The show must go on!


"NOVA Nightsky Theater was preparing for its first-ever production when a tragic accident to one of its lead actresses—who is also a co-founder of the new Falls Church theater—almost derailed the show. She was struck by a car. What follows is a remarkable “the show must go on” storyline." Keith Loria for DC Metro Theater Arts

Tech Week with a Twist


Live theater is just that, it's live. And much like life, it can be unpredictable, exciting, and scary all at once. NOVA Nightsky has experienced this in the past couple of weeks as we have had to regroup after our producer/one of our actors was injured in a serious accident. This week we should be heading into our dress and tech rehearsals, but instead we are re-blocking and restaging to accommodate a less mobile actor so the show can go on. In ordinary circumstances, re-blocking a show this late in the game is a challenge, but lucky for us, we have a group of actors so committed to this show and to each other that it has been nothing short or a joy to experience. We are excited for you to join us for our new version of Picnic! Buy your tickets now because we are close to selling out!
