About Sofia

Sofia Faus was born and raised in Texas City, Texas, a coastal, oil refinery town that neighbors the historic Galveston Island. Sofia demonstrated an interest in theatre from an early age; she took every opportunity to perform that her small community offered. She made the move to the Big Apple at age 18, joining Manhattan School of Music's inaugural Musical Theatre class. During her time at MSM, she worked with renowned Musical Theatre artists, such as: Boyd Gaines, Randy Graff, Luis Perez, Liza Gennaro, Robin Morse, and many others. Sofia has performed professionally for Quisisana Resort, the Edinburgh International Festival, and a handful of new works. Some of her favorite roles include: Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Doria in Smile, Texas in Cabaret, and Fiona in Shrek the Musical. During the pandemic, Sofia worked as an intern for St. Andrew's School of Fine Arts in Houston. As an intern, she worked and performed for children, and she manned the social media accounts for the school. She was later hired to write and direct a musical theatre piece for their Creative Arts Camp in 2021 and 2022. Throughout the end of 2021 and half of 2022, she studied abroad in Spain and Costa Rica, fulfilling a life-long goal of becoming conversationally fluent in Spanish. She spent the rest of the time solo-traveling to 17 different European countries, learning a great deal about European art, history, and politics in the process. Sofia is a citizen of the USA and Spain. In addition to performing, traveling, and learning Spanish, Sofia enjoys swimming, going to museums, walks in nature, and spending quality time with her family.
