Dr. Nancy Swortzell

It is with great sadness to learn that Dr. Nancy Swortzell, mentor and co-founder of the NYU Program in Educational Theatre passed away July 31, 2011. She had a tremendous influence on me and many others who had the benefit of her tutelage. I was fortunate to have been cast in a production directed by her, And Then They Came for Me at the Provincetown Playhouse. I particularly loved listening to her personal anecdotes during rehearsal. She was saucy, sweet, volatile and vibrant. She was and will remain to be an inspiration to all! She will be sorely missed.
