HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I hope the start of 2014 finds you happy and healthy!
After a whirlwind season of spreading musical holiday cheer-hey, it’s what we do….- the new year brings new excitement.
As many of you know, in addition to performing,I love to teach and have been doing so in varying capacities for over 10 years. My latest venture is one I’m incredibly excited about! I will be joining blossoming company, SWADDLE WADDLE, to teach two classes at the adorable children’s bookstore on w. 18th street: Books of Wonder!
It’s so WONDERFUL that the store in the movie “you’ve got mail” was based on it!!
Perhaps the most wonderful part has been creating my own, original curriculum to update their “movement and minds” class and originate a new class: “little expressions”.
With original dances, language arts, HENRIETTA THE OPERATIC CHICKEN, and much, much more, I can’t wait to see what the semester has in store!

Enjoyed a day making travelers way more enjoyable with some holiday caroling!
Such a treat to sing with these beautiful ladies!
This was a special dedication to those still in and those I met in Hawaii with
Sarah Drake-Tambini and Carly Kincannon-AKA-The Manhattan Dolls!
Love, Val Doll

The Sugar Plum Fairy (MEEEEEE!)
Very Excited to have been asked back for the role of THE SUGAR PLUM FAIRY in Nutcracker: The Musical by Nancy Holson, the Emmy Award Winning Writer of “The News In Revue” (Off-Broadway-19 year run) and much more!
Using Tchaikovsky’s incredible score, this is a hilarious and enjoyable re-telling of the classic tale from the perspective of the EVIL mouse queen and her terrorizing of the Nutcracker Kingdom!
And GUESS who will be joining us in the lead, MOUSEYRINKS, the hilarious and over dramatic queen of the mice and our fabulous villain??!
Ms. White is an INCREDIBLE Tony Award winning Broadway Veteran whose 1996 Tonys performance was one of the things that made me want to be IN this business (yes I realize she played a down and out hooker beltress but she was EVERY SHADE OF FIERCE!!).
More info on Ms. White and Nancy Holson/Holson Productions can be found via the below links!
Join us THIS MONDAY, DEC 16 AT 230PM if you can for a reading! Please email me for tickets so I can reserve your space!

I am Excited to have recently completed an amazing contract in Hawaii on the Pride of America as a Principal Singer with Norwegian Cruise Lines!!
What a priveledge to get to perform for thousands of guests and in my free time enjoy the INCREDIBLE Hawaiian Islands.
From the active volcano Kilauea on the Big Island, to the breathtaking beauty of the Na Pali coast on Kauai…from the lavender farm on the way to a mind blowingly beautiful sunset atop mount Haleakala on Maui to the incredibly beautiful plants and exotic species…I feel beyond blessed to get to travel the world doing what I love.
I’m in Hawaii for a bit longer-enjoying the sights and taking it in as much as humanly possible before heading back to the mainland sometime in the near future! Today I hiked to a waterfall and found white ginger growing in the wild…among a ton of other awesome things. Yes, that’s going in the scrapbook;);)
A few potential performance opportunities in the works do check back here for the latest! Mahalo!!
