#TBT Nancy and Lowell Swortzell, 1966

By Jonathan Jones

Next year, we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Program in Educational Theatre. So much has transpired during our history at NYU and we will have multiple opportunities to reflect on the historic contributions of the Program during the next 18 months. Starting the journey, I present this image of Program co-founders Nancy and Lowell Swortzell collaborating on a production of Gammer Gurton’s Needle by John Still in the very first year of the Program: 1966.

If you have photographs or memories from the Program that you would like to share with the Educational Theatre community on the blog, please let me know. I can be reached at jonathan.jones@nyu.edu
