For those of you not on the Jobsite Mailing List (and why AREN’T you, huh???)…
The end of our season is upon us. We have two events remaining, and we hope to see you at both if your time permits. Does either event strike you as something a friend would enjoy? Please pass this on.
On Sept. 11 in the Jaeb Theater here at TBPAC we will present an encore performance of Anne Nelson’s The Guys as a benefit for the Tampa Firefighters Museum. In 2003 we raised over $3,000 for the FDNY widow and children fund as well as our own Tampa Fire Rescue. We have an opportunity here to raise up to $5,000 for the Tampa Firefighters Museum, but we need to fill the theater first in order to do that. Jobsite Theater is donating all proceeds from this event above our hard production costs for mounting the performance.
The Guys might be one of the most moving and healing experiences you could have in a theater. At only 70 minutes in length, it doesn’t beleaguer the events of 9-11, the politics, the war – only the human story shared between these two individuals as they spend an afternoon together sharing memories. Paul and Roz Potenza have very graciously volunteered their time for this project, and I’m sure a full theater will be payment enough. I promise you this is a beautiful piece that you won’t forget.
You can get complete information on the show here: http://jobsitetheater.org/guys.htm. On behalf of the board of Jobsite, the artists giving their time to make this happen and the Tampa Firefighters Museum – we sincerely hope you can make it.
The final official event for the 2005 – 2006 season is Jobsite Rocks III at New World Brewery on Sept. 16. The event features a raffle with outstanding prizes (like a casino cruise for 10, a swank import beer gift basket, 3 gift baskets from The Hub, tickets, $300 in free car rentals, spa packages and more) and live music from The Vodkanauts, The Weapons of Ass Destruction and Nessie. Doors start at 8:30, the first raffle drawing is at 9 and The Vodkanauts take the stage at 9:30. Cover is a minimum donation of $6, and raffle tickets are $2 or 3 for $5.
Jobsite Rocks III is more than our last opportunity for us to raise money for the year. We’re barely charging cover, and for the prizes we’re offering the raffle tickets are more than fairly priced – for us this is as much a season wrap party and an opportunity for us to personally thank everyone who has helped get Jobsite where we are.
We owe so many people so much. We have sponsors that treat us like their children, patrons who never miss a show, artists who labor on our projects for a fraction of their worth and Jobsite Rocks is our best opportunity every year to hoist a glass, share the love and rock the &$@* out. Even if it’s for an hour – please stop by. We want to say thanks for everything you do. For more information visit us at http://jobsitetheater.org/jobsiterocksIII.htm.
