Blue Man Group, the international entertainment phenomenon, is holding a national open call for talented performers to portray Blue Men in its Orlando, Las Vegas, Boston and Chicago productions.
Open call auditions will be held in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Blue Man Group Theater inside Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.
Best known for multimedia performances that feature three bald and blue characters, Blue Man Group is theater, ritual, comedy, rock music and dance party all rolled into one. The character has strong roots in the downtown New York performance art scene as well as significant nods to vaudeville and Jacques Lecoq’s principles of playfulness, togetherness and openness.
Both male and female performers are encouraged to audition for Blue Man Group. Some of the basic criteria for Blue Man auditioners include:
- Strong candidates frequently have backgrounds in physical theater and improvisation. They are compelling and genuine nonverbal storytellers. They must thrive in a constantly evolving team environment on and off stage.
- Drumming skills / musicianship are an advantage but a good sense of rhythm is necessary.
- Seeking performers between 5’10” – 6’2″ with an athletic build.
- Must be willing to relocate. All training takes place in New York City.
