Sophie Smyth
Actor / Creative / Music / Writing



Sophie Smyth is a singer, actor, dancer, and writer for stage and screen. 

Her cabaret The Aspie Hour, co-written and performed with Ryan Smedley, is an informative and delightfully irreverent cabaret exploring their experiences with Autism Spectrum Disorder, navigating the neurotypical world through the prism of their identical love — musical theatre. They have played to sold-out audiences across Victoria, NSW, and WA, enjoying successful seasons at Sydney Festival (2020), Perth Fringe World (2020), Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2018-19), Melbourne Writers Festival (2018) Ballarat Cabaret Festival (2017), and Stonnington Festival.

For her work on The Aspie Hour, Sophie was the recipient of the 2019 Green Room Award for Best Writing in a Cabaret and was nominated for Best Ensemble.

Sophie is developing a brilliant new television series and is a recipient of the prestigious Australians in Film development program, Untapped.

She is a Bachelor of Arts in Music Theatre graduate from Federation University’s Arts Academy.

    “…There were plenty of laughs, but also touching moments that brought tears to my eyes.”
    Stage Whispers

    “It's an absolute delight that shows how telling your story in the way you want to tell it is always the way to an audience's heart. You don't even have to know who Sondheim is to love it.”
    Sometimes Melbourne

    "...the lyrics of their songs will touch your heartstrings."
