Napa’s Lucky Penny Productions has announced their 2021/2022 season. Their seven-show season opens on September 10, 2021 and concludes on June 12, 2022. The season is music heavy with two Broadway musicals, one television musical adaptation, a “jukebox”‘ musical, and one play with music. An original short-play festival and a single “straight” play fill out the season.

All shows will be presented at the Lucky Penny Community Arts Center in Napa.
