Bonnie is a multi-faceted composer who specializes in both musical theater and film scoring. Living in both the stage and the cinematic worlds allows her to write with an emotional sensitivity, "capturing the moment of the story through music." Through thoughtful instrument choices and a genuine love of the characters, she writes "what feels natural and honest" for the scene's emotions.
Bonnie won 1st place in Creative Arts Theater’s Original Playwright Contest with her original musical Ghosts in Chelyabinsk (Creative Arts Theater, 2019) for which she wrote book, music, and lyrics. She music directed and performed as a musician for the musical’s debut production (Creative Arts Theater, 2020.) She produced and edited the original cast album (2022.) Bonnie is the principal composer for Human: A New Ancient Musical (Lines in the Sky Productions, 54 Below, NYC, 2023), co-written by Krystin Lacey.
