HEAR US ROAR!

After nearly two years, New York City’s theater scene made its return this past fall. Now we’re ready to party! Join us as we usher in the new “roaring 20s” with some of the artists who will define the new decade. We’re celebrating life and embracing change in the best way we know how: an uproarious evening of food, fun and surprises galore.

WE’RE CELEBRATING WITH SAFETY AS A PRIORITY

  • All guests, staff, performers & volunteers must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, administered before January 25, 2022. We also highly recommend that anyone in attendance receive a COVID booster shot, if eligible.
  • All guests, staff, performers & volunteers must show proof of a negative COVID test upon arrival to the event. Guests can provide PCR results from a test taken within 72 hours of entry, a time-stamped photo of a rapid antigen test performed that day, or a letter from a medical provider or other proof documenting recovery from COVID-19. If you are unable to test in advance, a rapid antigen test will be provided on-site upon arrival.
  • Attendance will be capped at 40% of the venue’s seated capacity to allow for tables to be placed six feet apart.
  • All guests, staff, performers & volunteers must wear an N95, KN95, or equivalent mask when not actively eating, drinking or performing. An approved mask will be provided upon arrival if you don’t have one.
  • The entire event will take place in the main ballroom and the schedule of the evening allows guests to opt out of dinner following the performances celebrating our honorees:
    • 6:30-7:00pm – Arrivals, Cocktails & Hors D’oeuvres
    • 7:00-8:30pm – Honoree Celebration, Performances & Live Auction!
    • 8:30-10:00pm – Dinner,  Dessert & Nightcap
  • The honoree celebration and performances will be livestreamed on Ars Nova Supra starting @ 7PM ET! If you’re not going out right now or not feeling well day-of, please join us online.

DRESS CODE: THESE ROAR!NG 20S

It’s time to unleash the party animal within you. Leave the flapper dress and prohibition garb at home and bring your fiercest fashion out of hibernation. It’s our mane event, so pull out your bold prints, (faux) furs and feathers. Turn a look that will turn heads as we ROAR! into the new decade!

Ars Nova will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 for all Nova Ball participants. Covid safety protocols are subject to change according to local and federal guidance.
