You know it; we all know it – Seniors Got Talent! Senior Expo 2011 is going to tap that talent. Auditions for Seniors Got Talent will be held at Ashland High School, July 27, 3 to 6 p.m. in the auditorium. Judges will pick 10 people to advance to the Senior Expo Seniors Got Talent Show, August 24, beginning at 1 p.m.
JD Bass Entertainment, the official DJ service of Heartland Communications area radio stations, will oversee both the auditions and the talent show.
Ten talents will be chosen during the auditions and will advance to the Senior Got Talent Show, held during Senior Expo, August 24. If you are 55 and beyond, and would like to share your talent of singing, dancing, playing a musical instrument, or standing up and making people laugh, this event is for you. Plus 1st place will win $100; 2nd, $75; and 3rd place, $50.
“Being involved with the radio station and promotions like karaoke contests and Battle of the Bands, we see how much talent is in our area. Why not let the senior citizens get involved? I would venture to say, there are a lot of talented seniors citizens out there. We hope you will participate in the competition,“ said Scott Jaeger, General Manager of Heartland Communications.
The Senior Expo Social will begin at noon, August 24. John Doane will perform in the first hour, with his mellow voice, reminiscent of Old Blue Eyes. At 1 p.m. the Seniors Got Talent show will begin. The top three winners will receive a cash prize.
Sign up now for the auditions by calling Heartland Communications, (715) 682-2727.
