A Noise Within (ANW) continues the cherished holiday tradition of presenting its well-loved production of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL this year, onstage for the seventh holiday season. This time-honored tale of forgiveness plays 17 performances only, starting Saturday, Dec. 1 and ending Sunday, Dec. 23, 2018. After the show, you are invited to enjoy a cup of cider and take photos with the cast.
Co-Producing Artistic Director Geoff Elliott, who adapted the play from the novella, will co-direct with Julia Rodriguez-Elliott. He will also perform the part of Ebenezer Scrooge, which he has done annually, and superbly.
This season, ANW is expanding the opportunities for members of the community to enjoy classical theatre by offering a Relaxed Performance of the show on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 11 am. 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.
More about the Relaxed Performance
At this relaxed performance, the play will be edited down to 45 to 60 minutes in length, and lights and sound will be reduced to make a welcoming environment for those who are distracted or upset by startling sounds or light changes. The house lights will stay on during the performance to ensure a safe environment for the audience and to allow for easy movement around the theatre. Other aspects include:
- No strobe or sudden light effects will be used.
- Patrons can talk and move around the theater as much as they wish during the performance.
- The use of mobile electronic devices is allowed during the performance.
- Designated activity/relaxation spaces will be available for those who need a break from the performance.
- Trained staff is available to assist all patrons throughout the event.
Anyone in the community is open to attend this special date and fully inclusive experience of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, with the understanding that this performance is “Hush-Free,” and that there will be a certain level of sound and movement throughout the show. If you have any questions as to whether this performance is right for you and your family, please contact Alicia Green at 626-356-3104 or email@example.com. A Noise Within has partnered with Ivor Weiner, Professor of Special Education at California State University Northridge, to ensure best practices for this Relaxed Performance.
