Introducing the Miranda Family Fellows

In December 2020, we announced the Miranda Family Fellowship Program, an ambitious new program designed to create a new point of entry into the American theatre field by providing talented early career professionals from historically excluded communities with the resources and training necessary to build their careers as the next generation of arts administrators or theatre technicians.

The announcement led to over 200 applications from around the country and we are excited to announce the inaugural Miranda Family Fellows cohort. Please join us in welcoming
Autumn J. Mitchell, Jeremy Pesigan, and Citlali Pizarro who will be joining the Woolly Family virtually this March, to pursue a wide range of responsibilities within the Production, New Work and Connectivity departments respectively.

Autumn J. Mitchell (she/they) is a freelance stage manager from the historical city of Savannah, Georgia who is delighted to join Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company as the Production Management Fellow! While at Woolly, Autumn will be aiding in the realization of the technical elements of all Woolly Mammoth productions in a safe and resource efficient manner, in service to Woolly’s artistic mission and commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and access. Their passion for theatre and art has always been rooted in their love for supporting creatives and the communities in which they come from. Autumn graduated from the illustrious HBCU, Alabama State University with a BA in Theatre and Performing Arts with a concentration in Technical Theatre. Their previous stage management credits include Until the Flood and Pass Over at Studio Theatre (DC), The Magical Musical Holiday Step Show with Step Afrika! (DC), and Fences and The Man of Destiny at American Players Theatre (Wisconsin). In addition to their stage management work, Autumn is an aspiring Production Manager and Theatre Operations Manager with the goal of opening their own non-profit theatre organization to support black and brown artists and technicians from marginalized communities in the south.
Jeremy Pesigan (he/they) is joining the New Work department and is excited to be fully immersed in the artistic process of Woolly’s unique season planning, new work development, and production dramaturgy processes. Jeremy is an artist from the Midwest. His previous directing credits include we are in the endtimes now by Marley Smith and staged readings of Extreme Home Makeover and Fabuloso by Makasha Copeland. They graduated from Northwestern University with a BS in Theater and Asian American studies, where they also received a Nikki Levy Queer Performance Grant from the Performance Studies Department. They are an aspiring amateur mycologist and a member of Anakbayan Chicago.
Citlali Pizarro (she/her) is joining the nationally acclaimed Connectivity department which links Woolly’s artistic mission with its social and political mission through artistic programs, community engagement, and audience enrichment activities. Citlali recently graduated from Swarthmore College, where she double-majored in Theater, focusing on social justice performance theory and practice, and an individualized major, Race and Gender in Education. While at Swarthmore, she gained experience acting, writing, and directing, and worked as a research and teaching assistant for “Performing Latinidad,” a course exploring diasporic experiences, decolonial theory, and the politics of “latinidad” through performance. As a student of transformative justice and prison abolition, Citlali believes in utilizing theater to envision better, more just worlds. Her work as a member of Students for Transformative Justice, Abolition, and Restoration (STAR), Women’s Resource Center associate, and editor for Voices, a student-run magazine centering marginalized students and social justice movements on campus, has greatly informed her artistic practice. She also works as a freelance journalist and is currently working on a musical with her friend and writing partner, Omar Camps-Kamrin. She is excited and honored to be the first Miranda Family Fellow in Connectivity at Woolly Mammoth.
The Miranda Family Fellowship Program is in partnership and with a lead gift from the Miranda Family Fund. Major support provided by the Patalano Family (Lou, Jodi, Ali & Will) with additional support from Kristin Ehrgood and Vadim Nikitine and the Verizon Foundation.
