Tiffini Minatel

Tiffini Minatel (Costume Designer/Associate Producer/Mgmt Coordinator) spent most of her college years in the costume shop. Being taught how to sew at age 12 by her mother proved to be a great asset in the Off-Off Broadway community when she landed in the city in1991. Since then, Tiffini has designed costumes for almost every show in which she performed and then some! Most notably, Gold Coast Shakespeare’s3 seasons of Shakespeare In The Park, Long Island; 2 seasons with King’s County Shakespeare, Brooklyn; DiCapo Opera, NYC; and most recently, Rising Sun Performance Company’s “Shhh…It’s a Speakeasy”. It’s nice to be back after a very long break! After “retiring” from the restaurant business and enjoying1-½ years of not working, Tiffini decided it was time to get back to the theater! She started working with Rising Sun as an Administrative intern in September of 2006. She was interested in learning how to transfer her restaurant operations skills to theater, her first love. So far Tiffini has learned how to: manage theaters, hire actors & techies, find inexpensive/free rehearsal space, find & use free publicity, write grants(sort of!) and how to throw a successful fundraiser party! And she’s still not done learning! Her goal is producing a show and learning everything it takes to do so!
