Auditions and hiring for 23-24

**UPDATE 12/6/23** In-person callbacks for El Maleficio de la Mariposa are now scheduled for Sat., Jan. 27, from 2-5pm.**

For El Maleficio de la Mariposa we are looking for 6 versatile multi-disciplinary performers who can sing, “move,” create and inhabit multiple characters with clarity and alacrity, and who possess unique non-traditional theater skill sets like puppetry and aerial circus arts. 

This show is performed with an English text and song lyrics in Lorca’s original Spanish, bilingual performers are greatly appreciated but not required.

Maleficio is being developed and presented in Jobsite’s unique style as displayed in  Jobsite’s ALICE and Shockheaded Peter, meaning we demand a team of artists who are both self-driven and can give and take with grace as part of an intense, fast-paced collaboration.

All roles are open, one of the six tracks is specifically for a performer with strong aerial skills.

Jobsite is an equal opportunity employer, and we desire the folks on our stages and behind the scenes to be representative of this wonderful community we serve in every way. We urge members of historically marginalized and/or under-represented communities to apply. 

To be considered for a Maleficio callback, email auditions AT jobsitetheater DOT org  with:

  • A video link (no attachments, please) to an audition including a 1-minute monologue or poem and 2 short song selections (up-tempo and ballad). Feel free to include any relevant footage of special skills at the end. 
  • A a single PDF file containing both headshot and resume (no jpg/doc combinations, please) and make sure that the filename is your name (eg, Viola-Davis.pdf, adittimittal.pdf etc).

All materials are due no later than Fri., Jan., 19. Performers we wish to see for the in-person callbacks on Sat., Jan. 17, will be notified in writing no later than Mon., Jan. 22. Due to the unique nature of this production, virtual callbacks are not available.

All roles are paid $425 a week (on a bi-weekly schedule) for 8 total, and a profit share is available.

Performers must be available for all rehearsals beginning Apr. 16, Tu.-Th. evenings 6:30-10:30pm and Sa.-Su. afternoons 1-5pm. The production schedule requires performers be available for We.-Sa. 7:30 shows and Sa.-Su. 2pm matinees. We are unable to accommodate standing rehearsal conflicts (eg, cannot rehearse Sa. afternoons) or a conflict with any performance

Can we be real a second? We hear through the grapevine we don’t hire new people, or we only hire “our people.” That’s flat not true (we can show the receipts). But, we can’t hire you if we don’t know you. Send in your materials!

We’ve increased pay for 23-24 by 25-50% for most every position we contract. Pay for performers and stage managers in 23-24 is $425 a week for the length of the contract (putting us toward the top of the pack of regional theaters our budget size), plus profit share.

Fee-based positions like designers vary by scope of work $750-$2500 and also carry a profit share. Hourly workers start at $15-$20 an hour depending on the task. All personnel are brought on as 1099 Independent Contractors. 

Actor contracts run 7 to 9 weeks. Rehearsals are Tue-Thu. evenings 6:30-10:30pm and Sa-Su 1-5pm. We are unable to accommodate standing rehearsal conflicts (eg cannot work on Tue. nights or weekends). Performances are Thu – Sat at 7:30pm, Sun. at 2pm, and we can add Wed. 7:30 and Sa. 2pm performances if sales warrant. Most contracts carry an extension clause for one additional week. Performers must agree to their availability for all performances, both actual and tentative, before signing their contract. We are making great strides to invest in our performers in the coming season and, reciprocally, are asking for greater accountability with availability. 


We’re an ensemble-based company of artists who live in the greater Tampa Bay area. We do not offer travel, housing, or per diem. We engage in union hiring on a case-by-case basis, but only for the Shimberg Playhouse, we are unable to offer AEA contracts in the Jaeb Theater (impacting Twelfth Night and Rocky Horror this season).

We do not require current ensemble members to go through the initial audition process, they are invited to callbacks directly. We encourage active ensemble members to speak with David M. Jenkins about interest in the coming season no later than July 1. 

Jobsite attended the Tampa Bay Unified Auditions organized by Theatre Tampa Bay on June 24 and saw 125 members of our acting community. 

If anyone was not able to make Unifieds, we have extended our deadline for video submissions to 6pm on July 1, this deadline cannot be extended again. Follow these instructions:

  • Send a single PDF file containing both headshot and resume (no jpg/doc combinations, please) and make sure that the filename is your name (eg, Viola-Davis.pdf, adittimittal.pdf etc).
  • In the body of the email, include a link (YouTube, Vimeo, etc — no file attachments, please!) to your audition video.
  • If you desire to be considered for El Maleficio de la Mariposa and/or The Rocky Horror Show include roughly 30 seconds of an uptempo song and 30 seconds of a ballad.
  • If you desire to be considered for Twelfth Night, please include a Shakespeare monologue or sonnet roughly no more than 1 minute. Please include another 1 minute non-classical contrasting monologue of your choice.
  • If you are not interested in being seen for Twelfth Night, include two contrasting contemporary one-minute monologues.
  • This video should be roughly 3 minutes in total length if performing songs, 2 minutes if not.
  • Email the single PDF properly named and the video link to NO LATER than 6pm on July 1.
In-person callbacks are by invitation only and will follow this schedule:

Rocky Horror: Mon., July 24, 6:30-9:30pm. Artists called back for this show will be sent sides July 2-3 and should come to the callback prepared to move. Please note: we cannot consider performers under 18 years of age for this production. All roles are open.

Frankenstein: Mon., July 31 6:30-9:30pm. Artists will be sent sides to prepare no later than July 10. All roles other than Victor and the Creature are available.
Twelfth Night: Sat., July 22, 2-6pm. Artists will be sent sides to prepare no later than July 17. Please note: Twelfth Night rehearses during the end-of-year holiday season and we cannot accommodate a long absence. We have Christmas and New Years eves and days off, but performers must otherwise be available. This show will also have up to 8 weekday matinees for high school field trips, and performers must be available those Tue. and Wed. mornings between 9:30am-12:30pm. The role of Feste in Twelfth Night has been cast, all others are open.

PLEASE NOTE: If we are interested in seeing you at a callback and you are not in town on the given day, we will attempt to schedule a Zoom read for you within 48 hours of the scheduled callback — but we sincerely hope to see everyone in person.

All roles in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, and The Smuggler have been filled.
