Beth was featured in the Bravo documentaries Ballet Girls, Ballet High and 2014's live performance Cineplex movie of Moulin Rouge® – The Ballet.
“Green wasn’t actually performing the night I went, that job went to Elizabeth Lamont, a tiny but extremely poised Juliet. For me, the highlight was watching [her] dance on her tiptoes backwards across the stage in rapid time. Her technique was near perfect and she made it seem effortless.” Dan McPeake, Vancouver Observer, February 8, 2014
