Lucky Penny Productions is the product of a dream shared by two people - one a fourth-generation Napa native, the other a midwestern expatriate. Taylor Bartolucci (the native) and Barry Martin (the expat) met in late 2008 and discovered they had much in common in their love for live theatre, and soon fell to talking about creating their own theatre company. A few weeks later an opportunity presented itself, and Lucky Penny Productions was born. Operating as a for-profit business at first, Lucky Penny transitioned to 501c3 non-profit status in 2012 with governance by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. After producing in various venues for six years, the Lucky Penny Community Arts Center opened in January 2015 as the company's new home for teaching, rehearsal and performance. Our home features a 97-seat black box theatre along with rehearsal space, scene shop, and spacious lobby.
