Lucky Penny Productions Announces 2013-14 Season

2 big musicals will come to the Napa Valley Opera House.

Napa-based Lucky Penny Productions’ fifth season will feature four major stage productions in 2013-14.

The season will begin with “Monty Python’s Spamalot.” Produced by 6th Street Playhouse of Santa Rosa for a North Bay premiere August 23-September 22, this popular show will come to the Main Stage of the Napa Valley Opera House October 11-20, 2013, in association with Lucky Penny Productions.

In December, Lucky Penny teams up with Napa Valley Playhouse to co-produce “An 8 x 10 Holiday: A Festival of Ten Minute Plays.” This second annual short play event will bring eight original works to the stage. Following the popularity of the first “8 x 10” in 2012, the presentation will expand to three weekends, running December 6-22 at Napa Valley Playhouse. 

Spring brings the hilarious musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” to the Napa Valley Opera House, a co-production with 6th Street Playhouse. Derived from the 1988 film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, “Scoundrels” will run April 25-May 4, 2014 in Napa after a three-weekend run in Santa Rosa.

Closing out the season will be the Pulitzer-Prize finalist “Becky Shaw” by Gina Gionfriddo, a comedy of family, love, bad manners and ethical dilemmas. Co-produced with Napa Valley Playhouse, “Becky Shaw” is set for a three weekend run in July 2014.

“We’re excited about the collaborative projects we have planned for the coming season,” said Co-Founder and President Taylor Bartolucci.  “By working hand-in-hand with other theatre companies we’re able to stage bigger shows, and we think this is a season local audiences are going to love.”

Lucky Penny’s production of “Funny Girl” is now on stage at the Napa Valley Opera House through May 20. The 2013-13 season will conclude with David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Wonder of the World” July 12-28, a co-production with Napa Valley Playhouse.
