Lucky Penny Productions 2017-2018 Season

A compelling mix of classics and recent works for its 2017-18 season, headlined by the legendary musical “Chicago”

Sept. 8 - 24, 2017


Music by John Kander Lyrics by Fred Ebb Book by Bob Fosse & Fred Ebb

Set in the jazz hot 1920s, Chicago tells the story of Velma and Roxie, two rival murderesses; prison matron Mama Morton; and slick lawyer Billy Flynn, who conjure a murder-of-the-week media frenzy. Revolutionary in its original 1975 production, Chicago was revived in 1997 and won six Tony Awards, and continues today as the longest running American musical in Broadway history. The 2002 film version of the musical won the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Oct. 20 - Nov. 5, 2017


By Arthur Miller

In 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts, Abigail, niece to the minister, accuses several local women of witchcraft. What follows reveals a tangled web of lies, deceit, and ulterior motives. The compelling classic, the 1953 Tony Award winner for Best Play, remains as current today as when written as a response to the Communist “witch hunts” of the 1950s, exploring “mass hysteria” and the darker, and nobler, sides of human nature.

Annie on Broadway claimed seven Tony Awards including Best Musical and became a world-wide phenomenon. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Escaping the orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan, Annie finds fun-filled adventures galore and finds a new home and family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks. A special musical for the whole family at Christmas time.
