Lucky Penny

Lucky Penny

What They Do:

Provide affordable, quality live entertainment including plays, musicals, readings, and comedy. Audition process is open to everyone and performances are accessible to the entire community. Offer summer camps and youth activities centered on theatre and music. Their Community Arts Center is available to Napa nonprofits for meetings and special events.

The cornerstones of our business model are professional quality, affordability, accessibility, and community. We have built a successful theatrical organization by keeping our overhead low (no paid staff), our creativity and collaboration very high, and by providing something few others can match locally.

Attending professional quality theatrical productions or concerts in the Bay Area is cost-prohibitive to large segments of our community. We fill that gap by keeping prices low and accessibility high.

We not only offer the community a chance to meet and enjoy shows, but we offer them a chance to participate on stage, backstage, or front of house.

Our lobby often feels like a community reunion as patrons share their experience with friends, neighbors, and acquaintances.


I can’t imagine life in Napa without Lucky Penny. My kids have performed in their professional productions alongside veteran actors, an experience you can only get in big cities! The theater also serves as a community builder. I have run into neighbors and even recognized my barista in the lobby.
