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


Elevator/Building Accessibility

Our main elevator is located on our main floor, next to the lobby entrance, and is available to patrons who need mobility assistance. To access the front row of the seating area for our mainstage performances, the House Manager or Head Usher will accompany you down to this level.

To access our restrooms, they are located down the hallway to the right of our main entrance in the lobby. There are wheelchair-accessible stalls in each of the restrooms.

Currently, none of our doors are automatic. If you require assistance opening doors, please notify our House Manager or Ushers during your visit.

At A Noise Within, gender diversity is welcome here. Please choose to use the restroom that best fits your identity.

Wheelchair Accessibility

All areas of A Noise Within are accessible by wheelchair. For easiest access to the theater, we suggest being dropped off in the turn-around, directly in front of the theater. Another option is to park for free in the Metro Gold Line Parking Structure, take the elevator to the ground floor, and follow the walkway ramp to our main entrance. If you have any questions or concerns, or feel that the walkway will not be possible for you, please reach out to the Box Office at (626) 356-3121 or in advance of your visit and we will find an option that will work for you.

We have ADA-compliant wheelchair and companion seats available in the theater. Patrons who prefer to remain in their wheelchair should contact the box office in advance to confirm their seating.

For lift access to our Founder’s Balcony, Stage, or lower audience level, please contact the house manager or usher to assist you in this process.

Personal Accessibility Devices

We encourage patrons to bring and use their personal accessibility devices during their visit. To ensure a safe and accessible environment for everyone, it is essential to keep the aisleways clear. When not in use, we ask that you keep your device close to your seat, allowing ample space for passage. In the event a clear path can’t be made, an usher will assist you in storing your device safely during the performance.

Patrons are also encouraged to bring and use personal closed caption devices if needed. To ensure a wonderful experience for yourself and others, please adjust the device’s screen to be positioned at eye level and does not obstruct the view of other audience members and to a brightness level that is appropriate for all.


Thanks to the generosity of the Perenchio Foundation, ANW is thrilled to be rolling out a new service for patrons who would benefit from access to closed captions of our live performance. The GalaPro app (available on iOS and Android devices) provides closed captions for patrons to view on their own mobile devices. 90% of Broadway theatres are using GalaPro, and A Noise Within is delighted to be the first regional theatre in Southern California to provide this service! GalaPro operates on a closed internal network via “Airplane Mode” and prevents sounds, texts and emails from disturbing patrons during use. We encourage patrons who could benefit from the GalaPro closed captioning to follow the instructions provided here to install this app on their smart phones.

If patrons are unable to access this service on their phone or tablet, the theatre will have a limited number of mobile devices designated for GalaPro performances.


Assisted Listening Devices

Assisted Listening Devices (ALDs) amplify sound. ALDS are distributed free-of-charge on a first-come, first-served basis. To obtain an ALD, please see an usher when you arrive at A Noise Within. Sanitized headphones (1/8 inch headphone jack) are provided, however, please feel free to bring your own headphones if you wish.

T Coil Transmitter

T Coil Neck loops are available for use during all of our productions. If your device is equipped with this feature, switch your hearing aid or cochlear implant to the “T,” telephone, or hearing loop program. To obtain a neck loop, please see an usher for assistance.

In an effort to provide all members of our community with the opportunity to come enjoy classical theatre, A Noise Within is offers Relaxed Performances for A Christmas Carol in December. Relaxed Performances provide an inviting environment for those living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Developmental Delay, Neuromuscular Disorder, Sensory Integrative Dysfunction, Attention Deficit Disorder and Disorders of Social Interaction and Communication.
