Wouldn’t it be nice if every dollar you made was doubled? Not gonna happen…. unless you’re a lucky nonprofit that gets a matching-fund donor. That’s exactly what’s happened this holiday season to A Noise Within, Southern California’s only classical theater repertory company. It has received a $1 million “Patron to Patron” challenge grant, in which each donation will indeed, be doubled. In addition to this gift from an anonymous donor, ANW recently received a $500,000 grant from the Ahmanson Foundation and the Eisner Foundation‘s $200,000 grant, bringing its capital campaign to the $11 million mark, just short of the $13.3 million goal.
For donors and curious fans, ANW is now offering tours of the Pasadena construction site through its Hard Hat Sundays program. But if you’d rather enjoy a theater production than a sawdusty visit, it is staging Great Expectations and Blithe Spirit through mid-December at its current home stage in Glendale.
