Oxygen and ‘Glee‘ casting director Robert Ulrich will begin the casting search for ‘The Glee Project,’ a new Oxygen reality series, on Saturday, December 18 and Sunday, December 19, in Chicago.
The second round of the open casting call will be held in Dallas on Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9.
In ‘The Glee Project,’ set to premiere in June 2011, performers will compete for a multi-episode role on Season 3 of Fox’s ‘Glee.’ The series was born of a similar idea aborted by Fox, in which a nationwide summer 2010 was supposed to fill three roles for the current season.
Candidates must be at least 18 years old and be available to the production January through April 2011. Additional details – including a list of approved audition songs – can be found at TheGleeProject.oxygen.com.
