Catherine Alcorn

 

Multi award-winning artist Catherine Alcorn, is one of Australia’s most in-demand entertainers renowned for her powerhouse vocals and razor-sharp wit. Hailed as a ‘must see!’ by the L.A. TIMES, the critically acclaimed chanteuse made her triumphant USA and Sydney Opera House debut in her most famous role as The Divine Miss Bette winning her the Best Cabaret Production in the 2018 Broadway World Awards. A firm fixture on the festival stage, Catherine has headlined the world’s most celebrated festivals including Sydney Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Tasmania’s Festival of Voices and Noosa Long Weekend.

Catherine’s other theatre credits include her Sydney Theatre Award-nominated cabaret Cathartic, 30 Something with Phil Scott, the Australian premiere of off-Broadway cult hit 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche, her award-winning cabaret Go Your Own Way: The Story of Christine McVie and Glen Street Theatre’s Cabaret In The Glen Festival in the role as Artistic Director. A passionate fundraiser, Catherine has produced multiple campaigns, most notably in 2016 with From Sydney With Love at Sydney Town Hall raising over $70,000 for the victims and families of the heartbreaking Orlando shootings and in 2012 with Floodlight raising over $20,000 for the victims of the devastating QLD floods.

During COVID-19, Catherine worked in association with Cobbstar Productions and GNWTV to launch The Reservoir Room, Sydney’s first virtual venue that produced a five week season of Friday Night Live (a brand new variety show directed by Ted Robinson and co-hosted by Alcorn and Rodger Corser) and a Saturday night cabaret and live music program. The Reservoir Room kept upwards of 45 industry professionals employed during a period in which the Australian Live Entertainment industry was decimated. Catherine is currently working on new projects and will be back on the live stage before we know it!
