New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) proudly invites the public to the student production of Lucky Stiff, a hilarious murder mystery musical.

Performances will be held nightly from Nov. 14 – 17 at 7 p.m. and a Saturday matinee Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. in NOCCA’s Nims Black Box Theatre at 2800 Chartres Street in New Orleans.

Students Austin Pecot from Hahnville High and Katie Pintado from Destrehan High will be featured in the production.

Lucky Stiff, a comedic production written by lyricist Lynn Ahrens and composer Stephen Flaherty, is filled with one-liners and guaranteed to be a good time. The show is a wild ride that follows an English shoe salesman as he tries to win his inheritance by taking his dead uncle’s corpse to Monte Carlo for a vacation. The plot includes mistaken identities, glittering diamonds, and an evening of utter lunacy. Lucky Stiff is produced through an agreement with Dramatists Play Service.

The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts is Louisiana’s arts conservatory for high school students. NOCCA offers students from across the state tuition-free arts instruction in Culinary Arts, Creative Writing, Dance, Media Arts (Filmmaking and Audio Production), Music, Theatre Arts, Visual Arts and academics.
