Lucky Penny Announces Their 2023-2024 Season

Updated: Sep 5, 2023

We’re so happy to bring you another exciting season of musicals and plays in our special black box theatre. It’s our 15th season of producing shows in Napa Valley, and we think the season ahead is a solid winner. We look forward to seeing you at the Lucky Penny Community Arts Center.


The Addams Family Musical

September 8 – 24, 2023

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family—a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before—keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. “The Addams Family Musical” is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family!




The Revolutionists

Oct. 20 – Nov. 5, 2023

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.




The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical

December 1 – 17, 2023

It’s holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. But when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. Be on hand as Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical! This companion to the original “Great American Trailer Park Musical” is just as much of a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time—but with tinsel and Keg Nog.

Saving Santa 2023

December 2 – 23, 2023

What happens when Santa’s sleigh has a hard landing on Mt. St. Helena on Christmas Eve? Can a frantic elf get help from the people of Napa Valley to save Santa and save Christmas? “Saving Santa” features new original songs by Rob Broadhurst with a book by Barry Martin, inspired by a story idea from Taylor Bartolucci. This one-act show with a running time of around one hour premiered in December 2022 and returns for more music and laughs this Christmas season. We hope to see the theatre packed with kids and their families once again!


Almost, Maine

Jan. 26 – Feb. 11, 2024

In the town of Almost, Maine, people experience the life-altering power of the human heart. In a series of playful and surreal experiences, relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers.


The Sound of Music

March 8 – 24, 2024

One of the most beloved musicals of all time, “The Sound of Music” takes place In Austria in 1938. Maria is an exuberant young governess who brings back music and joy to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power.



The Glass Menagerie

April 19 – May 5, 2024

No play in the modern theater captured the imagination and heart of the American public as did Tennessee Williams’s “The Glass Menagerie” in 1944. The Wingfield family lives in a dingy, cramped apartment in St. Louis. Amanda Wingfield, her frustrated son Tom, and fragile daughter Laura inhabit a world where a visit from a gentleman caller seems to offer the only hope of redemption not just for Laura but for the whole family. This great play is mid-century American literature at its best.


The Real Housewives of Napa Valley

May 31 – June 16, 2024

Five “real housewives” are living a famous life in the Napa Valley and beyond. Their reality show is a popular hit—or is it? When the Huzzah Network decides to cancel the show, they embark on a do or die mission to raise the ratings and hang onto their posh lifestyles. The new musical parody is the latest from the writing team of Barry Martin and Rob Broadhurst, creators of Lucky Penny’s musical hits “A Napa Valley Christmas Carol” and “Saving Santa.”
