According to the filmmakers, extras are needed for crowd scenes. They say that they mostly need adults ages 18 to 70, but children age 6 and older are also welcome, too. The greatest need for extras will be on Sunday, March 12th  and Saturday and Sunday, March 18th and  19th. They also hope to find extras who would be available on more than one day for multiple scenes.
