May 16, 2016 -- Because of the caliber of the nominees whose applications we received, Girls Nite Out’s Board of Directors unanimously decided to make two awards instead of the one for which we had planned. Our two award recipients embody the qualities most highly prized by Girls Nite Out—artistic excellence combined with a collaborative, generous spirit and a commitment to using their skills and talents to elevate and inspire. We are proud to announce that Pearl Guerriere and Isabella Bertoni have been awarded Girls Nite Out Productions Scholarships for 2016. Congratulations! See our Scholarship Page for details
December 1, 2015 -- The success of Girls Nite Out Productions has been based on the support we’ve received from the greater Burlington community; therefore, it is with great joy that to honor the 5th anniversary of our company, the Co-Founders and Board of Directors announce an annual $500 scholarship awarded to a young woman completing high school or technical school who plans to continue her education in the Performing or Technical Arts.

Carole Vasta Folley is a funny lady. And she makes other people funny. Just watch The Family of Ewe and see if you don’t LOL.
October 7, 2013 --
Friendship takes many forms in the play “The Family of Ewe,” which opened Thursday in Burlington. There’s laughter and there’s tears. Sometimes there’s a well-timed extended middle finger, or a scathing remark that cuts right to the bone. In the end, though, there’s love and faithfulness.
October 2, 2013 -- Vermont Playwright Carole Vasta Folley produced her debut work, Pronouncing Glenn, in 2008.
September 27, 2013 -- The Family of Ewe premieres at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington on October 3 and plays through October 13. It's an original play written and directed by Vermonter Carole Vasta Folley and presented by Girls' Nite Out Productions, whose goal is to bring more female-centered shows to the stage. Eva visited a rehearsal to meet the almost all-female cast and got a sneak peek.
February 13, 2013 -- Why is it so hard to clean out our closets? Well, just about any article of clothing can carry a story, and preserving the tangible signs of a lifetime of emotional attachments may be the secret purpose of closets. It’s also the clever organizing principle of Love, Loss and What I Wore, currently staged by Girls Nite Out Productions at Main Street Landing’s Black Box Theater in Burlington.
February 8, 2013 -- The premise of “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” is that five women sit around telling stories about their clothes. That conceit is heightened in the Girls Nite Out version of the Nora and Delia Ephron play that opened Thursday with a display of designer gowns in the foyer outside the Main Street Landing Black Box Theatre.
February 7, 2013 -- The founders of Girls Nite Out Productions acknowledge they can make the theater company’s board of directors a little uncomfortable with their argumentative ways. Jennifer Warwick said she and co-founder Janet Stambolian sometimes get mad at each other and yell and scream and then have a good laugh about it.
January 11, 2013 -- In 2010, despairing of finding high quality theatrical roles for women, Jennifer Warwick and Janet Stambolian decided to start a company to create those roles. The newly formed Girls Nite Out Productions (GNOP) featured Steel Magnolias as its inaugural play, followed by The Hallelujah Girls and then a female production of The Odd Couple. This February, they will bring Nora and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss and What I Wore to Main Street Landing’s Black Box Theater. The show will have a two-week run, starting with Fashion Week and concluding with Valentine’s Day week. In conjunction with the show, the company will have an exhibit of vintage designer gowns, a photo exhibit of women ranging in age from 40 to 70 wearing those gowns and a Dress for Success clothing drive.
