Sophie Lampel trained at The University of Ballarat (Performing Arts) and is an International Fellow of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre London. She works as an actor, theatre producer and pilates instructor. Her main producing work is with the creation, development and management of Essential Theatre. The company recently collaborated with Three Birds Theatre on their new work Enter Ophelia which had a sell out season at La Mama in early 2018.
Other performance highlights with Essential Theatre include Antony (Julius Caesar), Nurse (Romeo & Juliet), Leonata/Dogberry (Much Ado About Nothing), Viola (Twelfth Night) and the Dromio Twins (The Comedy of Errors) to name a few.
Sophie is looking forward to taking on the role of Bottom in their latest Shakespeare in the Vines production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream touring to wineries this summer. She has also been fortunate to work with a number of terrific independent theatre companies in Melbourne over the past 20 years.
