The production company working on a Christmas movie in Gulfport is looking for extras for filming Saturday in Jones Park.
The city put out a casting call Monday on its Facebook page.
The production company is trying to create a “festive atmosphere as a back drop for some very important scenes,” the post says.
The subject line should say, “Volunteer extras.”
It’s going to be a long night, so the city recommends that those selected bring blankets, chairs, ice chests and snacks.
The Christmas lights are a main attraction, so filming will be at night, with volunteers expected “on set” (in Jones Park) from around 5 p.m. Saturday until 4 a.m. Sunday.
“We need everyone!” the city’s post says. “Young and old, couples, singles, anyone who wants to be an extra in a film.”
Apparently, the metal-framed Christmas trees with LED lights will be dancing to holiday music Saturday night. The city says Santa might even show up.
Either way, it sounds like a great chance to enjoy the light show without needing a coat!
