Seniors miss talent show
CAIRNS Regional Council’s Seniors Got Talent competition was cancelled in Port Douglas yesterday after no one registered.
Tap-dancing extraordinaire Barbara English was ready to tap her way to victory only to find out the heat was cancelled.
“I am disappointed, I will see if I can go to Mossman but I am supposed to work,” Barbara said.
“I have been tap-dancing for 20 years, quite a lot of us girls took a tap dancing class in a little historic hall in Port Douglas and we tapped danced at the Reef and Rainforest festival on the back of a truck in 1989.”
Barbara’s tap dancing will compete against a guitar-playing singer, a piano accordionist and a country singer.
Council’s acting senior events officer Ann Le Comte is thrilled Mossman has supported Seniors Got Talent and said it is not too late to register.
“Mossman is going to shine with talent and by next Tuesday hopefully more people will attend,” Le Comte said.
“It is going to bring out the most talented seniors in North Queensland and we might have some superstars in our midst, but most importantly we want them to have fun.”
And you can have any sort of talent to enter - yesterday a bush poet won in Edmonton and in another heat a singer won for getting the crowd singing along with him.
It doesn’t matter if you are too shy to perform, come along anyway and support the seniors anyway.
To register for the Seniors Got Talent at the Mossman Shire Hall next Tuesday at 10 am contact Ann Le Comte on (07) 4044 3020 or email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
