The 5th Annual Chattanooga Seniors Got Talent variety show produced by the Morning Pointe Foundation is introducing some big changes this year, including a lowered age of competition and additional prize money.

The 2024 Chattanooga show, which the Foundation puts on in conjunction with Morning Pointe Senior Living, will take place on July 29 at 7 p.m.

Ten to 12 local senior acts will compete as the event returns to last year’s venue, the Silverdale Center Creekside Theatre. The theater is part of the Silverdale Baptist Academy campus located at 7236 Bonny Oaks Drive in Chattanooga.

This year, the Foundation has lowered the minimum age of contestants from 62 to 60, opening the doors to a wider variety of talent in the greater Chattanooga community. Seniors Got Talent is open to any talented seniors (not just Morning Pointe campus residents). Acts have included singers, musicians, dancers, poets, comedians and more.

More changes for this year’s Seniors Got Talent show include an increase in prize winnings. The grand-prize winner will receive $1,000, with $500 going to the second-place winner and $250 awarded to the third-place winner.

Online auditions are open now at morningpointefoundation.com/events/seniors-got-talent/. In-person auditions will take place June 18-27 at local Morning Pointe Senior Living campuses. Tickets will be $10 and will go on sale in July.

The purpose of Seniors Got Talent is twofold: to give local seniors a place to shine, and to raise funds for the Morning Pointe Foundation through sponsorships and ticket sales.

“Our Chattanooga show continues to see so much growth year after year,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation executive director. “In 2023, we had some great acts and a fabulous turnout of more than 500 people. I guarantee you that everyone who came to the show left entertained and inspired. Not only that, but the monies raised went on to impact local students and give them a chance to achieve their own dreams. We can’t wait to see what 2024 has in store!”

The Morning Pointe Foundation hosts four Seniors Got Talent shows each year. Besides Chattanooga, shows are held in Franklin and Knoxville, Tennessee, as well as Lexington, Kentucky.

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The nonprofit was created in 2014 and has bestowed 111 scholarships in the Southeast to date.

Founded in 1997 by Vital and Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 38 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities. These span five southeastern states: Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and Indiana.
