Scott Aronow was born on Long Island and
raised mostly in Westchester County, NY.
Focusing on music and art from the
beginning, he discovered his love of theater
design in High School and local summer
stock companies, developing his skills and
knowledge through a series of jobs and
internships in theater companies throughout
the NYC area.
Scott attended Boston University’s School
for the Arts and graduated with honors in
2000 with a BFA in Scenic Design.
After working professionally throughout
college at the Huntington Theatre Company,
The Williamstown Theater Festival, the
Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey, Hartford
Theaterworks and the Pleasance Theatre in London, Scott moved to New York City in late 2000. Since then, he has been designing there and around the country, amassing over 180 credits, including

Illyria and The Alchemists (Prospect Theater), A Ritual of Faith (Theater Row) and dozens of other productions in NY and NJ. Scott is a frequent designer for the LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts and the Jenny Wiley Theatre in Prestonsburg, KY and has had stints as the resident designer for the Union High School Performing Arts Company and the Nightingale-Bamford School. Regional credits include productions at Theatreworks Colorado Springs, The Salt Marsh Opera (RI and CT), The St. Petersburg Opera (FL), The Janiec Opera at The Brevard Music Center (NC), The Meadow Brook Theatre and Grand Valley State University (both in MI), The Barter Theatre and Ash Lawn Opera (both in VA), The Palace Theater (NH), The Shakespeare Theater of NJ, The John W.
