Janet Stambolian is the co-founder of Girls Nite Out, which produces theatrical production with strong roles for female performers. Janet has been performing for as long as she's been alive; it's in her blood. She performed in Los Angeles from 1975-1992 with the music/comedy team of Fink & Grippo and in community theater in Santa Monica, studied improvisation with actor Lee Garlington, sang in the L.A. Women's Community Chorus and in an all-girl rock 'n roll band, The Cherry Cokes before moving to Vermont in 1992.

Janet has been seen in seven Lyric Theatre musicals - most memorably as the Mayor of Munchkinland in The Wizard of Oz. Community theater appearances include Jake's Women, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Crossing Delancey, and, in the spring of 2014, Memory Palace by local playwright Maura Campbell as part of the Full Circle Festival on Aging. She brought the beloved character Ouiser Boudreaux to life in GNOP's inaugural production of Steel Magnolias, followed by Mavis Flowers in The Hallelujah Girls, and Toni in The Family of EWE. A native Jersey girl, Janet received a degree in P.R. and an M.Ed. from Boston University before moving to L.A. in 1975 to become a carpenter.

She currently resides in Burlington and will continue to put her love of performing and her business skills to use on behalf of GNOP.

The Unmentionables are Vermont's most seasoned long form improv team. This group of quick-witted improvisers has been performing for 4 years throughout New England at bars, theaters, town halls, hotel conference rooms, crepe restaurants, bowling alleys, and even an abandoned Jazzercise studio. In November 2015 they became the MainStage long form improv troupe of Vermont Comedy Club, performing every Thursday night. The team has been featured at The Green Mountain Comedy Festival, The Hartford Improv Festival, The Montreal Improv Festival, The Providence Improv Festival, and The Del Close Marathon in NYC.
