Our mission is to enhance the performing arts culture of the greater Billings region through education, development and performance.
NOVA Center for the Performing Arts came into existence when Venture Theatre and Rimrock Opera merged on May 11, 2013. A nova is a star that suddenly becomes much brighter. By joining together, our two organizations will be much brighter and our performing stars will shine. Both organizations saw an opportunity to secure a strong future by joining forces, sharing space and resources and combining the Board of Directors into one organization. This merger will allow current programs of both organizations to go forward while securing a strong financial base for the two organizations to merge and continue well into the future. The NOVA Center for the Performing Arts will offer drama, musical theater and opera under one roof. Other organizations will be able to rent space for performances or meeting space. The building will be in use almost every day of the year providing the Billings community a local space for performance arts. NOVA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Rankin File Campaign
NOVA Center for the Performing Arts invites you to join us in celebrating women in the arts.
Each year NOVA provides opportunities to female directors, actors, and playwrights. Once a year, we put their efforts to work on one project that gives voice and empowerment to women in the arts – The Rankin File. Named for Jeannette Rankin, the Montana woman to become the first female U.S Congresswoman in 1917 – the Rankin File is a group of Billings Area women who sponsor a play on Venture’s Season.
This year, we are presenting Next to Normal.
As a non-profit organization, corporate and private donations are essential for NOVA Center for the Performing Arts to continue to give women artists a distinct voice and imprint on the theater community.
Please consider sponsoring the Rankin File and help the women’s voice continue to be heard.
Consider $50, $100 or $200 depending upon your budget.
You can join online by making your donation through our secure online box office.
Please make checks payable to NOVA– memo: Rankin File, and mail to: NOVA Center, PO Box 11, Billings, MT 59103.
Voice a belief in the power, range, and substance of women in the theater arts. Together we can create a legacy.
