Now Your Gift Goes Even Further!


If you’ve considered making a tax-deductible gift to Jobsite at the end of this year, I urge you to take advantage of the generosity of the Gobioff Foundation, who have graciously agreed to match fifty-cents on the dollar for every gift that comes in over these final days of our power2give Adopt-an-Actor campaign for Twelfth Night.

Thirteen passionate actors are waiting for a special donor like you.

Adopt an actor today!

This campaign must end on Mon., Dec. 29!

Brass Tacks

Monies raised by this campaign will offset our budget for such a large cast and provide vital compensation to cast members who often lose wages from their day jobs to perform in weekday matinees for schools. In addition to those matinees, we’re also offering drastically-reduced prices to student groups for all evening performances while also working with certain schools without the means access to free tickets.

The Story

Twelfth Night is a hilarious tale of mistaken identity and gender confusion in which, after being shipwrecked in a storm and losing her brother, a girl disguises herself as a man to be near the Count she adores, only to be pursued by the woman he loves. This treasured comedy, often cited as Shakespeare’s best, is being set in 1926 prohibition and depression-era Ybor City. We’re working with the Ybor City Museum and Tampa History Center to make it not only educational, but a great celebration of this fine city we all love.

The Justification

Shakespeare is often expensive to produce due to the large cast sizes. Modern producers often cut or combine roles in an effort to bring costs down which can, in some ways, not only confuse the audience but detract from the epic scope of the Bard’s plays. Help us produce this show with a full professional cast of some of Tampa Bay’s finest. With your donations we can do it!

We do not believe in raising or ticket prices above what they are currently set at for general audiences. Theater is for everyone, not just the elite. Students should also have access to an experience like this at a price point that’s accessible. This burden cannot come down on the backs of our artists who already do so much for so little. This means we MUST fundraise to make up the difference.
