Catching up with Gabriella Mingoia

We like to check in with our former interns to discover what new adventures they’re having and how being a Britt Intern contributed to their career goals. Gabriella was a Development Intern during 2013.

Education Fellow at Berkeley Repertory Theatre

Since graduating from Southern Oregon University in 2013, I have been working as an Education Fellow at the award-winning Berkeley Repertory Theatre. The fellowship is an 11-month program consisting of 16 professionals working in either the production or artistic side of the theatre. My fellowship at Berkeley Rep has been extremely valuable and I can’t begin to describe how much I’ve learned in the past 6 months. I work on behalf of the School of Theatre’s Teen Council program, an umbrella program for a variety of events/classes for Bay Area High School students. I function as an administrator, a marketing associate, a producer, and an educator. The most exciting aspect of my job is that I make sure that San Francisco Bay Area teens have access to theatre. I’ve learned directly from mentoring a teen, how important it is for the arts and the community to intersect. Working with teenagers has taught me how impactful community engagement really is.

My Future Goals

After my fellowship, I hope to continue to work in the Bay Area. I’m interested in producing community engagement projects that bring together a myriad of arts organizations and the communities they serve. In the future, I hope to get my MFA in Theatre Criticism. But honestly, my plans seems to change every day!  

How the Britt Internship Help Me Grow

I don’t think that I would be a fellow at Berkeley Rep if I hadn’t done my Britt Festivals internship. My mentors at Britt believed in my career goals and pushed me to pursue them. The skills I learned at the Britt were really applicable to my fellowship at Berkeley Rep. I still apply what I’ve learned to the daily tasks of the fellowship. It really prepared me administratively.
