Talented women over 40 will show their stuff in the upcoming trial round of "Tomatoes Got Talent" on Saturday March 7, twelve of whom will move on to the exciting finals at The Triad Theatre, 158 West 72nd Street, on Monday April 6 at 7pm. Co-produced by Cheryl Benton and Randie Levine-Miller, who hosts the high-spirited juried contest, this year's "Tomatoes Got Talent" will feature a blue-ribbon jury consisting of theatre luminaries Tony winner Donna McKechnie, Tony nominee Lee Roy Reams and the Emmy-winning NY1 anchor and theater critic Roma Torre. The show's music director is Paul Chamlin.

Sponsored by the women's lifestyle media company, "Tomatoes Got Talent" is a showcase for extraordinary women who have made their marks and their livings outside of the entertainment world, but who consider the craft of singing and performing to be integral to their lives. Past participants have included lawyers, bankers, health care professionals, paralegals and administrators, massage therapists, teachers, and entrepreneurs. Since competing several aluma have gone on to do their own cabaret acts, and several have been nominated and won MAC Awards.

The reigning champion is 2019 winner Christina Connors. The 2018 winner was Sheree Sano.
