Stella Grace Wahl is a passionate singer, actor, model, dancer and overall performer. She is 13 years old and in the 7th grade. She is represented by Mavrick Artists Agency in Los Angeles.
Stella has been performing since she was 6 years old. She has enjoyed roles in numerous theatre productions, including two seasons in the cast of How The Grinch Stole Christmas at The Old Globe Theater in San Diego, California. She also performed as Annika in Pippi Longstocking (San Diego Junior Theatre), JoJo in Seussical, James and the Giant Peach, High School Musical, Shrek The Musical (Christian Youth Theater San Diego) and Les Misérables (J*Company Youth Theatre). She recently acted in her first middle school show, Things That Go Bump In The Night where she played a zombie!
Stella is grateful to all the mentors in her life. She has studied voice with Karyn Overstreet Vocal Studio for 5 years, tap with Tamlyn Shusterman for 4 years, and acting with several acting coaches including Shauna Markey and Lisa Picotte of Young Actors Workspace. She loves auditioning for film and TV roles and aspires to one day appear on the “big screen.” Two acting experiences recently confirmed that she loves acting just as much as singing! She was lucky enough to recently star in a music video for an up and coming artist that will be released in June. She also acted in her first short film in April of this year.
Every summer for the past three years, Stella has had the incredible experience of summer camp with Broadway Artists Alliance in New York City where she met and was taught by numerous Broadway industry veterans and performers. As part of this program, she attended many Broadway productions. Two of her favorites are Beetlejuice and Mean Girls.
When she is not performing, she enjoys playing both guitar and piano. Ron DePuy of Ron DePuy Music Studio is her music teacher. She was inspired during covid stay at home orders to start writing her own music. She has been working with Cory and Julia Shuman of Little Bird Big Sound and is in the final stages of production for her debut single, which is expected to release this summer!
In school, Stella is active in her school’s drama club and dance team. She studies both classical and rock guitar at school and enjoys performing with her classmates every year. She is very grateful to her school, Francis Parker, for the well-rounded education that it provides and for all the arts opportunities that it offers. She has also enjoyed playing lacrosse at school for the first time in middle school! Although she has been a soccer player for most of life, it was fun to try a new sport.
In her free time, Stella enjoys traveling the world with her family. She has travelled to Greece, Ireland, Peru, Italy, Sicily, England, France and China in recent years. A true animal lover, Stella has two dogs, Sadie and Cassie and she hopes to work with dog rescue organizations when she is older as she truly believes every dog deserves and loving home.
