SOME of the region’s older stars are warming up their vocal chords, polishing their tap shoes and putting finishing touches to routines for the Seniors Star Quest next month.
To be held at Bray Raceway on October 10, Seniors Star Quest is aimed at the older generation with certain skills, whether they be singers, dancers, musicians or random specialty acts, who may have missed their calling.
The Seniors Star Quest is the highlight of this year’s Ballarat Senior Citizens Week activities and event organiser Garry West is encouraging anyone over the age of 55 to get involved.
“Seniors of all cultural ability and background should have a go ... try something they might have always wanted to do but haven’t achieved,” Mr West said.
He stressed the Seniors Star Quest was not a talent quest, but a celebration of individuals who wanted to express to the community what they could do.
All acts will have the opportunity to showcase their talent, with up to 30 acts being selected to perform on the big stage. The top performers will battle it out for cash and prizes totalling $5000.
The event is presented by the Ballarat and District Trotting Club in association with UFS Dispensaries, 3BA, Regent Cinema, Novetel Forest Resort and Country Club Villages.
