Raised in Vermont and a graduate of Lyndon State College, Cory has always had a passion for organizing large entertaining events. His television news and video production career took him from Vermont to Las Vegas and eventually onto Los Angeles where he was introduced to the dazzling world of burlesque. After a year of co-producing a monthly show in Redondo Beach, CA, Cory now produces the Las Vegas Burlesque Festival and assists with the Hollywood Burlesque Festival. The Vermont Burlesque Festival remains his favorite as it takes place in his home state and loves introducing performers and participants to all those fantastic Vermonters.

Kyla was always told she had a big bossy mouth....well some years back she figured out the best way to use it! What she lacks in height she makes up for in volume and attitude! She stage manages with the same authority and sweet bitchiness that any queen bee would! Organized chaos is her specialty and you bet your ass she will make it yours as well! She came to be apart of the wonder that is burlesque via her love of voyeurism and a debt owed to the one and only Alexa Luthor....who Kyla credits for introducing her to the amazing horror of being a theatre person!

Jon has spent his life in the pursuit of the elusive laugh. Having studied at such hallowed Chicago institutions as The Annoyance Theater, iO Chicago, and The Second City. He has performed with such improv teams as Alcatraz, Red, and Ice Cubists. Then he took the skills he learned and unleashed them on Vermont in such plays as "Death By Dessert", "Chapter Two", and "The 39 Steps and with his sketch duo Van Murat. He is also a talented writer and content generator responsible for the online presence of Green Mountain Cabaret. He is incredibly excited to help melt the snowbanks around Vermont's inhibitions with the Vermont Burlesque Festival.

Diana Langlois has enough grace and talent as a mole in the bright sunshine, She is fascinated by the world of burlesque....the feathers, the costumes...the glitter!!!!!!;)   She is currently residing in the country side of Vermont with her husband and a quite articulate 8 year old son. Her non glamourous side works at a car dealership while her energy is based in the world of soccer, cubscout leading and believing she can train to run a 5k.  “I am proud to be a part of the a team, as well as getting to work with talented people.”

Ryan is very busy with Vermont Burlesque Festival art work.  ...Besides, its really hard to see the computer screen through that visor to type a really good bio.  But it works GREAT for graphic designing.

On stage she may play a fierce femme fetal, but in person she is friendly, approachable, and excited to be a part of the Vermont Burlesque Festival team!
