Jobsite Theater will partner with fellow local not-for-profit organization Metropolitan Ministries for a food drive during their production of Dario Fo’s We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay!, which plays June 1 – 18 in TBPAC’s Shimberg Playhouse.
Metropolitan Ministries provides food (among many other vital services) to over ten thousand homeless and hungry Bay area residents each year. Jobsite recognizes that a lot of attention is given to charities such as Metropolitan Ministries during the holiday season and wishes to help contribute in stocking their food pantry during the middle of the year, when items can begin to get low.
During all performances of We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! Jobsite will host a collection barrel in front of the theater for one hour preceding every performance and will accept donations for non-perishable food items. Jobsite Theater is the resident theater company in the Shimberg Playhouse at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center.
“The characters in We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! suffer from hunger – not just for food but for dignity, justice and opportunity” said Jobsite Artistic Director David Jenkins. “It’s important for us to work with other community organizations to help make this a better place for everyone.” In the past Jobsite has developed programs to help benefit Hillsborough Association of Retarded Citizens and Tampa Fire Rescue.
