Catherine Alcorn is a multi award-winning artist, presenter, producer, Artistic Director and one of Australia’s most in-demand entertainers, renowned for her powerhouse vocals and razor sharp wit. 

Hailed as ‘a must see!’ (L.A. Times), ‘absolutely hilarious’ (Time Out) with ‘a voice to die for’ (STAGE NOISE) Catherine combines her wickedly inviting sense of humour and dynamic voice, exhilarating audiences wherever she goes.  

In 2018 Catherine made her triumphant USA and Sydney Opera House debut in her most famous role as The Divine Miss Bette, her critically acclaimed stage production channeling Bette Midler, winning her the Best Cabaret Production in the 2018 Broadway World Awards.

Catherine headlines some of the world’s most celebrated festivals including Sydney Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Festival of Voices and regularly hosts for international brands including TEDx, Apple, Mercedes Benz, Optus, Grant Burge and Special Olympics Australia.

Catherine’s theatre credits include her Sydney Theatre Award nominated cabaret Cathartic, the Australian premiere of off-Broadway cult hit 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche and 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 including the 2016 From Sydney With Love at Sydney Town Hall raising over $70,000 for the victims and families of the Orlando shootings, and in 2012 with Floodlight raising over $20,000 for the victims of the devastating QLD floods. 

In 2020, and in response to COVID-19, Catherine and a team of Sydney producers, launched The Reservoir Room, a virtual venue from Paddington Town Hall for a five week season, live streaming a brand new variety show Friday Night Live (directed by Ted Robinson and co-hosted with Rodger Corser) and Saturday evening cabaret and live music hours. This project kept over 45 of Sydney’s live entertainment industry workers employed.
