Welcome to Theatre 98!

Community theatre in Fairhope dates back to a group called The Paupaukewian Minstrels in 1912. The Fairhope Little Theatre was founded in 1935, followed by the Baldwin County Theatre Arts Association in 1952. Theatre 98 was founded in 1960, when existing theatre groups on the Eastern Shore merged to form a new organization. Betty Jo Wolff, the founder of Page and Palette bookstore, was the first president of Theatre 98, and remained active in the group for many years. Other founding volunteers included Vernon and Nancy Head, Annie (Butch) Sheldon, Dan Isherwood, Martha Hill, and Claude Evans.

Catch Me If You Can

“Catch Me If You Can”

by Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert

Directed by Timothy Guy


Picture 1965, a Catskills resort area. A bride goes missing on her honeymoon, and is returned to the worried groom by a somewhat shady-seeming priest.  The groom stoutly maintains that this particular young woman is NOT his missing wife. A wise-cracking, but distracted detective has to figure out what’s really going on.  And what’s that beautiful model doing there? And the deli owner? And the groom’s boss?
