A Noise Within’s mission is to produce the great works of world drama in rotating repertory with a company of professional, classically-trained actors and to educate the public through outreach and conservatory training programs that foster an understanding and appreciation of history’s greatest plays and playwrights. A Noise Within is the only company in Southern California working in the repertory tradition – rotating productions using a resident ensemble of professional, trained artists – and dedicated solely to producing classical dramatic literature.

A Noise Within was founded in 1992 by Geoff Elliott, Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, and Art Manke. Operating out of a former Masonic Temple in Glendale, they staged a production of “Hamlet” that was accessible and relevant at a time when classic theatre was not widely performed in Los Angeles. The twenty-year evolution from a small neighborhood theatre to the current capital campaign has been marked by constantly raising the bar on what great classical theatre can be. The move to a new, permanent home provides A Noise Within with expanded artistic possibilities, a greater scope of educational opportunities, and the capacity to meet demand and reach its full potential.
