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.

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.
