Jobsite is growing! We are ready to launch into a new phase that will expand our reach as we continue to make an indelible contribution to the cultural life of Tampa Bay. We are set to expand on our work as resident theater company at the Straz Center, expand our community outreach programs, and provide our Artistic Director a full-time salary. These plans are at the heart of our first annual campaign.

A generous 3-year matching grant from the Gobioff Foundation has laid the foundation for this endeavor. On behalf of the Jobsite Board we invite you to contribute to the future of Jobsite and to the cultural life of the region. No donation is too small – any amount is welcome and appreciated.

Standing ovations for all who support us! Thank you, and see you at the show!

In covering the news of Tampa Bay over the last two decades, I’ve come to realize the importance of a vital and well supported arts culture. Sports are fun, beaches are beautiful, but nothing raises awareness and advances our humanity quite like music, fine art, film and theater.

That’s why I’m so excited to help Jobsite expand their creative reach with more performances, more outreaches to underserved segments of our community, and more opportunities for artists of all kinds to make a living wage here in Tampa Bay.

Please join me in helping more people discover the magic that happens on stage at every Jobsite performance!

“The Gobioff Foundation is proud to support Jobsite Theater, an integral and essential part of the arts community in the Tampa Bay area. We’re excited to help them reach the next step in their journey.”

Best Theater Company 2015

“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.”

If we’re to continue our reach into our schools and community, if we are to increase and diversify the programs on our stages, if we are to continue to improve our work and the lives of the artists who create it, we need more resources.

We’ve grown from humble beginnings in a converted house in Ybor to resident company of one of the largest performing arts centers in the country. A company with a growing national reputation as evidenced by recent articles in American Theatre Magazine and with our recognition as a finalist for the prestigious American Theatre Wing National Theatre Company Award.

We hope that you agree, and that you join us by becoming a part of our annual campaign!
