Nathan Gwartney / Director of Marketing
Nathan is proud to be a part of Unicorn Theatre and is grateful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing staff and dedicated arts community. As an actor, director, producer and arts administrator, Nathan has been a part of over 150 stage productions over the last 24 years. His very first taste of theatre came in the form of an acting role. He played Michael in Georgeff-Baker Middle School’s 1995 production of “COMING OF AGE: THE MUSICAL” where he sang very loudly without hesitation or any sense of irony about the birds and the bees. He has been trying to live up to that very high standard of art ever since. Nathan holds a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Northeastern State University and a Master of Arts in Theatre from Oklahoma State University.
