Se­niors miss tal­ent show

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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: a.lecomte@cairns.qld.gov.au
