Beloved Actress Bonnie Halverson is role model to musician daughter Sara Bareilles...

Bonnie (Bareilles) Halverson

"Ye shall know them by their fruits"
-Matthew 7:16 KJV

MOLLOY:  Could you tell me when you first became interested in drama?

HALVERSON:  As a Junior High School girl I was greatly inspired by having been taken to a production of "Oliver" featuring Davy Jones of the Monkees. This took place at the Circle Star Theatre and I was in love with Davy Jones. I was so drawn into the musical I forgot who he was.
A great life lesson about really getting into character.

MOLLOY: And your first performance?

HALVERSON:  Always being a "ham", my first play was in 8th grade. I had a part in "Our Hearts Were Young And Gay". I will always remember Miss Valla, a local community theater actress who insisted we always behave professionally.

MOLLOY:  At this point, can you estimate how many plays you have participated in?

HALVERSON: I would say between 40-50 stage shows overall in my lifetime.

MOLLOY:  Did you receive formal dramatic training?

HALVERSON:  I  studied for a Drama Major at Cal. State University at Hayward.

MOLLOY:  Do you have a favorite style of performance?


MOLLOY:  Your daughter Sara Bareilles is  known as a musician. Did you study music as a child?

HALVERSON:  I  did not study Music but when the girls were growing up we always had a piano.
We had many happy hours with performances upon the coffee table, from comedy to music shows.
Stacey is an actress/ singer/ mom who was very strong on stage. Jennifer is working in Improv in NYC. 

MOLLOY:  What are your plans for working your talent?

HALVERSON:  At this time I am "on hold" with family to care for. Long-term I will share the joys of Stacey's children and  joyful singing, Jennifer's Improv shows, and Sara's concerts.
