In 2015, Sadie made history by becoming the youngest actress to ever star in a Broadway show (The Audience). On stage she has also appeared in productions such as Annie and Les Misérables. Not only does Sadie have an impressive list of acting credits under her belt; she is also passionate about dance, having trained with several different instructors in ballet, jazz and hip hop styles.
