Choreographer: Katrina Gooding

Tired of the big smoke's bright lights and constant applause, THE DIVINE MISS BETTE is in dire need of a soil change and has decided to go bush in 2016.

Following several sell-out seasons both in Australia and overseas (aka Tassie), Catherine Alcorn channels the people's diva, Bette Midler in THE DIVINE MISS BETTE. The Australian said 'Alcorn's rendition elevated her titillating tribute to a tender triumph.'

Bawdy, brash and even more buxom than the original (yes, it's possible) this whirlwind of a show will leave you breathless and begging for more!

With all of Bette's great hits, including Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, The Rose, Friends and more.

When Bette Midler first came to Oz, she said: 'You gotta keep quiet about this place. You don't know the deadbeats who are gonna come here when they find out!' So now she's coming to you!

The Divine Miss Bette has its own website:

"Alcorn is masterful" - THE COURIER MAIL

"What a performer! Alcorn is practically flawless. A rare gift." - Nathan Slevin, THEATREPEOPLE.COM.AU

"The nuanced manner in which Alcorn channels Bette Midler is outright clever and has you wondering whether it is possible an impersonator can be a better version of the original." - AUSSIE THEATRE

"Alcorn is practically flawless. Rather than trying to imitate or caricature Midler’s voice, both speaking and singing, Alcorn instead gives us the odd gesture or subtle nuance to capture the legendary performer and allowing her own talent to take centre stage." -

"See this diva before she’s on Broadway”Georgia Costello, Theatre Alive
