NOVA First Anniversary Celebration

Celebrate with NOVA Center for the Performing Arts as it marks its first successful season on Saturday, May 10 from 2-5pm. Last year, Venture Theatre and Rimrock Opera formed NOVA  ”to enhance the performing arts culture of the Billings region through education, development, and performance.”  Now, NOVA will be celebrating its first full season of producing theatre, opera, improv comedy, and educating Billings’ youth in performing techniques.

Enjoy desserts and beverages while being entertained with performances by the NOVA Youth Conservatory, a sneak preview of Little Shop of Horrors, and information about the upcoming 2014-2015 season, including excerpts from some of next season’s shows.  

For the second year in a row, guests may bid on Extraordinary Art from Ordinary Objects. Old musical instruments and cases have been transformed by local artists into fine decorative art objects. Winners will be decided by silent auction. An elegant pearl necklace, valued at $700, will be raffled off as well.

Admission for the open house is free to the public. Come and experience NOVA’s artistic culture as we celebrate and look forward to an exciting new season.

WHERE: NOVA Center for the Performing Arts, 2317 Montana Ave, Billings, MT 59101.

WHEN: May 10, 2014 2pm-5pm
