NOVA’s “Reds, Whites and Brews” fundraising event

Billings Arts

NOVA Center for the Performing Arts is home to a wide variety of performances, from opera to youth productions, live music, comedy and community events. With youth classes and summer camps, outside organizations recognizing what a great space it is, and renting that space for events, the building is constantly in use.

“It really is a performing arts center, not just a theater,” said Cindy Butler, President of the NOVA Board of Directors.

On Saturday, September 7, the non-profit Center will host its annual fundraising event, Reds, Whites, and Brews. The event brings together NOVA’s supporters, performers, and staff for a smorgasbord of performance, food, and drink. Funds will be used for scholarships for summer camps, ongoing classes, and supporting NOVA’s mission to provide drama, musical theater, improv comedy, opera, and youth conservatory under one roof.

To open every new season, NOVA 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 Director’s notes about their own upcoming productions, snippets of dialog or songs by performers, plus much more!

Light appetizers, plus tasty bar-b-que by the neighboring Dickey’s will be served, plus a delectable dessert crafted by Harper and Madison. Überbrew will be providing a select beer for the event, and limited edition wines, donated by NOVA’s Board members, will be available.

During the event, opportunities to purchase sponsorships will be auctioned off which provide scholarships for summer camps, ongoing youth classes, as well as productions throughout the season. The silent auction will feature a gourmet meal for 8 at Local Kitchen and Grill, a full complement of wines including a modern wine rack, a set of goblets and serving dishes along with apropos wall decor (all together valued at nearly $500), plus a variety of donated items, gift certificates paired with NOVA performance vouchers, jewelry, artwork, entertainment and more.

The September 7th event begins at 6 p.m. at NOVA. Food and beverages are included in the ticket price of $50 per couple or $35 for an individual. Tickets are available at, by calling 406-591-9535, or stop by the NOVA box office at 2317 Montana Avenue. Hours are Tues – Fri noon to 6:00PM or before and after performances.

Plan to attend this fun and informative evening where the supporters of NOVA are #actingtogethertostrengthenthecommunity.
