Eli Wood –
Marketing & PR Director
Eli started performing at the young age of seven and immediately fell in love with theatre! He grew up performing in a plethora of community and school productions in and around his hometown in Pennsylvania until he graduated from high school. Upon graduation, Eli attended the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland where he received a B.S. in English Literature and, after finishing his degree, commissioned as a Surface Warfare and Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy. Eli was stationed all over the world from D.C. to Japan, before ultimately returning to San Diego. After separating from the Navy, Eli made the transition back into the theatre world when he began working for SDMT’s Academy in January of 2022. He has filled several positions with SDMT, but most recently shifted into the role of Marketing and PR Director in February of 2023.
While working at SDMT, Eli is actively pursuing a career in performing with some of his favorite professional credits: Anything Goes (Sailor, u/s Captain and Spit | SDMT) and Plaid Tidings (u/s Sparky and Smudge | SDMT). He’s thrilled to start work on Jesus Christ Superstar (Phillip, u/s Simon) and Tarzan (Ensemble) at Moonlight Amphitheatre this summer.
