From time to time, Senior Planet receives requests from casting agencies, research groups and other looking for help in finding seniors to participate in paid or unpaid projects of various kinds. In our occasional Bulletin Board feature, we pass along any that look worth following up. (We have been in contact with each company that contacts us, but we haven’t fully vetted these opportunities; click on the links at the end of each entry to draw your own conclusions.)
Senior Planet’s got talent.
Can you juggle? Sing? Make people laugh? Do you like to perform at parties or open mics? If you’re an outgoing personality with a talent of any kind and looking for your 15 minutes of fame, this could be your shot at the Big Time.
NBC’s America’s Got Talent is casting for its next season and is looking for people of all ages. Singing, dancing, ventriloquism, stand-up comedy—any type of talent qualifies; no acting or professional experience is required.
How it works
To get an audition, email the casting producer Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and location, and attach or link to videos of you performing. The casting crew will review submissions and contact selected candidates to discuss the next step. Video is required to apply.
The first round of next season’s America’s Got Talent is in Los Angeles, and taping begins in March. The show will cover travel and accommodations for anyone in the show’s final selection. No one is paid—but you’d be competing for a grand prize of a million dollars.
Please direct any inquiries, follow-up or requests for status reports directly to Justincasting@gmail.com; Senior Planet has no influence, relationship or additional information about this opportunity. Good luck!
