Oxygen begins casting “The Glee Project”

NEW YORK – November 16, 2010 – Oxygen Media and Casting Duo, in association with Robert Ulrich, casting director of “Glee,” will begin the casting search for “The Glee Project” with open calls in Chicago on Saturday, December 18 and Sunday, December 19 and in Dallas on Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9.  Aside from these open calls, the team will also be reaching out to the next wave of professional performers through official industry channels in order to ensure everyone is included in this opportunity.  “The Glee Project,” where performers will compete for a multi-episode guest-starring role on season three of hit series “Glee,” will premiere on Oxygen in June 2011.

Oxygen is looking for talented young men and women with strong vocal, acting, dancing abilities and big personalities!  Musical theater experience is a plus, but not required.  Candidates must be at least 18 years of age (but able to convincingly portray the role of a teenager) and be legally eligible to work in the United States.  Candidates must also be available to the production in or about January through April 2011 and be willing to travel as part of production.   

Additional information about the casting calls, prizing, eligibility as well as a list of approved audition songs can be found athttp://thegleeproject.oxygen.com.  In addition, the website will have photos of the “Glee” cast, “Glee” trivia, fan blogs and message boards.

All of the 34,000 applications submitted through the earlier MySpace/”Glee” auditions have now been processed and the shortlisted applicants will be contacted by Friday, November 19.  Applicants who are not shortlisted may still choose to attend an open call.  Please go to http://thegleeproject.oxygen.com for more information and to pre-register for the casting call you plan to attend.


  1. Channel Guide has terrible delivery issues. For a while, I was getting it on time. But once I renewed (with a too-good-to-be-true offer of two free ones), I no longer receive it until I call. By then, about a week has elapsed into the new month, and I’ve missed a number of good things. It defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?

    • Hello everyone,
      Some of you have expressed frustration over Channel Guide Magazine’s
      delivery issues. I want you to know that our team realizes not
      delivering our magazine in a timely fashion is unacceptable and we are
      taking additional measures in regards to expediting delivery by
      working with USPS and adjusting our print dates. With the holidays and
      increased mail volumes at USPS we normally experience slower than
      usual deliveries but we expect to see overall significant improvements effective with the January Issue.

      Thank you for voicing your concerns and your loyalty to our magazine.
      We are grateful for your continued business and are committed to
      providing you with the best possible service.

      Blanca Guzman
      Circulation Director
