Meet the Monkeys


Janette is no stranger to the Pittsburgh area stage, performing in opera, operetta, musicals, plays, improv, and standup for the past 20 years. She loves the challenge, timing, and spontaneity of improv. Also a playwright and writer, Janette is a 2017 Maenad Fellowship winner at Chatham University for creative writing and a 2015 Arts MODE Fellowship awardee in play writing through New Sun Rising LLC.

Fun Fact: Janette was not born in a Venezuelan butcher shop, despite her parents telling her she was until she was 35. As it turned out, she was born in regular Venezuela. True story.
