Mayor's Annual Variety Performance to showcase South West talent

Monday, 1 July 2019 

A major concert to showcase and promote some of the region's best entertainers, sponsored by City of Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan and Mayoress Robyn Morris, will once again be held at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre (BREC). 

The Mayor's Annual Variety Performance aims to highlight the rich and diverse array of talent in Bunbury and the South West and to provide a platform for local musical and performing groups to promote their productions to the community. 

The Variety Performance – to be held at BREC on August 16, will also serve as a fundraiser – with all proceeds from ticket sales donated to the performing artists and groups. 

This extraordinary evening of entertainment will feature the South West Opera Company and Philharmonic South West, the WA Opera Company’s Rob Littlewood, Phantom of the Opera leads Nerida Mangano and Ben Talbot, Triple J star Grace Armstrong, the Studio of Classical and Contemporary Dance, Jazz Attack, Nicole Kosetsky, Viva Aerial Dance, Top Jazz Ballet, Wizards of Oz and Tony Bandera, Mitch James, The Anchormen, the SWOClets, Bunbury Young Voices and Contempo. 

The evening will culminate in a spectacular finale with the orchestra, choirs and rock band coming together to perform a special item prepared especially for the Mayor’s Annual Variety Performance. 

"We have a fantastic array of talent in Bunbury and the South West and the productions our very own companies put on year after year are first class," Mayor Brennan said. 

"A Variety Performance offers everyone in the community a fantastic taster of what these companies can do and a glimpse of coming productions. 

"These performing groups are all run by dedicated volunteers who each year put on sensational productions with a huge amount of passion, but limited budgets. 

"This is an opportunity for people to come along and experience what our very own South West performers have to offer and at the same time support local talent." 

Tickets are just $30 for adults, $23 for seniors and $15 for children and are on sale now at BREC or by phoning the Box Office on 1300 661 272 or online here
