Dinner on Stage Update

Dear Dinner on Stage attendees,

As you are well aware, the current public health crisis has resulted in public event closures across the nation, from Broadway to Disneyland and from Oregon Shakespeare Festival to the NBA.

We are writing to let you know that effective immediately, A Noise Within will be following suit. On the recommendation from Governor Newsom and state health officials, we are cancelling all upcoming events at A Noise Within, including the current iteration of Dinner on Stage and the remainder of our performances for both Winter’s Tale and Alice in Wonderland. We are saddened to see them canceled but must act in the best interest of our audiences and community.

Regarding Dinner on Stage:

Our event on the 24th will no longer be taking place, but we are actively looking for alternative options; this is our only fundraising event of the year, and the revenue is important to the vitality of our education program. We are heartbroken not to be able to share this gala with you as originally planned. We had a spectacular evening set up, centered on this absolutely gorgeous show, and we were very excited to publicly recognize two longtime champions of ANW, Terri Murray and Audubon Middle School. We are so grateful for the funding and pledges that have already been committed to this effort, and appreciate your patience as we reimagine this event. We need your support now more than ever, as we will be without revenue from ticket sales.

As a nonprofit organization, A Noise Within has been a proud member of this community for nearly 30 years. Without the revenue from ticket sales or educational partners, we are depending on the support of our loyal friends and patrons to keep the company moving forward in these trying times. We need you now more than ever. You can make a donation by clicking here. As always, your donation will be fully tax-deductible. 

Thank you for being such ardent supporters of our education program and company through these trying times. We will be in contact soon with alternative plans and options for you and your guests. Until then, feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

All the best,



Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott
