Mayor's Annual Variety Performance set to entertain in July

A major concert to showcase and promote some of the region's entertainers has been initiated by City of Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan and Mayoress Robyn Morris.  

The Mayor's Annual Variety Performance has aimed to provide a platform for local musical and performing groups to promote their productions to the community. 

The show, to be held at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on July 20, will also serve as a fundraiser, with all proceeds from ticket sales donated to the performing artists and groups. 

The evening of entertainment will feature music from The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables by the South West Opera Company.

The Philharmonic South West will perform classic pieces from its extensive repertoire, and accompany the WA Opera Company's Rob Littlewood, the Studio of Classical and Contemporary Dance, Nerida Mangano and the South West Opera Company. 

The Bunbury City Band, Naked Villainy Theatre, Top Jazz Ballet and dancer Jessica Newell will also perform pieces. 

"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," Mr 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 $20 for adults and $15 for children and are on sale now at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre or by phoning the Box Office on 1300 661 272.
