Our History image
Lucky Penny Productions was founded in Napa in 2009. Our first performances took place in the depot of the Napa Valley Wine Train in May of that year. A few months later we began producing shows in the Napa Valley Opera House and at Dreamweavers/Napa Valley Playhouse. Along the way we developed co-productions with 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa and Spreckels Theatre Company in Rohnert Park. In January 2015 we opened the Lucky Penny Community Arts Center as the home for all our productions.
