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

Workshops and Residencies

Virtual workshops and residencies are now available as well as in-person if/when school communities permit. A Noise Within offers a selection of programs designed to help students engage with classical theatre. ANW teaching artists conduct hands-on exercises and interactive analysis that allow students to actively connect with the language, thereby gaining a deeper understanding of the work in correlation with one of the shows in our repertory season.

We will work with you to tailor the program to best suit your needs in terms of length, scale, and content.

See What Students & Parents Say About ANW’s Online Classes:


“‘Good, happy and exciting’ is how Penelope (7yrs) responded when I asked her to describe her ANW online class. As for me, I can tell you that her online Shakespeare class is the ONLY Zoom class she looks forward to each week and I’ve seen immediate improvement with her self confidence, imagination and reading skills.” – ANW Parent


“Online classes were as good as in person. The teachers were in control and on top of everything and I appreciate that.” – Orlando


“Though the transition to online was difficult, the program still managed to create a welcoming and fun space for people to interact and get creative.” – Hannah


“Through the pandemic this was a good distraction. It was a new experience and helped me and all of us improve as actors, singers and dancers. Over the screen wasn’t easy, but we learned important skills that we couldn’t have learned if it wasn’t over Zoom, like how to work with what we got and emote so computers could pick it up. The great teachers helped us feel comfortable and like we all had a voice!” – Ella
