NAPA — The Lincoln Theatre, located on the ground of the Veteran’s Home, is being transformed into the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center.
Built in 1957, the theater under went a $22 million renovation in the last decade. In 2011 it closed.
Michael Madden was charged with dissolving the Friends of the Lincoln Theater, the group behind the five-year renovation. Along the way, he found some kindred spirits in performing arts and lifestyle events management. He’s now serving as interim executive director of the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center.
Recently, maestro Ming Luke was named the venue’s music and education director. The grand re-opening is March 23.
Justin-Siena High School’s theater program will debut its production of “Footloose” at the venue Feb. 28
