2019-20 Show: 13 Colonies
13 Colonies: Hosted by George and Martha Washington, our musical review of early American history covers the period from the arrival of the Europeans to the signing of the Bill of Rights. Everyone shows up, from Leif Erickson, the Iroquois, and Ponce de Leon to Ben Franklin, Sibyl Luddington and The 13 Colony Singers. Keeping all the characters in line are the History Police, crashing the party whenever the hosts "mess around with history."

Outreach Education
Venture Into Schools is NOVA’s outreach education program. The program is dedicated to engaging, inspiring and challenging youth through performing arts. Since the program began in 2003, we have ventured into more than 20 different schools and youth organizations.

Two-week Production Workshop
Students in grades 3-5 are eligible to audition for a 30-minute musical. A maximum of 50 students may participate. Auditions and rehearsals take place after school. After only two weeks of rehearsal, students will perform the musical three times for their peers, family and teachers. Venture Into Schools provides costumes, props and minimalist set for each production. The school provides the students and space.

Why Choose a Local Arts Education Program?
Venture Into Schools can be a gateway to the performing arts. Because NOVA is located in your community, interested students may later choose to explore the wider offerings at NOVA’s Youth Conservatory including: dance, acting and voice classes, summer camps, and youth productions (musical and non-musical)

How do I book this at my school?
It’s as easy as contacting NOVA’s Youth Director at the NOVA Box Office and reserving a 2-week block of time that works best for you.
