Sophia Pearson


Assistant General Manager

Sophia has been an actor and improviser at the CTC since 2013, performing in over 20 productions. She graduated from Rhode Island College with a BA in Musical Theater, and (maybe not so) surprisingly spent the following years working as a Quality Support Associate for a large family medicine practice, a barista at Starbucks, and a Medicare Sales Associate at BCBS RI. Thankfully, she became a full-time staff member at the CTC in 2021, combining her love of theater and Excel spreadsheets, in the pursuit of making art that is meaningful and accessible for this community.
