It’s the delicious new musical that became the crème de la crème of Broadway, but Sara Bareilles has confirmed Waitress is looking to transfer to the West End....
Sophie Thomas was born in Luton, Bedfordshire. Her love for theatre began in 2001 when she joined Stagecoach Theatre Arts in Dunstable and she has never looked back. Being a theatre geek for as long as she can remember, she has performed in musicals and concerts in iconic locations such as the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall.
Graduating with a History degree from the University of Warwick in 2018, Sophie was heavily involved in student media. She wrote for The Boar, the University’s student paper as well as presented radio shows on RAW1251AM, the University’s radio station where she won Best Show and Best Presenter in 2018. Whilst at university, Sophie also joined Music Theatre Warwick, where she ran workshop sessions as part of a committee and took part in musicals including Avenue Q, playing Kate Monster. She has also performed with The Improv Musical at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Jacks on Broadway during her year abroad in Flagstaff, Arizona. Outside of theatre, Sophie enjoys watching live comedy, going to see television shows being filmed and drinking too many seasonal coffees from high street chains during the festive season.
After completing work experience placements at ITV News, The Times and talkRADIO, Sophie joined Encore Tickets as Digital Copywriter in September 2018, and will write for LondonTheatre.co.uk as part of her role.
