There are not many traditional paths into theatrical consulting. Our team consists of former venue managers, Broadway designers, fabricators, artistic programmers, architects, engineers, strategic planners, educators, installers, sustainability experts—the list goes on—and none of us had an identical path into the company. That’s why we love having conversations about ways into the industry and building new avenues for the next generation of venue experts.
To support this work, we have recently relaunched our internship program, dormant since the start of COVID-19. We think it’s an invaluable way to learn from new voices and to share our experience through a real-world, hands-on, collaboratively designed program. We always walk away better for the experience and hope our past interns can say the same.
This month, we are happy to welcome our newest intern, Brandall C. Jones, who will be based out of our Denver office and working with our Strategy & Operations team.
As the connectivity director with Atlanta’s True Colors Theatre, an arts administration M.A. candidate at Goucher College, and a frequent collaborator with many local and national arts organizations, Brandall draws from an active and diverse experience. His interests are expansive, and the broad scope of our Strategy & Operations team is largely what attracted him to the opportunity.
“Brandall is coming to this experience with a clear vision of what he wants to achieve,” shares Ali Sheehan Mignone, head of people, inclusion, and diversity at Theatre Projects. “He is excited to let his exploration of the Denver arts community inform his work upon returning to Atlanta. We were really pleased to work with Brandall on shaping an internship aligned with his interests, and we’re looking forward to learning from him in return.”
