Blue Man Group is holding its first open casting call in Nashville on Thursday, June 12. The auditions will be held downtown at The Arts Company. The website is www.bluemancasting.com
Blue Men hail from a fascinating mix of disciplines: classically-trained actors, musical comedy performers, rock musicians, and dancers, among others. Though the casting department has seen thousands of talented people, only approximately 70 people have been discovered with the unique combination of talents (drumming and acting skills) and physical stamina (along with the appropriate height requirements) to embody the Blue Man.
Blue man searches for potential performers to join their existing casts in nine theatrical productions around the world (New York, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando, Berlin, Oberhausen, Stuttgart, and Tokyo) and/or the international rock concert arena experience, Blue Man’s MegaStar World Tour (which visited Nashville twice in the recent past).
