2019 – 20 Season

a great reckoning in a little room

The quote, from Shakespeare’s As You Like It, nods to the intimacy of our home in the Shimberg Playhouse and the themes we often confront in our productions. The tag also references Bert States’ 1985 book Great Reckonings in Little Rooms, a title Producing Artistic Director David M. Jenkins credits as greatly influential on Jobsite’s artistic philosophy.

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Nobody does comedy like the wild ‘n’ crazy guy, and nobody around here does Steve Martin like Jobsite. Building on Jobsite’s sold-out success of Martin’s other plays, Picasso at the Lapin Agile and The Underpants, this “keening-like-a-howler-monkey funny” (Entertainment Weekly) hit takes place during a particularly influential meteor shower. A set of married couples convene to take in the cosmic spectacle and wind up affected in spectacularly unexpected — and hilarious — ways.

The Thanksgiving Play

By Larissa Fasthorse

Directed By Kari Goetz

Oct. 25 – Nov. 17, 2019

Tickets start at: $29.50

Preview Performances: Oct. 23 – 24 | Tickets start at : $18

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Let’s see… how to create a holiday pageant that simultaneously celebrates Thanksgiving while honoring Native American Heritage Month in the most aware and least offensive way possible? Such is the riddle of existence for this troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists struggling through a bog of absurd assumptions while toting their bounty of good intentions. Larissa FastHorse’s blisteringly-funny side-eye comedy gives new meaning to the phrase Turkey Day. “Very, very funny … skewers liberal pretensions with glee — this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful” (The Hollywood Reporter).

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

By William Shakespeare

Directed By David M. Jenkins

Extended! Jan. 17 – Feb. 16, 2020

Tickets start at : $29.50

Preview Performances: Jan. 15 – 16 | Tickets start at : $18

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

As a famous man once noted, “the course of true love never did run smooth.” That famous man happened to be William Shakespeare writing dialogue for this fantastical, whimsical, dreamy and delirious plot that does, in fact, prove the adage true. With Puck running the show, the Fairy King and Queen at war and four young lovers ensconced in an enchanted wood on Midsummer’s Eve, there’s no way we’re getting out of this play without taking a very funny, very bumpy ride. With the return of Cincinnati Shakespeare Company veteran Giles Davis as Bottom and original music from The Florida Bjorkestra’s Jeremy Douglass, Jobsite once again delivers an extraordinary imagining of a beloved Shakespeare play.

Doubt: A Parable

By John Patrick Shanley

Directed By Summer Bohnenkamp


Tickets start at : $29.50

Preview Performances: Mar. 11 – 12 | Tickets start at : $18

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

A priest, a nun, an accusation but no proof. John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer- and Tony-winning drama about what may or may not have happened with a student in a Bronx parochial school shoves the certainty of faith into a shadow of a doubt. Time Out NY hails this ambiguous turn of events as “an eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences; a gripping mystery, tightly written.”
