Originally from Philadelphia, East Coast credits include: Emcee in Cabaret, Lumiere in Beauty & The Beast, Chip in …Spelling Bee, Gregory Gardner in A Chorus Line, and The Nutcracker Ballet. Local credits include: Leaf in …Spelling Bee, Alvin in Band Geeks! [West Coast Premiere], The Rocky Horror Show, and Drew in Troll 2: The Musical.

Bets is grateful for the opportunity to return to the Armory after appearing as Dad & Jard in In The Basement and as Bex, Brad & Claudia in Best Available in JAW 2023 over the summer. They’d like to thank Brian, diet soda, naps, and their cat, Ostentacia Wallacé, for keeping them going. @cool__ghost
