Bonnie made her theatre debut in the West End at the tender age of seven in 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, making such an impact that the producers took her to America with the show for a highly successful run on Broadway. For this performance, at the age of ten, Bonnie was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.

Equally successful on stage and television, Bonnie won a British Soap Award for her role as Carmel Kazemi in EastEnders and most recently reached the final of ITV’s The Masked Dancer. Bonnie also appeared in the 2006 series of ITV1’s Dancing On Ice, skating her way to the final and returned for the All Stars season in 2014. Her other television credits include The Catherine Tate Show and BBC’s Doctor Who where she has just returned to her role of the Doctor’s assistant, Melanie Bush.

Jac Yarrow made his professional and West End debut as the title role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, for which he was nominated for the 2020 Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical, the WhatsOnStage Award for Best Actor in a Musical and won The Stage Debut Award for Best West End Debut. He reprised the role of Joseph for the UK and Ireland Tour of the show and a run at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre. He was most recently seen in Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends at the Gielgud Theatre and as Pippin in Pippin – 50th Anniversary Concert at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

LES MISÉRABLES will enter its 40th record-breaking year in London this October.
