This unique production celebrates the zany and fun side of celebrity personalities through the use of comedic parody and vocal tributes to some of the world’s most legendary female superstars of our time. Bethany Owen continues to amaze audiences night after night with her incredible talent to mimic celebrity voices, as well as take on their character look, body language and facial expressions...All supported by 2000 pounds of combined stage wardrobe, wigs, props, lighting, visual special effects and musical production equipment to produce the full theatrical "ONE VOICE" show.

You’ll experience the vocal and visual replications of Cher, Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Liza Minnelli and Joan Rivers as well as super legends like Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland, and some of the most down home country legends classics like Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette, and current country divas Reba McEntire and Shania Twain, just to mention a few.

BETHANY OWEN-- actress/ comedienne/ impressionist/ singer/ writer/ dancer
Born in Wichita, Kansas, to Neal and Dolores Owen, Bethany's father was an aeronautical scientist and engineer, who began a series of work related moves that would take the family around the country from Seattle WA., to Smyrna Ga., Grand Prairie, Bedford, and Euless, TX. Bethany and her family moved so much they literally ended up owning their own moving van, but finally settled in Huntington Beach CA. when she was fourteen, where her mother still resides today.

In Seattle at the age of six, Bethany began her formal ballet training with Frances Medley. Frances remained a lifelong friend and mentor until her recent passing at the age of ninety-eight. Over the following years, Bethany not only continued to study ballet, but also tap, flamenco and jazz. By the time she was fourteen, she was a seasoned soloist dancer and at fifteen became a member of the Orange County Ballet Theatre under the direction of Michel Panaieff. After a few years of performing classic ballets with the Russian trained masters at the ballet company, Bethany decided to try her hand as a choreographer and stage singer and joined a Los Angeles Top 40 show band.

Bethany performed with her band from LA and worked showrooms in Las Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe for the next 3 ½ years. It was during this time that Bethany performed her very first impression...that of Edith Bunker singing “Those Were The Days” for a TV medley routine. Ironically, what neither the band nor Bethany realized was that her Edith impression would be an instant hit with audiences and this opened up a whole new career path for her as a voice impressionist.

Much to the dismay of the band's members, Bethany's spotlight grew as she became the lead singer and performed songs as: Carol Channing, Barbra Streisand, Mary Hartman, Helen Reddy, Charo, Julie Andrews, Dolly Parton, Carmen Miranda and Cher...and the crowds always wanted more.

Bethany eventually parted from the band and transformed her singing act into a fresh and creatively written standup comedy routine that included impressions and singing parodies of famous celebrities, and the rest, as they say," is history".

Bethany has since gone on to perform on stage, television and film all around the world... An abbreviated list of her credits include: PACAF Air Force Tour, Aruba Americana Casino, 40 US States, Las Vegas, Europe, the Caribbean, The Sid and Marty Krofft Puppets, Brian DiPalma's "Body Double”, Larry King Live, The Temptations, Joe Piscopo, Mickey Rooney, John Byner, The Gong Show, MTV, FOX, CBS, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Harrah's, The Sands Casino, Maxim Casino, Caesars Palace, Stardust Casino, Cruise Ships, Cartoon voice-overs for The Adventures of Scooter McDoogal, National Red Cross, Ford Motor Company, The Cinegrille--Hollywood, CA., OC Pavilion, Taj Palace Resort, New Delhi India.
