Gulfshore Playhouse partners with Flint- Kids.org throughout the run of “An Enemy of the People” March 26-April 17 at The Norris Center with hopes of being able 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, Mich., who have been exposed to lead through the city’s water supply.

Written in 1882, “An Enemy of the People” tells the story about the contamination of a town’s drinking water. Because the story so closely imitates the situation unfolding in Flint, the theater company decided to use its production of the play to help make a difference in Flint, according to Artistic Director Kristen Coury.

The theater company will donate the full $5 price for every bottle of water sold during the show to FlintKids.org, a fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint that was established as a supplemental resource to the ongoing pursuit of state and federal funding to provide wraparound health and development services for the children of Flint, particularly those most vulnerable, ages birth to 6 years old.
