"NOVA Center for the Performing Arts is home to a wide variety of performances, from opera to youth theater to live music, comedy and community events. And with outside organizations renting space for events, the building is constantly in use. NOVA is a performing arts center, not just a theater,” said Dodie Rife, NOVA Managing Producer.
On Saturday, September 7, 2019, NOVA will host the annual season opening fundraising event, Reds, Whites, and Brews. Reds, Whites and Brews joins NOVA’s supporters, performers, and staff for a smorgasbord of performance, food, and drink. Funds will be raised for future summer camps, ongoing classes, and supporting NOVA's mission to provide drama, musical theater, improv comedy, opera, and youth conservatory under one roof.
Since reforming as NOVA in 2013, the organization has hosted this open-house style event, which gives attendees a sample of the types of theater that NOVA offers with a “Taste of the Season.” Throughout the night, short bursts of performance will take place, including youth actors from the season’s opening youth play, “Jungle Book,” based on the popular novel by Rudyard Kipling.
Samples from other NOVA productions will be performed throughout the evening.
Appetizers will be provided by Dickey’s Barbeque Pit with desserts provided by Harper & Madison.
Uberbrew will be providing select beers for the event, and limited edition wines from the Napa Valley, which were donated, will be available.
During the event, sponsorships will be auctioned for future scholarships for summer camps and ongoing classes, as well as performances. The live auction will feature a gourmet dinner for eight donated by Local Kitchen and Bar. The silent auction features a variety of donated items, gift certificates paired with NOVA performance vouchers, jewelry, artwork, entertainment and much more. Raffle items include a wine rack with a case of wine and a Toy Story basket.
Reds, Whites and Brews begins at 6 p.m. at NOVA -- 2317 Montana Avenue. Food and beverage is included in the ticket price of $50 per couple or $35 for an individual. Call 406-591-9535 for tickets or visit on line at http://www.novabillings.org/
