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.

"The Glee Project" is a groundbreaking, competition series from Ryan Murphy, the co-creator and Emmy winning executive producer of "Glee." The show finds and trains a group of extraordinarily talented performers, who compete against one another to win a guest starring role on "Glee." The series uncovers a unique group of artists from both professional and amateur backgrounds, proving every underdog has a fighting chance at stardom.
