Ellingsen Family Fund Underwrites Sign Language-Interpreted Performances & Scholarships at a Noise Within

A Noise Within, the acclaimed classical repertory theatre company, has been granted funds for six American Sign Language(ASL)- Interpreted performances and a number of scholarships for each by the Ellingsen Family Fund.  The grant provides the opportunity for hearing-impaired individuals to attend performances interpreted by two professionals trained in theatrical ASL interpretation.  

ASL Performance dates for the company's 2012-13 season are: THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA on Friday, November 9, 8 pm; CYMBELINE on Friday, November 16, 8 pm; A CHRISTMAS CAROL on Friday, December 21, 2012, 8 pm; THE GRAPES OF WRATH on Friday, May 3, 8 pm; EURYDICE on Friday, May 10, 8 pm, and THE BEAUX STRATAGEM on Friday, May 17, 2013, 8 pm.  Group rates and scholarships are available for each performance.

Led by Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, A Noise Within is the only year-round classical repertory company in Southern California and one of only a handful in the entire country dedicated solely to producing classical dramatic literature in the repertory tradition of rotating productions with a resident company of professional artists.  It has been lauded by critics as a “premiere classical theatre company,” and an "outstanding ensemble" whose "vibrantly theatrical" "brilliant productions" are "freshly imagined," "exceptional," "invigorating," "riveting," "brilliantly atmospheric," “inspired,” and “masterfully crafted.”  Founded 21 years ago, ANW quickly established itself as one of the region’s key theatre companies, attracting fiercely loyal audiences and consistently high praise from the media for its productions and as a key force in arts education.  The company has presented more than 140 plays from the classics of world literature, each season producing works from authors ranging from Shakespeare and Molière to Ibsen, O’Neill and Shaw to Miller and Williams.  A Noise Within completed its milestone 2011-12 Season and 20th Anniversary in its permanent new home, a 33,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art venue in Pasadena, in May 2012.

Media sponsors for A Noise Within's 2012-13 Season are Pasadena Star-News and KPCC 89.3 FM.

A NOISE WITHIN is located on the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Sierra Madre Villa Avenue at 3352 East Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA  91107.  Single tickets currently range from $40 - $52.  Contact the A Noise Within box office in-person, via phone at 626-356-3100, or online at www.anoisewithin.org for updated pricing and seating availability.
