NEW ORLEANS, LA — Producers of the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Half Time Show are offering area residents an opportunity to participate in Super Bowl XLVII which will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday, February 3, 2013.
Five hundred local men and women are needed to be part of the stage crew that will help run the stage onto the field and perform other duties during the halftime show featuring Beyonce.
No prior experience is required, but volunteers must attend all posted rehearsals and be over the age of 18. Interested volunteers may log on to www.superbowlproductions.com  for more information and to register and view the rehearsal schedule.
Volunteers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the show which will be televised live on CBS. Watched by more than 112.5 million viewers in the U.S. last year, the Super Bowl is annually the nation’s most-watched TV program. The game and halftime show will be broadcast worldwide.
Volunteers will not receive tickets to the game, but will be an integral part of the show. They also will remain in a database for the opportunity to volunteer at future NFL events across the country.
