Sophie the Sprite
Holiday programs are filling family calendars now that Thanksgiving is over and KJZZ commentator Amy Silverman has a very special program coming up on her calendar. You might remember her daughter Sophie – she’s eight, has Down syndrome and soon will have her professional theatre debut at the Herberger Theater in downtown Phoenix.
Frances Smith Cohen's Snow Queen runs weekends starting December 3rd through 18th at the Herberger - Sophie will appear in two matinees on Dec 3rd & 4th. Amy Silverman is managing editor at New Times & blogs about Sophie & her family on Girl In a Party Hat.com.
