Glee Project holds open casting calls
Oxygen’s open casting call for the hit series “The Glee Project” will hit Nashville from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Nashville Convention Center’s west exhibit hall on the first and second floors. This casting call is part of the pre-production process for the show and not an official pick up announcement for the second season of “The Glee Project.”
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 http://thegleeproject.oxygen.com to pre-register and find additional information on the open casting calls and eligibility requirements. The convention center is located at 601 Commerce Street in Nashville. Prospective entrants will be directed upon arrival.
Nov. 13 marks the opening of the “Tradition – Tennessee Lives and Legacies” exhibit. It is a multi-faceted project that highlights 25 selected folk art subjects from across Tennessee. The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 30.
There will be a reception on Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m.
The individuals highlighted in this project include diverse artists such as Charlie Acuff, who stayed in his home area and kept traditional music alive; old-time musician Roy Harper in his bright red suit and his additional talent as a painter of railroad scenes; Mary Prater’s joy of life woven in her baskets and infectious smile; buck dancer Thomas Maupin skipping across a shallow stream at dusk; the classic tradition of Bob Kounlavong’s Laotian musician and dancers; Minnise Bell and her Choctaw sisters preparing food over an open fire; Eda Rodriguez preparing Salvadorian food; Billy Tripp’s “Mind Field,” a tribute to his Methodist parents and many more unique subjects.
