Dunedin Senior Talent Show Holding Open Auditions
Grab your guitar, dust off that old saxophone, start warming up your vocals and tapping your feet – it’s time for the annual Senior Talent Show in Dunedin!
Each year, the City of Dunedin Parks & Recreation Department hosts the “Senior Talent Show,” an eclectic combination of talent over the age of 50. In the past, acts have included spoon players, banjo players, ballroom dancers, comedians, vocalists and more.
If you have a talent that can amaze an audience and earn you the crown, check out the open auditions for the show on Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011 from 6 to 9pm at the Dunedin Community Center, 1920 Pinehurst Road. All types of talent are welcome — auditions are first-come, first-served and no appointments are necessary.
The top twelve acts will go on to perform in front of a live audience of over 600 on Friday, Nov. 18, and will be judged “American Idol” style, complete with local “celebrity” judges – Rick Chaboudy of the Suncoast Animal League, Katie Dolac from the Dunedin Patch, and featuring Guest Judge Dick Crippen, Senior Advisor with the Tampa Bay Rays and a former Tampa Bay sportscaster. The Master of Ceremonies will be Ann Kelly from the New Magic 94.9FM.
This year’s show is being sponsored by The Senior Connection and Ruth Eckerd Hall. Tickets are on sale now for only $5 at the Dunedin Community Center (1920 Pinehurst Road) and the Hale Senior Activity Center (330 Douglas Avenue).
