The red carpet will be rolled out at the Logan Entertainment Centre next month as the iconic community venue celebrates its 21st birthday.

A gala evening of entertainment will headline the birthday celebrations on Saturday July 22.

The program includes the hit show Sisters Doing It For Themselves featuring the Sister Act soundtracks live on stage.

A post-show cocktail party, with live music and a dessert bar, will carry celebrations into the evening. Tickets are $79.

The milestone celebrations begin on Tuesday, July 4 with two performances of the children’s play Are We There Yet? at 12pm and 2:30pm.

Tickets are $15 and include a sausage sizzle picnic on the lawn between shows.

Mayor Darren Power said the Logan Entertainment Centre had become one of the city’s most popular pieces of community infrastructure.

“I remember that when the Entertainment Centre was built in 2002, it was a big step forward for the city,” Cr Power said.

“It made arts and entertainment accessible in Logan. Residents no longer needed to go into Brisbane to see some of the big touring shows.

“Since then, the LEC has been very well supported and utilised, not just for entertainment but for important events like our Volunteer Awards, Sports Awards, citizenship ceremonies and local school events.”

Lifestyle Chair Councillor Tony Hall is looking forward to celebrating the historic LEC milestone.

“The LEC has an impressive history of delivering fantastic performances and community events,” Cr Hall said.

“It will be great for the city to come together in July to celebrate an iconic Logan venue in typical Entertainment Centre fashion – with a great show and lots of fun.”

Division 2 Councillor Teresa Lane encourages residents from across the city to get involved in the celebrations.

“It’s a brilliant opportunity to celebrate a venue that has brought so much joy and laughter to the entire community. The program has something for everyone,” Cr Lane said.
