Betty Cairncross

IMG 2405Betty Cairncross is known to the Bankstown Theatre Company as Queen Bet. Shy to the stage, she earnt the title when she reluctantly appeared on stage during My Fair Lady as the the Queen of Transylvania. Her director described this performance as ' stunning '.

Her true talents are behind the scenes.  For over 30 years she has helped make beautiful costumes and helped with hairstyles and wigs.  If not behind the scenes coiffing hair she has been out the front selling cups of tea or ushering.

Diane Crease adds " All four of Betty and Vince's children have appeared in productions for Bankstown and it has become an important part of their lives."

"Both Betty and Vince are much loved
