WHAT: Oxygen's open casting call for the hit series "The Glee Project" in New York City on Nov. 12 and 13.

Please note: This casting call is part of the pre-production process for the show and not an official pick up announcement for season two of "The Glee Project."

WHO: 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 U.S. Candidates must also be available for production in or about January through April 2012 and be willing to travel as part of production.

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."

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.

For the first time ever, Oxygen is launching an interactive mobile hub that will provide fans with a chance to get tips, see photos from season one, take polls, read and share stories on "The Glee Project" Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/thegleeproject), and interact with Oxygen moderators through real-time Twitter updates from the casting call from the official @TheGleeProject account (http://www.twitter.com/thegleeproject).
