Annual Campaign

Join our Annual Campaign

Our $100,000 Goal

We may live in uncertain times, but thankfully we’re also part of a great community. Your support these past few years helped us survive a global pandemic not every regional theater made it through – and we still see more theaters closing in 2023 from the damage already wrought. The way we do business has changed likely for good, with costs still at an all time high.

Since we started our Annual Campaign, the funds raised have allowed us to inspire and entertain over 100,000 people while employing over 400 artists – all who call this region home. It has allowed us to develop an education program that has offered over 25,000 students access to professional, engaging theater while sparking the imaginations of even more directly in their classrooms at school. The Annual Campaign also allows us to keep a majority of the cost of a ticket going into the pockets of our artists, and not to overhead.

This fall, we will take a major step to offering a living wage to our artists when we increase guaranteed actor and stage manager salaries by 41%, with offstage salaries increasing between 25-50% by area. Jobsite also pays all apprentices and interns at a rate no less than $15/hr, and can boast that not a single person is volunteering their time to the creation of a show out of simple passion.

In 2020 we brought over 1,600 students into our theater for A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the way to impacting over 5,000 students in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando, and Manatee counties. In 2022 we were among the first to return to in-person field trips with Romeo & Juliet, and Hamlet just set records with a sold-out field trip run.

Producing Artistic Director
Jobsite Theater brought the Bay area successful productions of more plays of real substance than any other local house.… Jobsite has become a real treasure, indispensable to our arts scene. – Creative Loafing

We’ve grown from humble beginnings, first occupying a converted casita “on the wrong side of the tracks” in Ybor City to now serving as the resident company of one of the largest performing arts centers in the country. We’re not only consistently recognized regionally for the quality of our programming, but also boast a national reputation with coverage in publications like American Theatre Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. We’re the only company in the history of this region to ever be named as a finalist for the prestigious American Theatre Wing National Theatre Company Award and are a five-time finalist for the NEA’s Shakespeare in American Communities Award.

Please join us in 2023 by standing alongside our generous supporters who believe in our work, our mission, and our importance in this community by giving to our Annual Campaign today!
