CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Blue Man Group is holding a series of open auditions this summer, hoping to round out its cast.

The theatrical spectacle featuring three tall, bald, blue actors began more than two decades ago. It now has productions in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and Orlando, Florida. Meanwhile, a tour is also gearing up.

All told, about 60 actors play Blue Men and producers are always looking for new performers.

This summer they hosted auditions in Chicago and more auditions begin today in Las Vegas.

At the Briar Street Theater in Chicago, 77 potential Blue Men spent time showcasing their acting abilities and drumming experience earlier this summer. Less than half made it to callbacks the next day.

Producers say they're looking for actors who have good listening skills and who can portray a character through drumming.

Once they're selected, it can take months for performers to learn the show's acting and drumming.
