Janice Rumschlag - Actress
Janice Rumschlag (she/her/hers) is your quirky, energetic, smart AF best-friend (who may secretly love wearing tiaras and playing with Barbies as an adult...). She's an actress, improviser, and some-times singer. Janice draws inspiration for her characters from strong, independent, smart, badass women (past and present!).
She relocated to the Bay Area from 2014 -2019, however the siren song of Chicago's innovative store-front theatre and improv comedy scene brought her back home to the Windy City just in time for the pandemic in early 2020.
