Sofia Benderski

. . .

Sofia Benderski (Jane) is thrilled to be making her Syracuse Stage debut as Jane in Mary Poppins. Sofia is 12 years old and a seventh grader at Onondaga Hill Middle School. She has performed in numerous productions associated with Syracuse Children’s Theatre, Town of Manlius, Landmark Theatre, Peaceful Schools, and A Class Act NY (NYC pre-professional programs). A few favorites would be The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Into the Woods (Little Red), Annie (Annie), and Les Miserables (Little Cosette). Sofia would like to thank SCT where she first started and fell in love with the theatre, as well as her friends, family and teachers for supporting her throughout this journey.  A special thanks to her theatre coaches, especially Shawn Forster and her voice coach, Beth Quackenbush. Sofia would also like to thank the cast, production team, and everybody else who is involved with this wonderful show. Most of all she’d like to thank her parents for being supportive, driving her back and forth to long rehearsals and shows, and just being loving parents. Lastly, Sofia would like to remind everyone that, “Anything can happen if you let it!”
