Dale Wallerstein (Vocal Director)

Dale is delighted to have had the opportunity to be the Vocal Director for this production of Les Miserables. To have witnessed the process and progress of all members of the ensemble, those experienced, and those who haven't sung before, has been an exciting and fulfilling experience for her. 

Dale began doing musical theater in 7th grade and continued in college, where she majored in Music, French, and Medieval studies. The next 3 decades was spent singing with choruses.  She is currently a member of the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra, and was blessed to have been sponsored so that she could perform with the group on their recent concert tour in Italy.

In 2003, she was cast as Yente in Imagination Theater's production of Fiddler on the Roof. Since that time, she has been Vocal Director for a dozen IT musicals, including L'il Abner, The Music Man, Wizard of Oz, Quilters, White Christmas, Camelot, and others. Most recently, she vocal directed A Little Princess, and portrayed the evil head-mistress, Miss Minchin, earning her an Elly nomination for her performance.

Even though rehearsals for Les Miserables are over and her work for this production is complete, you will see her at almost all performances smiling and so very proud of what this remarkable cast has accomplished. She hopes that you enjoy the production, and hopes,too, that you will sing (whether you think you can, or not) for the health of your heart, your soul, and your body. Peace.
