The Colby Olsen Foundation is proud to present our Tucson’s Got Talent Finale series. This event will be different as there will be a preliminary round, a semi-final round, and the finale! Share your talent for a chance to win a CASH PRIZE of up to $500 for each age group at the Tucson’s Got Talent finale!

As tradition, this is your chance to showcase your skills and take home some amazing prize money! All performers ages 10 and up are encouraged to attend and all talents are welcome (singing, lip-sync, dance, magicians, etc). Performers may audition as a group or as an individual. This is your chance showcase your talents, have fun AND help raise money for The Colby Olsen Foundation!

For each round, we will be breaking the competition down into two age groups. Our Youth Group will be ages 10-17, followed by our Adult Group 18+. If performing in a group, of mixed ages, we will base the category on a majority of the age of contestants. All contestants perform free of charge.

The Preliminary round will be held on Saturday, October 26th from 6pm-9pm; And, the semi-final round will be held on Sunday, February 9th from 6-9pm. Both rounds will be located at The Scoundrel and Scamp Theater located at the Historic Y. 738 NORTH 5TH AVENUE, STE 131, TUCSON, AZ, 85705.
