Women Over 40 Take Their Turn and Sing Out in Third Annual ‘Tomatoes Got Talent’

These finalists include: Marcie Chasen, a market researcher; Jane Deeken, a personal assistant; Beth Goehring, a publishing executive; Susan Mack, a former money manager; Mary Malloy, a newspaper editor; Jo Marchese, a retired flight attendant; Jeanne Marino, a piano teacher; Ellen Naomi, an abstract artist; Patrice Richardson, a boutique owner; Mary Roesler, a legal secretary; Michele Sivori, a computer professional; and Kathleen Waters, also a legal secretary. While their careers are diverse, most of the women share a lifelong love of performing. Some are returning to it after raising families. Some are taking the leap for the first time.

You can watch excerpts of their fabulous (and in many cases funny) auditions here.

The grand prize-winner will receive $3,500 in prizes and gifts, as well as an opportunity to perform in an upcoming benefit concert. Three runners-up will also be honored. But, it sounds like they will all be winners — and so will the audience.

What would Mama Rose say about all this? That’s easy. “Sing out, Louise!”
