BIO


Beth was born and raised in San Luis Obispo, CA. At the age of five she started dancing, then at nine started doing musical theatre. Enamored with the stage, she started doing community theatre and soon moved onto professional theatre. She decided to continue her education at Southern Methodist University, where she received her BFA in Theatre. Upon graduating, Beth moved to LA and started working consistently within the LA musical theatre world and started writing music. She took a few years to perform Rizzo in the European Tour of GREASE. Back in LA, her love for music, circuitously and luckily led her to become a back-up singer for the Brian Setzer Orchestra. She toured all over the US and Japan with the big band, and is featured on DIG THAT CRAZY SANTA CLAUS CD and the CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA DVD. She has also received a Billboard award for her own music. In 2005, she swapped coasts to make her Broadway debut as Rhonda in GOOD VIBRATIONS. She went on to be in the original jump roping cast of LEGALLY BLONDE, the first national tour of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS and starred in the national Tour of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN playing the Madeline Kahn role. She recently guest starred on HART OF DIXIE. She has guest starred on BURN NOTICE, co-starred in THE BRIDGE and BUNHEADS. She has been on HOPE AND FAITH, ALL MY CHILDREN and many appearances on CONAN O'BRIEN.

Her most recent love is TOTSY, a burlesque pop band that she created with guitarist Brett Boyett. Please check out the Totsy tab to learn more about the band and their world domination.
