TAMPA - Jobsite will kick off its 15th season as resident theater company of the Straz Center with Annie Baker’s 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Flick” Sept. 1- 24, in the Straz’s Shimberg Playhouse, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa.

In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees (Georgia Mallory Guy, Brian Shea and Thomas Morgan) mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming far more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, “The Flick” is a hilarious and heartrending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

Tampa Bay area theatergoers may recall Baker’s work from the recent critically-acclaimed production of “The Aliens” at Stageworks Theater, directed by David M. Jenkins, Jobsite’s producing artistic director.

These new team members join freeFall’s current staff led by Eric Davis, artistic director; and Cheryl Forchilli, executive director. freeFall Theatre was founded in 2008 and established its permanent home at 6099 Central Ave. in 2011. During this short time, freefall has continued to excite audiences while being featured in national publications like Tampa Bay Times, American Theatre Magazine, Time Out New York and The New York Times. After many years of steady growth, freeFall now has 11 full-time employees working together to produce a season of plays and musicals operating under a Small Professional Theatre Contract (SP-7) in agreement with Actor’s Equity Association.

Murray joins the team as freeFall’s first development director. Murray’s most recent position was at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, where she served as donor development manager for two years and was instrumental in bringing numerous new donors into the museum fold. Prior to joining the MFA, Murray served as executive director for the Tampa Bay International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival from 2001-2003, program director from 2009-2010, and back as ED in 2014-15, after earning her master’s degree in arts administration from Savannah College of Art and Design.
