Geoff Elliott & Julia Rodriguez-Elliott

Producing Artistic Directors

A Noise Within Producing Artistic Directors, Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott both hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Florida and a Master of Fine Arts from San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre. In 1991, they set an ambitious vision for ANW: to establish a home for the classics that would present a challenging repertory, take artistic risks, and ensure accessibility to diverse audiences. Through their passion and persistence, the theatre now ranks as a leading presenter of great world drama in Southern California.
