Annie Liu (they/them) is a lighting designer, producer, and creative collaborator based in Seattle, WA on occupied Duwamish territory.
Annie holds a BFA in Theatre Design & Technology from Santa Fe University of Art and Design in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Annie was the resident lighting designer for the Santa Fe Playhouse prior to joining their staff as the Lighting & AV Supervisor and later, the Production Manager. With the Playhouse, their career launched into a world of producing and designing traditional theatre in nontraditional settings in the beautiful state of New Mexico, where they resided for 9 years.
From there, Annie threw tradition out the window and moved halfway across the country to Seattle, WA to join the internationally acclaimed contemporary performance venue, On the Boards, as their Associate Producer. Annie now attends graduate school at Seattle University, pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Arts Leadership with a projected graduation of Spring 2025.

Annie is grateful to live and work on the unceded lands of the Duwamish, Muckleshoot, and Coast Salish peoples.
