Founded in 1998, Jobsite is the resident theater company of the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts (formerly the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center). The company focuses on the creation of new works and “the exploration of material that is often overlooked in the hustle to produce “what’s hot” coming out of New York.”
In 2009-2010, Jobsite marked the 12th season in which it had presented an unpublished play as one of its mainstage productions. Each season also features new or under-produced works by writers from around the world. – For the 2009-2010 season, the unpublished play was Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s boom! Other recent programming includes Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone, Bert V. Royal’s Dog Sees God, David Harrower’s Blackbird, and a 10th-anniversary revival of the theater’s acclaimed production of Clive Barker’s The History of the Devil.
Jobsite works exclusively with local talent. As of this writing, the company has an ensemble of 30 artists who are involved in all areas of theatrical production on the mainstage and who are afforded opportunities to produce second stage work in late-night slots or at other times when the theater would normally be dark.
