NOVA Center for the Performing Arts

Our mission is to enhance the performing arts culture of the greater Billings region through education, development and performance.

NOVA Center for the Performing Arts came into existence when Venture Theatre and Rimrock Opera merged on May 11, 2013. A nova is a star that suddenly becomes much brighter. By joining together, our two organizations will be much brighter and our performing stars will shine. Both organizations saw an opportunity to secure a strong future by joining forces, sharing space and resources and combining the Board of Directors into one organization. This merger will allow current programs of both organizations to go forward while securing a strong financial base for the two organizations to merge and continue well into the future. The NOVA Center for the Performing Arts will offer drama, musical theater and opera under one roof. Other organizations will be able to rent space for performances or meeting space. The building will be in use almost every day of the year providing the Billings community a local space for performance arts. NOVA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
