With puck fever running high after this week's NHL-return announcement, the producers of Keep Your Head Up, Kid: The Don Cherry Story - The Sequel should have no problem finding a cheering crowd of extras in the mood for some old-time hockey fun.
The CBC mini-series is shooting 1970s-era game sequences today, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., at MTS Centre, and an enthusiastic hockey-arena crowd is needed to lend an air of authenticity to the action. The first 200 registered volunteers will receive a commemorative Don Cherry T-shirt, and everyone who signs on as an extra will be eligible for a grand-prize draw. There will be contests and giveaways throughout the day.
Interested extras-in-waiting can register online at www.formstack.com/landing/1189-1081387.
The Don Cherry sequel will also be shooting game sequences at Portage la Prairie's PCU Centre on Friday, June 10 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and is hoping to draw a similarly enthusiastic crowd there.
