Today in New Orleans 12.8.13


Who Dat! The Saints are playing the Panthers in the Dome tonight. Get into the Christmas spirit at City Park, or see the NOLA Project's unauthorized Scientology-themed holiday musical. On this day in 1879, the state capital was moved from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. Now, more to do this Sunday. 

 

Saints vs. Panthers, (Superdome, 7:30 p.m.)

Let the game day rituals begin. Both teams are 9-3, and the Saints are on their home turf. It’s been the Black and Gold’s toughest four-game stretch of the season, so tune in on NBC if you can’t make it to the Dome. Who Dat!

 

A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's X-Mas Pageant (Mid City Theatre, 3 p.m.)

The NOLA Project is breaking from the traditional holiday scripts, bringing a deadpan’s children’s take on the questionable teachings of Scientology. AJ Allegra is directing the musical, with a score from Naughty Palace.  

 

Deathtrap (The Shadowbox, 4 p.m.)

Ira Levin’s comedy offers audience members a chance to “assassinate yourself with laughter.” Writer Sidney Bruhl is in a career slump when he sees an opportunity in a student’s script. The plot of the thriller/comedy promises both shrieks and laughs for audience members. Tickets are $15.

 

Celebration in the Oaks (City Park, 6 p.m.-10p.m.)

The annual holiday season excursion in the park returns. From lights depicting everything from dinosaurs to Mr. Bingle, a carnival and giant train, Celebration in the Oaks is back to dazzle during the season once again.
