SOPHIE KELLY-HEDRICK

BIOGRAPHY

Sophie grew up in Seattle, Washington. After making her professional debut in Seattle Repertory Theatre's production of Mac Beth at the age of 17, she moved to New York City to pursue Acting at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. She's now a rising senior, set to graduate in December 2021!

 

 The production of Mac Beth at SRT has since transferred twice, bringing Sophie along with it: Red Bull Theatre (NYC) in 2019 and Hunter Theatre Project (NYC) in 2020.

Sophie, along with the cast of Mac Beth (2020) was nominated for best revival of a play at the 2020 Lucille Lortel Awards and the 2020 Drama Desk Awards.

Sophie-- along with many Seattlites-- loves a cup of dark roast coffee, camping in the Pacific Northwest, and her civic responsibility! 

Current Projects

Throughout 2022 Sophie has had the pleasure collaborating with Charles Goforth and Broadway Podcast Network on The Lovely Dark Series. This series will include a selection of 10 audio plays, each  bringing their own twisted story and crew of characters, to be released weekly.

Throughout the pandemic Sophie has been fortunate enough to help develop multiple new plays through various new works programs. Most recently Sophie has helped launch Erica Schmidt's new adaptation/ direction of Shakespeare's HAMLET. Part of Seattle Repertory Theatre's brand new Plays in Process initiative.

Recently Sophie workshopped local Seattle playwright Holly Arsenault's new work entitled Court through Seattle Repertory Theatre's The Other Season Program. In November Sophie workshopped Jan Rosenberg's new play, GUSHER, also as a part of SRT's New Works program. December brought the holidays, and with that ACT Theatre's development of Holly Arsenault's new Untitled Christmas Play.

Reviews of Mac Beth at Hunter Theatre Project adapted and directed by Erica Schmidt

JANUARY 2020

"The all-female cast of “Mac Beth” makes a glorious physical and aural mulch of the stage...their adolescent stomps and bangs and splashes often qualify as laugh lines, fully earned...people sitting in the front row get thrillingly splattered as Macbeth’s witches boil and bubble." -The New Yorker

"The witches here engineer the proceedings, as teenage volatility says off with a head. These girls are beyond creepy, as their dark powers lead to dancing, flinging themselves about...This cast is really excellent, especially Ismenia Mendes and Sophie Kelly-Hedrick whose quirky voice is mesmerizing" -Times Square Chronicles

Reviews of Mac Beth @ Seattle Repertory Theatre adapted/directed by Erica Schmidt

JUNE 2018

"The three witches played by Sophie Kelly-Hedrick, Laakan McHardy, and Analiese Mereson Guettinger are harbingers of good things to come in the theater world. They displayed precise comedic timing, fierce energy, and decadent mischievousness. " -Broadway World 

"The “Double, double, toil and trouble” trio of witches are portrayed by Sophie Kelly-Hedrick (Witch 1), Laakan McHardy (Witch 2), and Analiese Emerson Guettinger (Witch 3), and they are irresistible....With delightful comedic timing...My favorite witch moment? When they stir up a brew of vile ingredients. Don’t invite these three to your potluck." -Queen Anne and Magnolia News
