In its first season, the hit FOX TV show, “Glee” has consistently pulled in millions of viewers, week after week, proving that musicals are definitely back in style. Combined with its impressive first-time Golden Globe for Best Television Series at this year’s Golden Globes, “Glee” has proven to be both a commercial and critical success. Created in part by Newton, MA native Brad Falchuk, the show features a combination of show tunes and pop favorites, sung by the musically talented main cast, and a host of talented extras that help deliver chipper production numbers, set amidst the backdrop of your average American high school.
While the show is currently on a 4 month hiatus, it will be returning on April 13, with 9 brand new episodes until the season finale. The producers are also on a nation-wide hunt for additional talent. On Friday, April 16, at 10AM at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, producers will be holding a casting call for background talent for the second season of “Glee”. If you are between the ages of 16 and 26, and know how to hit all the right notes, go here to fill out a registration form. One hundred and fifty people will be randomly selected to sing at the Fox Theater at Foxwoods, and one lucky winner will get a $200 gift card to the casino, plus their video performance seen by a Glee Casting Producer. Those entrants not selected to perform are still encouraged to attend to watch the event.
