Role at Bravo Academy
Production Assistant & Administrator
BFA in Acting from the University of British Columbia
Bonnie (she/her) is a Finnish-Canadian theatre artist and administrator who is a recent Toronto transplant from the West Coast. She is thrilled to be joining the Bravo team after many years in Vancouver working professionally with companies such as Bard on the Beach, Carousel Theatre for Young People, Arts Umbrella, and more as an actor, director, technician, improviser, educator, and even juggler! Bonnie holds a BFA in Acting from the University of British Columbia, where she was the recipient of the Joy Coghill Award in Theatre, and she also holds a certificate from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. While at UBC, Bonnie minored in Anthropology, and is passionate about making arts and culture spaces as accessible and exciting to everyone as they have been for her.
Some of Bonnie’s favourite musical theatre roles have included Jo March in Little Women, and workshopping/originating two characters in TITUS: The Light and Delightful Musical Comedy of Titus Andronicus in Vancouver, combining her two loves: re-imagining Shakespeare, and musical theatre. As a multidisciplinary theatre artist, Bonnie is excited to wear many hats at Bravo, and to share her love of music theatre with people of all ages. She loves nothing more than encouraging young people to tell their own stories and explore new ones with limitless imagination and boundless empathy.
