"Sooze encourages you to take chances
...and to believe in yourself"

Austin Moore landed her first professional role at age 12, when she was cast as Addy in the American Girl Revue in Chicago. Recently she appeared as Little TiMoune at Porchlight Music Theatre’s production of Once on This Island, which received a Jeff Nomination for Best Musical. Other favorite roles include ‘lil Inez in Hairspray, and Clara in Elmhurst Dance Theatre’s production of Nutcracker Highlights.

"Sooze is warm and friendly and energetic and fun! She has a way of making you feel comfortable, no matter what you are doing. She encourages you to take chances and to believe in yourself. Whether it is working on a monologue, improvisation, or song selection and interpretation, she inspires you to be the best that you can be. When I got the role of Little TiMoune, Sooze helped me perfect my accent so that I sounded like a true islander. Thank you, Sooze!" ~Austin
