News   Lend a Bang: Off-Broadway's STOMP Seeks 200 Extras for PSA Shoot
Off-Broadway's long-running percussion-based STOMP will shoot a public service announcement May 18 and are looking for a few people to help them bang it out.

The show — which plays at New York's Orpheum Theatre — are in need of 200 extras for shooting which takes place all over the five New York City boroughs this week. Those interested (who can also learn a short broom routine) and have about an hour to spare should email stompoutlitter@yahoo.com for details (Only the first 200 will be contacted.)  No pay is offered and you must be available May 18 at 4 PM.   

Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas created the wordless (and thus, universal) Stomp, the show about banging everything from Zippo lighters to brooms to plungers to hubcaps. It opened in New York City in 1994 and has played over 4,500 performances.

The show has spawned international tours and regional productions (having played to over 8.3 million people in 38 countries), an Academy Award-nominated short, an Emmy Award-winning HBO special, "Stomp Out Loud" and as well as an IMAX film called "Pulse."

Stomp also collaborated with Dolby Laboratories on new theatrical trailer which debuted in theatres last May. The 30-second live action 35 mm Dolby Digital Surround EXTM film trailer features Stomp's performances brandishing Dolby's multichannel audio technologies. Stomp creators Cresswell and McNicholas concocted the trailer used in cinemas as well as DVDs, broadcast and video gaming.

Tickets to Stomp at New York's Orpheum Theatre, 126 Second Avenue, are available through Ticketmaster at (212) 307-4100. For more information, visit www.stomponline.com.
