a new musical
the cracks are starting to spread
Five friends attempt to come to terms with the recent and unexpected death of Dean. Gathered on the eve of his funeral they cry, laugh, and reminisce. Though one question remains: why did he kill himself?
With book, music, and lyrics by Arnoud Breitbarth and Christian Czornyj, Catch Me is an intimate musical with a hard hitting story that will make you smile, question, and cry. Featuring a cast of 6 and a live band, this is a uniquely different piece of musical theatre that you can’t afford to miss.
Catch Me is slated to return Winter 2022 in a digital reimagining of the show.

Arnoud and Christian met at Mountview Academy for Theatre Arts where they undertook an MA in Musical Theatre Writing. Catch Me was originally conceived whilst at Mountview Academy, where the show was extensively workshopped. Shortly after graduating the show debuted at London’s Art Theatre West End where it received a two week run under the direction of Jill Patterson. The show was branded as a ‘Must See’ by FringeReview and in June 2017, partly funded by Arts Council England, a workshop and staged reading in Amsterdam followed. In collaboration with seasoned Dutch director Daniël Cohen the show was radically reworked for a larger space - however, not all changes worked as well as they hoped. Currently, the team is re-writing the show, adding new songs and scenes and improving the flow.
