Think you have what it takes to compete with the kids of McKinley High? "The Glee Project" is giving you a chance to prove you've got the pipes.
Beginning in December, the Oxygen network reality competition - which rewards one lucky winner with a recurring role on "Glee" – is holding casting calls for fresh new faces. The New York Times reports that auditions will be held in Chicago on December 18 and 19 and in Dallas on January 8 and 9.
According to the show's press release, "The Glee Project" is seeking "talented young men and women with strong vocal, acting, dancing abilities, and big personalities!”
Contestants must be eligible to work in the U.S. between January and April and cannot be a candidate for public office. More importantly, they must be over 18 and be able to play a teenager convincingly. And, of course, put up with Coach Sue's insults.
"The Glee Project" is set to air in June.
