OMG! This show was absolutely incredible!!! Some of the best musical theather I have seen in the past few years. AMAZING on so many levels. This is indeed a MUST-SEE show. The lead actor is superb in his role...he is totally believable as this...continued

Thoroughly enjoyed "Catch Me If You Can." The singing and the dancing were terrific. And the story (which is true) is really a lot of fun. While we didn't find it to be an emotional experience like "Les Miserables," we still enjoyed it tremendously.

my friend was in the production so I could be a bit biased but other audience members thought it was great also. Bring a blanket and cushion to sit on as it can get chilly at night and the concrete benches are not very forgiving.

More Information



Comfortable shoes and clothes are recommended. Since Oakland summer evenings are sometimes chilly, we suggest bringing jackets.

There are bathrooms and snack bars inside the amphitheater. Coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, candy, popcorn and cookies are available for purchase.

Picnic tables are available throughout the park on a first-come, first-served basis. There are also some picnic tables within the amphitheater that can be reserved through Producers Associates for a nominal charge of $10. For information about reserving picnic tables, call 510-531-9597 or email

You’ll probably want to arrive no later than 6:00pm to have time for a leisurely picnic before the show starts promptly at 8:00pm
