Sophie Cadorette (Compere/Mrs. Jordan) first discovered her adoration of theatre when she was dragged along to the Secondary School Shakespeare Festival at the Folger Shakespeare Library with her english-teacher father’s West Potomac High School class. Somehow, while observing the shenanigans therein, she became the Robinson High School theatre troop’s living prop, thereby acting in her first roles variously as a corpse, a barrel, and a sword. Since then, Sophie has enjoyed attending the MVCCT summer theatre camp, channeled Jeremy Irons’ Scar in the Woodley Hills Elementary School production of The Lion King, and as the Matron of Agrabah in the Walt Whitman Middle School production of Aladdin, Jr. She spends what remaining spare time she’s got penning fan-fiction and role-playing game stories, and coding skins for Minecrafting friends. Thanks to everyone involved in this production for their time, energy, and for the fun!
