Lucky Penny

What They Do:

Provide affordable access to quality performing arts for the whole community through low cost ticketing, (“pay what you can afford” shows), open auditions, and local live theater. Organize youth programming and arts training. Offer their venue to schools, NPOs, and others at no or low cost for shows and fundraisers.

We staged nine Lucky Penny productions this year, including musicals, plays, and the annual 8×10 Festival of 10 Minute Plays. We hold acting workshops for youth and cast local youth and adults in our productions.

We are strong community partners. In the past year we have hosted 100 Men Who Care, Leadership Napa Valley, Miss Napa County, Children’s Dance, Arts Academy, Men Making NEWS, League of Women Voters, Poetry Out Loud, Napa Valley Film Festival, and the Napa Valley Arts Council for meetings and events at no cost to the organizations.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Volunteer to staff the lobby, sell concessions and/or work the box office
  • Sponsor our shows and events to help offset production costs
  • Rent our venue spaces for your club or organization to hold meetings, fundraisers and other events
  • Bring a young person to see an age-appropriate show and expose them to the wonders of live theater. Let us know and we will roll out the red carpet for the new patron of the arts.


I have seen the joy on the faces of the patrons who have just experienced a quality performance with friends and family. For many, we are the only affordable access to the performing arts.
