About this event

What does it take to become the next big thing? The next iconic diva? Join this Brisvegas Bette, none other than Elizabeth Scales, as she leads you on a riotous journey with her "Empowering and insightful production" (★★★★ Kate Stark), Becoming Bette.

This hilarious & heartfelt original work is by no means an impersonation show. Join Bette as she takes you on a hilarious, semi-autobiographical journey of self discovery on her personal quest to define & refine what it takes to become the next great diva.

Becoming Bette is "Bold, strong, self-aware, kind, generous, spirited & unapologetic" (★★★★ Anywhere Fest).

It is 50 minutes of fun jam-packed with compelling storytelling, song, dance, iconic silverscreen film re-imaginings &, of course, a beautiful showgirl (because after all, "Behind every great diva is a beautiful showgirl.. Upstaged").

Becoming Bette is a show for anyone who has ever had a dream, an ambition 'to take Bette's advice. No permission required', celebrating who we are.
