Come hang out on the set of “Zookeeper” and support the Zoo!

We’re auctioning off three exclusive walk-on roles – one each for October 12, 13 and 14, 2009. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be an extra in one of the most highly-anticipated films of next year! And the best part – every penny from the winning bids will go to support the initiatives of Zoo New England, the non-profit organization that manages Franklin Park Zoo in Boston and Stone Zoo in Stoneham, Mass.

These are non-speaking roles for adults. Filming will be on Monday, October 12, Tuesday, October 13 and Wednesday, October 14 at locations in the Boston area. Winners should expect to stay for 10-12 hours (exact times tbd). Winners will get to dine in the cast and crew’s exclusive catering area.

Franklin Park Zoo was the primary film location for “Zookeeper,” starring Kevin James. While filming at the Zoo is finished, the crew continues to shoot at locations in the Boston area.
