NOVA Center for the Performing Arts celebrates its first season with an open house from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
In 2013, Venture Theatre and Rimrock Opera formed NOVA “to enhance the performing arts culture of the Billings region through education, development, and performance,” according to a press release.
NOVA is completing its 2013-14 season of producing theater, opera and improv comedy and educating Billings’ youth in performing techniques.
The open house includes desserts and beverages while patrons are 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.
Guests may bid on Extraordinary Art from Ordinary Objects. Old musical instruments and cases have been transformed by local artists into decorative art objects. Winners will be decided by silent auction. A pearl necklace, valued at $700, will be raffled as well.
Admission is free and open to the public.
