An oasis for those who love classic stories. Los Angeles Times

ANW Annual Fund

Dear friends,

The 30th Anniversary is known as the “Pearl Anniversary,” which represents the pearls of wisdom gained through experience. We love that: the idea that our experiences – no matter how challenging they may be – are the path to wisdom.

In 30 years of A Noise Within, we’ve experienced A LOT. But as the last two years have reminded us, there are always new experiences to be had, new obstacles to overcome, new wisdom to be gained. As we celebrate our Pearl Anniversary, we find ourselves reflecting on the new pearls of wisdom we’ve picked up in the past few years:

  • Producing theatre is difficult; NOT producing theatre, significantly more so
  • A life without community is an empty life indeed
  • Moments of great uncertainty, when faced head-on, can often inspire moments of great creativity

The pandemic-responsive closure was an experience like no other. But it reminded us every day of how grateful we are for the community we share with you, of the essential role these stories play in our lives, and of our true passion for the work we do here.  We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: your support is the only thing that got us through the closure and back to live performance.

Well, we’re back, we’re more inspired than ever, and we’re so excited to see what we can create together with your support!

As we close out our 30th Anniversary Season, we are immensely grateful for your generous support of A Noise Within, and we hope to count on your support as we launch into our next 30. This year, we hope you will consider making a donation to our Annual Fund. Your gift would mean the world to us as we approach our exciting next season (Daring to Love), moving bravely towards whatever lies ahead and hoping to pick up some new pearls of wisdom along the way!

With warmth and gratitude,

Geoff & Julia
