City of Casey Mayor Cr Sam Aziz said this was just a taste of what’s to come for the precinct.

“With such a diverse mix of facilities, Bunjil Place will offer unprecedented entertainment options for the region from professional shows and live gigs in the Theatre and Studio, to vibrant outdoor events in the Community Plaza and interactive exhibitions in the Gallery,” Cr Aziz said.

“The first tickets going on sale marks a momentous occasion as we prepare to usher in a new era entertainment and bring city-style experiences to the south-east.”

Comedian Sammy J said he was excited to be one of the first comedians to perform at Bunjil Place.

I look forward to sharing a great night with the locals. I’m also honoured that they created an entire new entertainment space just for my performance. As I said to the Mayor, you can’t put a price on laughter,” he said.
