Job-side Productions

The Job-side Project umbrella has grown (which we love!) to now include Job-side Productions and Job-side Staged Readings.

Job-side Productions are fully produced evenings from members of the Jobsite Ensemble that occur late nights or off-nights in the theater when the mainstage production does not need the space.

Jobsite has hosted events of this type in the form of an evening of short plays (Short Comings), a one-woman show (See Bob Run), a full one-act play (The House of Yes) and even stand-up comedy (LOL: An evening with Mr. FunnyBlackman).

Any Jobsite Ensemble member may petition the Producing Artistic Director for a slot, and determinations are made on an ongoing basis. Jobsite provides the space, technical support in the form of loans from scenic, costume and prop stock and offers basic marketing support to the artist. This is an excellent opportunity for ensemble members to stretch or showcase their talents or further develop their craft.

Job-Side Staged Readings

Job-side Staged Readings are an excellent opportunity for playwrights to have their work loosely staged and read aloud by our ensemble. These readings are done with script in hand with a minimal number of rehearsals for the actors, typically on a make-shift set and minimal technical embellishment. The emphasis here is on the exploration of the written word, and Jobsite typically offers an opportunity after the reading for the playwright and possibly the other artists to gather feedback from the audience.

Jobsite has used this series to workshop commissioned pieces such as The March of the Kitefliers and Pericles and has also graduated work from the Staged Reading Series to the mainstage.

TECO Theatre, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Israel Horovitz is a national theatrical treasure and has written over 70 plays in as many years. From The Indian Wants The Bronx through The Widow’s Blind Date Horovitz’ plays often examine why men murder one another. Horovitz directs his own play featuring a quartet of Tampa Bay actors in a play bursting with banter and the rhythms of working-class one-upmanship.
