Program Overview

Educators, enrich your students’ lives with award-winning theatre at A Noise Within!

Our education programs are designed to increase access to live classical theatre and to enhance the classroom learning experience for both teachers and students. The ANW Education program experience includes: tickets at a reduced cost, post-show discussions with the artists, California standards-compliant study guides, and optional in-class workshops. ANW has variety of ways to help you engage your students in the arts!

“A Noise Within is a mirror that reflects the brightness that art can offer. It encourages every single student to look deep inside themselves for inspiration.” —Anna Owen, Teacher at Lennox Middle School
