Sophie Peterson

Actor

Growing up in Canterbury, Sophie was always a keen sportsperson but discovered a love of performing in her later high school years and it's been keeping her busy ever since! She graduated from the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art (NASDA) in 2016 and in 2017 she launched her own production company, So Keen Productions. She has since produced several musical theatre and cabaret performances in Christchurch.

This isn't her first time performing for young audiences either. She's done a number of children's shows at The Court Theatre including The Cat in the Hat, Badjelly the Witch and most recently, Puff the Magic Dragon.

Sophie is quite the social butterfly and enjoys spending time with family and friends, surfing, exploring, and hanging out at the beach. She loves acting because it allows her to step outside of herself and try on many different hats!
