SOPHIE ACKERMAN is making her TimeLine debut with THE AUDIENCE. She first appeared onstage as a vastly different young princess, a Royal Child in THE KING AND I (Lyric Opera). She has also appeared in commercials for Mondelez International, T. Rowe Price and Enjoy Life Foods. Sophie is a fourth grader at Bell Elementary and lives in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood, where she enjoys taking piano and voice lessons and riding around on her unicycle. She thanks Jim McCaffrey and Stewart Talent for their guidance, and she gratefully acknowledges the love and support of her Mom, Dad and little sister Isabel.
