In-person tryouts are happening starting July 20 for the 4th Annual Morning Pointe Foundation Seniors Got Talent show in Lexington.

The show will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Lexington Opera House.

The Foundation puts on the show in conjunction with Morning Pointe Senior Living. However, auditions are open to any senior 62+, not just Morning Pointe residents. Ten seniors or senior groups will be selected from the auditions. Acts have included singers, musicians, dancers, poets, comedians and more. The grand prize winner will receive $500. Prizes will also be given to second- and third-place winners, as well as a People’s Choice winner.

All proceeds will go to the Morning Pointe Foundation, 501(c)3 nonprofit public service organization that provides caregiver support programs, sponsors educational awareness events, and funds clinical scholarships throughout the Southeast.

In-person auditions will take place July 20-28 at local Morning Pointe Senior Living campuses, allowing residents to enjoy live entertainment:

Interested seniors can submit audition videos online at morningpointefoundation.com/registerlexington/ through the end of the month. Acts showcasing talents of all kinds are welcome but should not exceed three minutes in length.

So far, acts signed up to try out include dancers, a dulcimer player, a pianist, a band and more.

“If you are age 62 years young or up and have a performing talent of any kind, don’t miss this opportunity to perform at the famous Lexington Opera House,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation executive director. “We’ve heard from so many of our contestants through the years that this show is so much fun to be part of. It’s truly a special night, and each year, both contestants and audience members leave smiling and eager for the next year’s show.”

Dillon Gaudet, morning meteorologist at ABC36, will serve as the master of ceremonies for the second year.

Tickets for the Morning Pointe Foundation Seniors Got Talent show are $10 and will go on sale in August.

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by Tennessee-based senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. Morning Pointe also sponsors similar Seniors Got Talent competitions in Tennessee in Chattanooga, Franklin and Knoxville.

Founded in 1997 by Vital and Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 37 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states. These include nine campuses in the greater Lexington area.
