Jobsite 2020/21 Season Announced; DOUBT Suspended at Straz Center
While Jobsite's production of DOUBT, A Parable, is temporarily suspended in light of the current national health crisis, the resident theater company of the Straz Center is not delaying the release of their new season.
The Straz Center has suspended all performances through April 19 but Jobsite plans to open DOUBT as soon as a clear timeline presents itself. The suspension came on the morning of the show's opening after audiences raved over the previews. Current DOUBT ticketholders will be contacted with options as soon as a plan emerges.The 20/21 season is Jobsite's 22nd year of bringing the Tampa Bay region gripping, powerful experiences in an intimate environment. Producing Artistic Director David M. Jenkins beams "Our current season carries the tagline "a great reckoning in a Little Room" and we're building upon that guiding principle even further in the new season. We believe the 2020/21 line-up to be among our finest, most challenging, and most breathtaking collections. We're proud to offer a darkly delicious Halloween treat, our first Shakespeare history, one of the most iconic dystopias penned by the author himself, a hilariously creepy musical entertainment, and a gut-busting irreverent satire that was recently a hit on Broadway." The 20/21 season focuses on several pieces of great literature adapted to the stage and also on the musical collaborations Jobsite has fostered over the past few years. A season pass is the best way to save money and to show your support for Jobsite's ensemble of 50 regional artists.

A Clockwork Orange: A Play with Music
By Anthony Burgess, adapted from his novel
March 12 - April 4, 2021, previews March 10-11
Edward Gorey, a little bit Nightmare Before Christmas, Shockheaded Peter is the phantasmagorical musical staging of Heinrich Hoffman's dark, mildly-terrifying 19th-century German children's book Struwwelpeter. The show illuminates graphic cautionary tales about a cast of disobedient children like Young Harriett and her pyrotechnic tendencies, little Conrad and his insatiable thumb-sucking and a handful of other misbehaving youngsters who come to untimely and hilariously horrific ends. This production will be of a special, devilishly dark delight to fans of Jobsite's much-beloved production of Gorey Stories.
