Co-Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott invite you to an evening under the stars with artists of A Noise Within: 

May 17, 2022

Celebrating 30 Years of Education at A Noise Within! 

Since the beginning, education has been at the core of A Noise Within’s mission, values, and philosophy. Throughout the years, these programs have remained strong – weathering a move from Glendale to Pasadena, the construction of our permanent home, a global pandemic, and much more. Our dedication to serving the youth of today has never been stronger. 

A Noise Within’s Education Program serves 18,000 students in a typical year, from Ojai to Irvine and from Victorville to El Segundo. These programs have remained strong throughout the pandemic, with virtual lessons, streamed performances, and more! 

Proceeds Support… 

  • Tickets to matinee and evening performances 
  • Pre-show activities with Teaching Artists 
  • Free online study guides 
  • Post-show conversations with actors and designers 
  • In-class and virtual workshops and residencies 
  • Free workshops and professional development for teachers 

We hope you will join us for a night of cocktails around the pool, performances from ANW artists, a catered dinner, and more – all to benefit the students of Southern California.

Chuck and Bette Redmond Legacy Award 

Deborah Strang 

Named after A Noise Within’s first and most ardent champions, the Chuck and Bette Redmond Legacy Award recognizes the extraordinary generosity of a supporter that continues to impact A Noise Within. Since 1991, Deborah Strang has exemplified what it means to be a Resident Artist at A Noise Within. She has done this not only through her spectacular artistry, but through her commitment to both education and community: teaching classes and workshops through our Education Program, mentoring early career artists, leading audience enrichment activities, and – of course – managing our box office and patron services. This award recognizes all that Deb has done for ANW over the past three decades. Her contributions on and off the stage have been instrumental in making our theatre a home, providing incredible experiences over the years for hundreds of thousands of students and community members.
