For many of the performances at the Naples Players’ production of Les Miz, currently in a month-long run at the Sugden Community Theatre in Naples, the face belongs to Sophia-Belle Carrasquillo, an eight-year-old girl playing her first major theatrical role. She lives with her parents in Naples, but comes every weekend to visit her grandparents, Carol and Tony Costantino, at their waterfront home on Marco Island.
Sophia is a determined, self-possessed young lady, and when opportunity knocked, she was ready to answer the call.
