22nd Annual Dozinky Variety Show -

The annual Dozinky Variety Show returns to the stage for it's 2020 show on Saturday, September 19th. In addition to some amazing talent, we will be showing the always popular NPAS High School student commercials. It will be a fun night that you won't want to miss. Bring your friends, neighbors and relatives!

This is the Arts Council’s main fundraising event. The Arts Council uses these funds to pay for their other events and as matching funds for arts grants.  The New Prague Arts Council is pleased to announce that this year's sponsor is Brusseau Investments. Their sponsorship is very much appreciated and helps defray the cost of the hosting the event so that all funds raised can go directly to supporting community arts.
