There are so many reasons to be happy, and one of those is because the highly acclaimed Divine Miss Bette is coming to the Sunshine Coast!
Trained by Steve Ostrow, the man who discovered Bette Midler himself, Catherine Alcorn is proving to be one of the country’s top cabaret performers
The ever-enchanting Catherine Alcorn will beautifully expose the triumphant tale of musical sensation, Bette Midler. For over four years, Catherine Alcorn has been wowing audiences both nationally and internationally with her smash hit show The Divine Miss Bette. Celebrating the music of Bette Midler and more.
In 2013, The Divine Miss Bette was the highest grossing show of Sydney’s Glen Street Theatre season, selling over 2400 seats across their seven night run.
The show has toured and enjoyed sold out seasons all around Australia and has headlined major cabaret festivals including Noosa Long Weekend Festival, New Zealand’s Right Royal Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Ballarat Cabaret Festival and Perth Fringe Festival.
The Divine Miss Bette is a sensational hi energy trip down Midler lane, reminiscent of the 1970's Palace Theatre tour including the Staggering Harlettes and those wonderful Sophie Tucker Jokes! Bawdy, brash and just as glamorous as the original, Alcorn will push ALL of your boundaries.
Following sell out seasons at Melbourne's The Butterfly Club in May, Sydney cabaret venue Slide and having featuring at the 2011 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, The Divine Miss Bette is now ready to explode onto stages right across Australia.
The show features a live 4 piece band, shockingly hot choreography and a fabulous repertoire that will satisfy every Midler fan including Friends, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and Miss Otis Regrets to the mesmerising Am I Blue and Hello in There all before you're taking on the ride down Hollywood Avenue with Wind Beneath My Wings and The Rose.
A show not to be missed, why not get a few friends together and enjoy this dazzling performance. One night only at Coolum Civic Centre!
