At the tender age of five, BEVERLY SANDERS began her stage career in the San Francisco Opera company production of Barber of Seville joining her mother who was an opera singer and a soloist. She decided then that the stage was for her.

For the past 40 years she has been performing in nightclubs, theatre, films, and television. She started in television on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, then co-starred in Lotsa Luck with Dom DeLuise, Rhoda with Valerie Harper and CPO Sharky with Don Rickles. Her films include And Justice For All, Queen of the Stardust Ballroom and Magic. For ten years, she was the National Spokeswoman with Arm And Hammer Baking Soda.

Along with Sylvia Walden and Dolores Mann she started a theatre called “Room For Theatre” and began a directing career. The theatre was established in an old house in Los Feliz, which was a converted antique store/restaurant and appropriate for American plays from the early 20th century.

Beverly directed the first show, Old Acquaintance and used the antique lamps for lighting. Later the theatre moved to Studio City and for eight years delighted audiences and was chosen to be part of the 1984 Olympics Arts Festival.

She was chosen to participate in the AFI Directing Workshop for Women and made a film Callback which was honored in film festivals.

She has performed all over the country and acted in and wrote a one-person show Yes Sir That’s My Baby.

Currently she is teaching various courses in acting at both UCLA and USC while continuing writing and directing.
