Why should young people have all the fun? The producers of the 50+ PrimeTime Living Expo are auditioning talented Midwesterners age 50 and up.
Have you ever watched America’s Got Talent and thought, “I can do that”? If you can sing, dance, play an instrument or wow an audience with your variety act – and you’ve celebrated at least 50 birthdays — here’s your chance. The producers of the 50+ PrimeTime Living Expo are holding auditions for the area’s best senior talent contest.
After two years of producing the 50+ Strut Your Stuff talent contest, the producers predict that the talent this year will be incredible. But more than anything, it’s an opportunity for many people to fulfill a lifelong dream of being on stage.
“I can’t wait to see this year’s talented contestants,” says Robin Kocina, president, Mid-America Events & Expos. “The 50+ Strut Your Stuff talent contest gives us an opportunity to support our talented friends and neighbors so that they may experience what it’s like to entertain and bring joy to others.”
The contest is open to all Minnesota and Wisconsin residents who reached their 50th birthday by April 8, 2012. To make it an even playing field, only amateurs may enter. Finalists will perform during the fall 50+ PrimeTime Living Expo, Sept. 22-23 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Grandstand Building. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
Entry forms and complete information are available at www.101expos.com/faPrimeTime/ or by calling 612-798-7237. Entry forms are due by Aug. 24. There is a $25 entry fee per person.
