IF you're looking for an early opportunity to cheer an NHL team in Manitoba before an official NHL game gets played, Don Cherry wants you.
The producers of the film The Don Cherry Story: Keep Your Head Up Kid - The Sequel are looking for volunteer extras to fill seats when the TV miniseries shoots in Winnipeg at the MTS Centre on Thursday, June 2, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and in Portage la Prairie at the PCU Centre on Friday, June 10, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The job does not pay, but the first 200 registered volunteers to arrive at the arena will receive an exclusive commemorative Don Cherry T-shirt, and every registered volunteer who attends the movie shoot will be entered into a grand prize draw.
Because the scenes in the movie are set in the fall and winter, volunteers are asked to dress in seasonally appropriate clothes, and period clothes whenever possible. The game at the MTS Centre is set in 1979 and the game at the PCU Centre is set in 1969. A prize will be awarded for the best outfit on both nights.
