Recent Happenings

Zoë spent these last few months both performing with Barter Theatre in their Winter Season productions of Jingle All the Way and The 12 Dates of Christmas and spreading holiday cheer through four-part Dickensian Christmas Caroling at Nationals Park and private parties with Clear Harmonies Productions.

In the coming months Zoë will be expanding her vocal studio through Meadowview Arts Center to accomodate more students and begin hosting student recitals! 

Additionally, she will be returning to Barter's Resident Acting Company for the 2022 Season which will be announced in mid-January. She's thrilled to see what Barter has in store for this next year and cannot wait to be a part of it.

About Me

Zoë Velling is an EMC professional, service-minded actor based out of the Washington DC area.


Since beginning voice lessons in elementary school, Zoë has felt the power of selfless art. She has found that performing is the best way for her to give back to the community (& world) that have given her so much. A lifelong learner, she is deeply rooted in growing from & through all experiences. 

In May of 2017, Zoë graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor's Degree in Vocal Performance with a concentration in Music Theatre.  

Immediately following graduation, Zoë began a program with The Barter Players in Abingdon, VA through The Barter Theatre- the State Theatre of Virginia! It is a heightened internship program designed to shape members into the best, most honest service-minded artists we can be. 

Aside from theatre, Zoë is passionate about international travel, poetry, running, yoga, & family. 

Lovely to meet ya! 



Zoë is thrilled to be continuing with Barter Theatre's Resident Acting Company for the 2022 Season! The season announcement will be hosted on January 25th - exciting casting details to come!
