Planning for the arrival of the Radio–Canada TV crew to shoot La Petite Séduction in Hudson are Kel Deegan, Ophélie Simoncelli, Nicolas Pedneault, Miriam Bailey, and Céline Pilon.
Hudson is about to get some serious TV exposure, all of it positive, and the town is looking for help from residents and community organizations to make it all happen.
The popular French-language, million plus viewer Radio-Canada program, La Petite Séduction, has chosen Hudson as one of the towns to be highlighted in their 11th year in production and they are looking for local people, local animals, and familiar Hudson locations to help show their viewers what an interesting, picturesque and exciting town Hudson is.
Says Nicolas Pedneault, Hudson’s Director of Tourism and Culture, “We are asking Hudsonites to take an hour, more or less, to help their town, their community, and themselves to a touch of stardom. We all deserve a taste of our fifteen minutes of fame. And we are looking for volunteers full of civic pride, energy, and enthusiasm to participate in the production.”
Organizers are looking for the following - People to be one of a large crowd welcoming a special guest to the town. A vintage 1960s-era decor table and two chairs for the set. Ushers and guests to fill Hudson Village Theatre and for crowd control. Women singers dressed in vintage 1960s-era housewife clothing. And parents and children to be part of the community scene.
They are also seeking some of Hudson’s most amazing pets, be it feather, fur or scales. Amazing pet tricks. People willing to help when and where they are needed. And someone or some organization, school or otherwise, to help design and create a banner.
Says Pedneault, “Let’s show the rest of Canada what Hudson is all about. A small town with a big heart and a big history in the province of Quebec where French, English and all other nationalities work together for the love of their town and the common good.”
