Ron Sommer, reputedly a respectable retired university Professor, has willingly spent over 52 years (and over 200 productions) making a fool of himself on stage – from Connecticut and Vermont, to California, to Indiana, and for the past 14 years in Florida. During this latter period he had appeared in shows for the Shimberg, Theatre II at USF, the Gorilla Theatre, American Stage, Fresh! Live! Theatre!, etc. He appeared several years ago as the crotchety Professor Krempe (type casting?) in Playing with Fire: After Frankenstein for Jobsite. This season he will be playing the crotchety Judge Popper (type casting again?) in The History of the Devil. As the oldest member of this season’s emsemble, he is pleased to be working with the talented – and young – Jobsite crew again.
