Playwrights, Composers, Lyricists and Authors
Nathan Hartswick was raised in northeastern Vermont, where theater was a family business – his parents and grandparents owned and operated the Vermont Children's Theater, a nonprofit organization dedicated to involving young people in the performing arts. Nathan had roles at VCT as a child and later wrote plays, taught workshops, and directed performances at the theater.
After studying music at the Crane School of Music and English at the State University of New York at Potsdam, Nathan spent many years in New York City, where he worked as an advertising copywriter and taught lessons and workshops in theater and music to students of all ages.
Currently Nathan lives in Burlington, VT, where he and his wife Natalie Miller own and operate Vermont Comedy Club, which produces standup, improv and sketch comedy shows and offers classes and workshops in the art of comedy to students of all ages.
