Bonnie made her debut on the West End stage at the age of seven in a musical adaptation of Gone With The Wind at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The following year she played Baby June in Gypsy opposite Angela Lansbury at the Piccadilly Theatre, London. Bonnie made such an impact that the producers took her to America with the show for a national tour and highly successful season on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre. For this performance she was nominated for a Drama Desk Award at the age of ten.
In 1981, Bonnie joined the original London cast of Cats creating the role of Rumpleteaser at the New London Theatre.

She has toured the UK in Oklahoma!; Charlie Girl; 42nd Street; and as Miss Adelaide in the Donmar production of Guys And Dolls. Bonnie headlined the US cast of Fosse on its British leg of the international tour; shared much laughter with comedienne and writer, Sandi Toksvig on their hilarious show Short And Curly; and continues to present her own one woman concert in venues across the world.
