Jessica Broutt

Our intern last summer was Jessica Broutt from UC San Diego. She was terrific and a tremendous help to us for the 10 weeks she was here at the Fountain last summer.  She also had a wonderful experience herself:

“I can tell you first hand that not only is the Fountain Theatre intimate and excellent because of its space and the theatre produced here, but because of the people who work here as well, ” she says. “I have been spoiled working for any other organization because now I know what being an intern should be like, and I can’t wait for my next opportunity to come back. I just loved working at The Fountain.”

Meet Our New Intern, Jessica Broutt

I’m Jessica, the new development intern for the Fountain Theatre. During the academic year, I’m a student at UC San Diego and major in Literature/Writing, but this summer I get the pleasure of being back home in Los Angeles and working at the Fountain.

Though my focus at college is primarily writing and reading, I have always been involved with theatre, since so far, it is the great love of my life. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, I was part of a children’s theatre company, called CARA productions, and saw as many stage shows as I could afford all throughout Los Angeles. Now residing in La Jolla, not much has changed. I have a lot more reading to do, but I am still able to see some of the great performance art San Diego has to offer, and even have the privilege of being a script reader at the San Diego Repertory Theatre. I also spend my time going to the beach, checking out the amazing galleries of downtown, and have become very familiar with the UC San Diego Library.

When I found out I was going to be interning for The Fountain this summer, words cannot describe how excited I was to be part of such an amazing team. Working with a theatre that puts out thought-provoking and unique work would have been exciting no matter what I was doing, but being their development intern is probably the best job I could have asked for. As an arts major at a public university, I have always felt that this area does not get the kind of attention it deserves. In this way, having the opportunity to help The Fountain with fundraising, grant writing, and whatever else is needed, really sparked my interests. I know I will learn a lot from working at this theatre and cannot wait to see what the rest of the summer holds!
