The highly anticipated Casey’s Got Talent returned with a bang this year when a suite of performers from across Casey lit up the stage at the end of April.

Some of Casey’s best local performers wowed audiences on Friday 20 April, but it came down to six of the best who managed to take home a trophy.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett thanked the performers for providing such an entertaining show and for the commitment they dedicate towards their acts. 

“I am overwhelmed by the variety of performances and in awe of your talent,” he said.

“Casey’s Got Talent is just one-way Council showcases the performing arts and it was fantastic to give these performers the chance to demonstrate their talents in our wonderful Studio at Bunjil Place.  

“I think the calibre of the talent this year is reflective of the huge following we have for the arts in Casey, and Council is proud to support the growth of this sector, as well as our homegrown talent.”

The overall winners on the night included:

  • Dance – Holly Neal
  • Vocalist – Matt Prins
  • People’s Choice Award – Elina Pinto
  • 14 and under– Charley Cestnik
  • 15 – 20 years -Tage Hosking Gregory
