WFT's new Director of Education: Lloyd Woodcock
WFT is pleased to welcome Lloyd Woodcock to the Wheelock community as Wheelock Family Theatre’s new Director of Education. Lloyd began on July 1 and already has endeared himself to students, parents, and teachers alike. Prior to WFT, he worked with the celebrated “TADA! Youth Theatre” in New York. As the former Theatre Coordinator of the New York City Department of Education’s public schools, Lloyd oversaw multiple programs and collaborations, including those with the Shubert Foundation and Music Theatre International Broadway Jr.
While in New York City he served as Associate Director of The Forum Project, where he created programming that promoted dialogue around issues of power, privilege, and oppression. He also assisted with the planning of professional development workshops for educators, activists, and community-based workers. As Site Director of Wingspan Arts, Lloyd supervised operations of their after-school programs and served as a liaison between the principal, school staff, and parents. He also oversaw administration, curricula, and staffing for the organization’s Education Department. Lloyd earned an MSEd in Educational Theatre from the City University of New York [CUNY] City College in New York. We are thrilled that he is now a member of WFT’s team!
