William Shakespeare

HONG KONG - Award-winning Hong Kong Shax Theatre Group (HKSTG) proudly presents a cutting-edge rendition of one of the most renowned and adapted Shakespearean pieces, Macbeth. Featuring a cast of over 30, and a backstage and crew team of over 20, HKSTG’s Macbeth will retain the evergreen Shakespearean language and themes, delivering them with a dosage of fast-paced combat and post-apocalyptic dystopian elements.

 

Macbeth, although being the Bard’s shortest tragedy, paints a bloody exploration of ambition, embroidered with emotional turmoil, mental disorder, stains of immorality and the upending of the natural order. The eponymous Macbeth, Thane of Glamis, upon being proclaimed the future King of Scotland by three androgynous witches, begins to harbor ambitions of power. Goaded by his wife, Lady Macbeth, Macbeth murders King Duncan in his sleep and seizes the throne as the deceased king’s sons, Malcolm and Donalbain, flee to avoid a similar fate. Thus unravels a power struggle hallmarked with murder, confusion, insanity and dark magic.

 

As HKSTG’s tenth production in eight years, Macbeth follows in the outstanding success of The Two Gentlemen of Verona (2016) and Love’s Labour’s Lost (2017), both of which featured sold-out shows and were the recipients of numerous Hecklers awards.

Shuksin's Stories

24 Feb, 7pm 25 Feb, 2.30pm
By Vasily Shuksin

Based on a selection of stories by Soviet-era cultural phenomenon, Vasily Shukshin (1929-1974), this production was a prize-winner at Russia’s prestigious Golden Mask festival and has been acclaimed in the USA and at many of Europe’s leading international theatre events since its premiere in 2008.

Born into a Siberian peasant background, Vasily Shukshin was a household name in the Soviet Union of the 1960s and early 1970s. An award-winning film director and actor, he also wrote novels, plays, movie scripts and re-invented the short story as a major form in Russian literature.

Portraying people and situations from his own personal experience, Shukshin’s Tales are set in a remote Siberian village caught in transition between rural traditions and modern, urban, Soviet life. His frequently eccentric characters are survivors of revolution, collectivisation and war, seeking their identity in a “brave new world”. Hopelessly out of time and touch, these country folk struggle with questions of life and death, faith and reason, custom and progress. Shukshin describes the gap between their dreams and reality with understanding, warmth, love and humour.

The cast features some of Russia’s most famous theatre names including Theatre of Nations’ Artistic Director, Evgeny Mironov, and Chulpan Khamatova (star of 2003 hit movie, Good Bye Lenin!). Latvian director Alvis Hermanis made his name as founder-director of the National Theatre of Riga, with productions that have achieved critical success worldwide including at the Edinburgh and Avignon festivals. Hermanis’ recent productions include  La Traviata for the Salzburg Festival in 2014, starring Plácido Domingo and Anna Netrebko.
