Born and raised in southern California, Janelle is a passionate, enthusiastic, and energetic singer, dancer, and actress. Janelle has been performing since the age of three and quickly learned that by standing on a stage sharing her passion with others, she had the ability to touch people’s lives. Janelle has always believed that to change the life of an individual is to change the world. Each person coming into a performance space will leave different than they came in. Whether it’s making someone smile, laugh, cry, or even angry, the ability to make others feel is one that Janelle believes is the best aspect of being a performer.
Janelle Good is a graduate of Rockford University with her BFA in Musical Theatre and minors in Dance and Psychology. There she studied various techniques including Lessac, Meisner, Laban Movement, Shakespeare, Comedy of Manners, Restoration, and several dialects. In addition to performing she also had the opportunity to direct and choreograph several works throughout her collegiate career. During her time at Rockford University she worked closely with an Equity theatre and received her EMC card. She also earned a SAFD recommend pass in Hand to Hand Stage Combat. Upon graduating, Janelle was the 2019 recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award for excellence in singing, dancing, and acting.
Janelle has performed across the world from California to Time’s Square in New York, London’s West End, and the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. Traveling has always been a part of who Janelle is, and she hopes to explore as much of the world as possible throughout her lifetime.
Janelle never settles for anything less than extraordinary, and always tries to serve as a reminder that kindness, a good attitude, staying true to yourself, and working hard will take you farther than anything else. And above all, in everything she does, Janelle likes to abide by the wise words of Donald O’Connor: “make 'em laugh.”
