Senior Idol

Commissioned and Produced by Junction Arts Festival Launceston

Join us for the world’s first Senior Idol!

A Junction-style version of the famous reality TV series, Senior Idol celebrates older people in a singing competition for those who can flash a Senior’s Card.

Open to all singing enthusiasts 60 years and over, Senior Idol is a chance to get on stage and show off your voice in front of a festival audience.

Under the musical direction and support of Amanda Hodder, participants can take advantage of vocal workshops before the performance.

The winner is chosen by an elite panel of local and national judges, including Reg Gorman, Australian TV, film and theatre veteran, and best remembered for his role Jack in The Sullivans. Reg will also perform at the Senior Idol Grand Final.

60 is the new 18.
