Elliot was a biology major who attended Denison University and has been in the field of education for more than 30 years. An active theater student in college, Elliot was also a T.A. for an acting class, worked on several productions, took courses, and was a member of the longest-running collegiate improvisation group, Burpee's Seedy Theatrical Company. While teaching, Elliot has periodically assisted with, directed, or appeared in school productions (West Side Story, The Laramie Project, Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night.) After what he terms "too long a hiatus," Elliot was delighted to join Ubiquitous Players in the spring of 2021 and resume his passion for drama.
