The NOVA Center for the Performing Arts is opening its 2014-15 season with “BIG: The Musical,” running weekends through Aug. 24.

It is a musical version of the 1988 movie that starred Tom Hanks. It is based on a book by John Weidman, with music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. The NOVA production is directed by Amber Sommerfeld, with musical direction by Darin Niebuhr and choreography by Steven Hrubes.

“BIG” tells the story of Josh, a boy who finds himself to have grown up overnight after being granted a wish by a carnival machine. He soon discovers all of the struggles that come with being an adult.

The NOVA production is a family-friendly comedy that is equivalent to a PG movie rating. “BIG” runs on Aug. 14-17 and Aug. 21-24.

Tickets are available for $15 for students, seniors and military, and $20 for adults, plus an extra dollar service fee per ticket. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.

Tickets are available at the box office between noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, by phone at 406-591-9535 or online at www.novabillings.org.
