About Janet Gigliotti

Oh, the about section. That place where you have to talk about yourself and tell everybody who you are and what you do and share things of interest. So… are you interested in the fact that I have two old tabby cats and I live in Vancouver with my husband, Sean? Maybe. I love creating theatre with artists who push me to grow in my craft and I find that especially fulfilling with new works. What else do you need to know about me that isn’t on my resume? I used to teach high school. I did my undergrad in Speech Sciences and a diploma in Special Education at UBC, followed by an MA in Admin and Leadership at San Diego State University. It was a great career and I had wonderful students and amazing colleagues and they’re the ones who encouraged me to pursue theatre. So, I did. I’ve been told I have mad organizational skills. I’m that person with a label maker and anything you need – I know where it is. This skill comes in handy in the corporate stage management part of my life. And, thanks to my grade one teacher, Mrs. Noble, I’m an EXCELLENT reader and therefore quite adept at technical voice over work. I really love doing VO work!

But on a serious note, I like to play online scrabble; I have been known to nurse a glass or two of red wine; I adore ballroom dancing and used to dance competitively. I miss it a lot. Wanna know a secret? I dream of becoming a fierce tap dancer … one day. I have a fabulous family who I love spending time with and, every once in a while, I go skiing. Also, fall is my favourite season. No pun intended. I live in Vancouver but Sean and I love to be jet setters and have been known to show up unexpectedly at a party in Boston or Stratford or New York. Invitations welcome. My favourite projects to date have been: developing a fringe production of Britta Johnson’s fabulous show “Life After”; performing in “Fun Home” at the Vancouver Arts Club; and getting to know Judy Garland through Peter Quilter’s play “End of The Rainbow” – I could happily play Judy for the rest of my life. Most importantly, the thing you need to know about me is that I love what I do, I feel excited about the opportunities I have had, and, in words I sang, in a process I adored, I take adventures “day by day”. So bring ’em on!
