The Rankin File Production

April 1-3*, 8-10*, 15-16, in the Black Box

NOVA Center for the Performing Arts is staging "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress," an ostentatious show about five women of different backgrounds, who are brought together for a wedding.
The show, directed by Anjanett Hawk, will be performed April 1-15 at the downtown playhouse.

"Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" is this year’s Rankin File production, which means it was written by women, about women, or directed by a woman and gives voice and empowerment to women in the arts.
The Rankin File is named in honor of Jeanette Pickering Rankin, a native Montanan who overcame intense scrutiny to become the first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and, to date, Montana’s only congresswoman.

Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2.
The show contains adult content and is not recommended for children.

Tickets are available by calling the box office at 591-9535, visiting the website at or stopping by the box office located at 2317 Montana Ave. NOVA’s box office hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
Ticket prices are $21 for adults, $16 for seniors and military, and $10 for students.
