Sunshine Coast Council's newly refurbished Coolum Civic Centre plays host to the glitz and glamour of The Divine Miss Bette on Saturday, February 13 at 7.30pm.

The Divine Miss Bette channels the exciting life of Bette Midler through the vivacious, gleaming and fabulous performer, Catherine Alcorn. Bette Midler has now celebrated 40 years, four Grammys, four Golden Globes, three Emmys, a Tony Award and tons of record-breaking performances since she hit the scene with her debut album the Divine Miss M, and is still going strong.

It's a life with a triumphant story to tell, and one that Miss Alcorn exposes beautifully. Since hitting the Sydney stages in 2010 with the hilarious cabaret tribute, The Divine Miss Bette, Catherine has had audiences in fits of laughter.

Her unique talent and flair has her labelled as one of the greatest cabaret artists of our time, and she will be on the Sunshine Coast for one very fun night. In 2013, The Divine Miss Bette was the highest grossing show of Sydney's Glen Street Theatre season, selling more than 2400 seats across its 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 backed by a five-piece band, featuring shockingly hot choreography and a fabulous repertoire that will satisfy every Midler fan.

Tickets are $42 for adults, $38 for concession holders and groups of eight or more, $37 for SCvip Members and $30 for young people under 25 years.

For individual or group bookings, please call Lake Kawana Community Centre on 5413 1400, or visit The Coolum Civic Centre is located on Park Street, off David Low Way, next to Jack Morgan Park.
