NAPLES, Fla., March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulfshore Playhouse (www.GulfshorePlayhouse.org), Southwest Florida's premier professional theatre, is pleased to announce that during its production of An Enemy of the People - which runs from March 26 through April 17 at The Norris Center, located at 755 8th Avenue South in Naples, Florida – it will partner with Safe Water. Safe Home. (www.FlintKids.org) to donate the proceeds from every bottle of water purchased. The goal is to contribute the financial equivalent of 5,000 bottles of water by the end of the show's run to support the children of Flint, Michigan.
"Because An Enemy of the People, a story about the contamination of a town's drinking water that was written in 1882, so closely imitates the devastating situation unfolding in Flint, Michigan – and right here in the Gulf of Mexico - we felt it necessary to help. By giving through www.flintkids.org we will be able to support the long-term health and development needs of Flint's children," said Kristen Coury, Founder and Artistic Director of Gulfshore Playhouse.
Safe Water. Safe Home. is a supplemental resource to the ongoing pursuit of state and federal funding to provide wraparound health and development services for the children of Flint, Michigan, particularly those most vulnerable, ages birth to six.
An Enemy of the People tickets start at $45 per person. Two special preview performances will take place on Thursday, March 24 and Friday, March 25, with tickets available for just $30 per person. To purchase tickets, please visit www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org or call 239.261.PLAY(7529).
