Sophie Begg

Sophie is 20 years old and following her ‘A’ levels is taking a year out before going to Drama School.

She joined DMTC in 1998 to play the part of Gretl in our production of ‘The Sound of Music‘.

In the 10 years she has been with DMTC, she has appeared in 15 of our productions, including a wide range of musicals, pantomimes and concerts.

Sophie has also played the title role in ‘Annie‘ for Newcastle Operatic Society at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle, as well as young Cosette in the national touring production of ‘Les Misérables‘ at the Telewest Arena, Newcastle. This was her first professional production.

Sophie was delighted to be cast in the title role of ‘Gigi‘ and she received the first Mary Hamilton Award for her stunning performance. Earlier this year Sophie appeared again at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle playing the part of Miss Dorothy in the Newcastle Operatic Society production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie”.

She is now looking forward to playing Chava in our centenary production of “Fiddler on the Roof”.
