September 27, 2011 02:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Oxygen’s The Glee Project proved to be a hit in the first season, and now the network has announced they are casting for the next season. Interested? Read on to find out how you can apply!

If you are interested in being a part of the next season of The Glee Project on Oxygen, here are all the details from the network’s official press release yesterday:

Oxygen will begin its nationwide casting search for the next season of the “The Glee Project,” kicking things off today with an online search. This announcement is not an official second season renewal. Information can be obtained at The Glee Project, where already over 87,000 fans and hopefuls have signed up to learn more about the casting process. Additionally, beginning in November, Oxygen will launch a multiple city open casting call tour including New York, Chicago and Nashville. This announcement comes on the heels of a highly successful first season of “The Glee Project” which became a critically acclaimed ratings hit for the network. In season one, 12 powerful contenders were chosen from over 40,000 young men and women to compete for a seven-episode guest starring role on “Glee.”

For the next season of “The Glee Project,” Casting Director Robert Ulrich and his team are seeking singularly talented young men and women with strong vocal, acting and dancing abilities with big, oversized 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 for production in or about January through April 2012 and be willing to travel as part of production.

Those hoping to bring their own unique style to “Glee” should visit The Glee Project to learn how to upload their videos and find additional information on the open casting calls and eligibility requirements. Performers can choose from a wide variety of songs to audition with including “Ordinary People” by John Legend, “The Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga, “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, “Drops of Jupiter” by Train, “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers, “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood, “This Kiss” by Faith Hill and “Out Here on My Own” by Irene Cara from the movie “Fame.”
