Douglas Harms competes in the regional Senior Star competition at the Clarke Theatre on June 13. The event was hosted by Carrington House.

Randle named Senior Star

Regional competition was held last month at the Clarke Theatre

Mission’s Barrie Randle is this year’s Senior Star.

Randle picked up the first place prize in the Chartwell Retirement Residences regional competition at the Clarke Theatre on June 13, hosted by Carrington House.

Randle along with second place winner, Bill Lewis from Maple Ridge, have a chance to compete in the national finals in Toronto this November.

At the regionals, contestants have five minutes to sing, play an instrument, or do both to impress a panel of three judges as their performance is video-taped. The video of the top two performers will be forwarded to judges who will select eight to compete at the nationals.

The competition, now in its seventh year, is open to any who is at least 65 years old and a Canadian resident.

“Chartwell’s Senior Star has grown to become the largest celebration of senior talent in Canada,” said Brent Binions, president and CEO of Chartwell Retirement Residences. “We are proud to support the incredible talent of today’s seniors and continue to be amazed and entertained year after year by the caliber of performers who participate.”
