CALIFORNIA THEATER USING STAR POWER TO RAISE FUNDS

Annette Bening will attend an Oct. 1 fund-raiser for Glendale's A Noise Within theater company, lending star power to the event.

Billed as a "special guest," Bening is expected to take the stage to make a few remarks at least, according to Art Manke, one of the company's artistic directors.Bening studied at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theatre alongside several of the company's resident artists. She has brushed shoulders with viewers at A Noise Within, attending the spring production of "The School for Wives."

Harry Hamlin and Michael Learned, also connected to ACT, are expected to be in the audience at the fund-raiser.

Funds raised will be spent on the 1994-95 production season, as well as actor training programs and special performances for area schoolchildren.
