Tuition policies regarding Covid:

  • If a student feels it necessary to drop  a course or production due to the Covid virus complications, he/she will be refunded at 50% of the original tuition or less, dependent on how many classes are left in the course schedule.

Covid Protocols for Performance Attendance:


Proof of Full Vaccination OR Negative Test for ALL patrons 5 and older. Proof of Full Vaccination is required with matching photo ID in order to pick up your tickets. A physical vaccination card, picture of vaccination card or digital vaccination record will suffice. A printout or photo of a negative COVID test is required for non-vaccinated patrons. This either means a negative in pharmacy/lab/home COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance or a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance. For testing in Napa we recommend N3 Laboratories, Kaiser, and pharmacies such as Rite-Aid and CVS.

All actors participating in Lucky Penny Performances are either a) vaccinated or b) take PCR tests and submit the negative results twice weekly during rehearsals and performances.

 What is the refund policy?

We understand that there are many concerns surrounding the pandemic, as well as constantly changing circumstances. With that in mind, we are more than happy to either a) give you a full refund on any tickets purchased for a performance that you no longer wish to attend, or b) transfer your tickets to another production/performance later in the season.

THANK YOU for your cooperation in following these policies to keep the community safe, and to allow us to reopen successfully.
