Congratulations to the CAST of LUCKY GUY!!!!
…The word on the street is RUN, don’t walk to see this show!
…It’s laugh out loud funny, refreshing and heart warming!
…Really impressive! …magical!!
…The kids and the CTA should be VERY PROUD!
…Exactly what we need right now – I was laughing and singing all the way to my car!
… I didn’t have any kids in the show, and my cheeks still hurt from smiling!!!!

It’s SHOWTIME FOLKS…and what a show it was!!!
With a fast and funny plot, Lucky Guy is a fresh, new, and totally original musical comedy guaranteed to delight the whole family.
A NOTE from Willard Beckham – the Writer of Lucky Guy:
We have an amazing cast of super talented young actors who’ve successfully tackled learning a brand new musical they’d never even heard of before and making it their own. It’s their hard work, dedication, and talent that is truly bringing this show to life and I sincerely thank each and every one of them. Bravo!
The Center for Theatre Arts has been working directly with Willard Beckham – the AUTHOR, COMPOSER and BOOK Writer from New York ( who will be coming to Pittsburgh for the shows -) along with R&H Theatricals to develop this musical for HIGH SCHOOL students!
Mr. Beckham visits the CAST of LUCKY GUY and works on the show with us! WE are indeed LUCKY GUYS and GALS
LUCKY GUY will be a Pittsburgh Premiere – and archived for our work in development!!
What an incredible honor to have received this amount of trust and recognition for… Excellence in Theater Education!
LUCKY GUY tells the tale of a singing cowboy in Nashville who wins a song contest and the chance to become a star! Lucky Guy is a fresh, new and totally original musical comedy guaranteed to delight the whole family. It has a fast and funny plot that will have you roaring with laughter and a memorable score filled with songs you’ll be humming long after you leave the theatre.
This Musical boasts a comic zestfulness that’s as refreshing as a cool glass of lemonade on a hot summer day and a heart as big as a stretch of a Midwestern plain, ultimately winning theatergoers’ hearts and earning their laughter.
The show tells the story of how G.C Wright manages to save his tiny recording studio from being foreclosed on by his nasty used car magnate cousin Big Al thanks to a song called “Lucky Guy” — a sure-fire hit that’s been penned by Billy Ray Jackson, who’s come to Nashville to record it, having won a contest that G.C.’s company has sponsored.
Unfortunately, Big Al gets wind of the tune, and schemes to steal the number away from the guys with the help of Miss Jeannie Jeannine, the Queen of Country music — whose crown is showing its age.
