Got talent? ‘Golden Idol’ seeks contestants
By Elizabeth Marie Himchak
Do you have a talent well-suited for the stage and are age 55-plus? If so, the Golden Idol contest organizers want you.
The inaugural contest for the seniors living in Rancho Bernardo and the surrounding communities is a new addition to the pre-Spirit of the Fourth festivities. It will be 4-7 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at the Ed Brown Senior Center, 18402 W. Bernardo Drive in Rancho Bernardo Community Park.
Marla Cruz, one of the Golden Idol organizers, said there is no entry fee and each act is limited to five minutes.
“It can be any talent, such as singing, dancing or comedy,” Cruz said. “We have a piano and an amp and microphone for the stereo system.”
She said contestants — who must be amateurs — will have to bring their music if needed. While they must abide by the 55 and over age limit, if using an accompanist who is not part of the act, that individual can be of any age. If singers use a recorded accompaniment on CD, the CD cannot have any vocals.
The contest is limited to the first 20 entrants who submit their application by June 23. There is no entry fee. For details, call Cruz at the Brown center, 858-487-9324.
Cash prizes will be awarded to those in first, second and third place. The three finalists will also be invited to perform their talent at the community fair in Webb Park on July 4.
The talent contest is sponsored by Alta Golden and presented by the Spirit of the Fourth, Inc. and the Ed Brown Senior Center, Cruz said.
