Hello friends of Lucky Penny-

Since our theatre world came to a sudden stop on March 11, 2020, we have done our best to adjust. We thought we would just be inconvenienced for a few weeks, but now we’ve been 10 months in limbo. We have made new plans and alternate plans, and each time the pandemic has forced us to cancel those plans.

As the pandemic played out in 2020, we cancelleed or rescheduled three shows from our 2019-20 season and a summer production. Next we had to cancel the first three shows of our 2020-21 season (September-December 2020). Most of the shows we have planned to produce have many people involved and there is no safe way to create theatre, even if we were aiming to produce them as live-streamed or video theatre shows, which the licensing companies mostly won’t allow anyway! As 2021 has arrived, we honestly don't know when we can "get back to normal." Currently we are discussing what might be possible with outdoor theatre in the summer, and hoping for a chance to invite you back to the Community Arts Center in the fall of 2021. We are continuing to work on several Lucky Penny Video Theatre projects. Each of these will be available as pay-what-you-can shows.

We have preserved all the ticketing information for these cancelled/postponed shows. As we have adjusted the dates we have carried over the reservations on our books. 

If at some point you discover you have tickets that you will not be able to use. We kindly request that you consider these options:

And if you are happy with continuing to ride this out with us, we will have seats for you when the time is right. 
 
As of this update (Jan. 5, 2021) we don't feel it's productive to try and guess what happens next. We will continue doing what we can, and wait to see how these first months of 2021 turn out. As soon as we have a plan for summer, fall, and beyond, we will let you know. 
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time. Email is our preferred method at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or phone 707-266-6305. Leave a message and we will get back to you. 
And finally, thank you. We know that this is a time full of unknowns, worry and ample amounts of frustration. We feel it too. We miss seeing each and every one of you at the theatre. We miss the buzz of the audience, the musicians warming up before a performance, and the camaraderie among cast members. The main premise of the theatre is to gather people together in a shared space to enjoy a shared experience, and while we are not physically able to do that now, we know without a doubt we will be able to gather again and celebrate when it is deemed safe.
Thank you once again for your continued support of Lucky Penny Productions.
