Audition for Mark Brown's Adaptation of TOM JONES Next Wednesday
Just snagged an audition for this. This could be a lot of fun as Mark Brown has authored many amusing adaptations of literary works, designed for small casts to play several roles. It would be like THE 39 STEPS. Here are the details: TOM JONES Theatre V/T: Florida Studio Theatre 2013-14 Winter Mainstage Season Sarasota FL AEA LORT D Artistic Director: Richard Hopkins Director: Mark Shanahan Casting Director: James Ashford Auditions: January 29th & 30th, 2014 Begins rehearsal – March 14, 2014 Show opens – April 11, 2014 Show closes – May 31, 2014 TOM JONES by Mark Brown. Tom Jones, a charming young man of questionable birth, is madly in love with Sophia Western, who is equally in love with Tom. But when Sophia’s father arranges for her to marry a loathsome man, she flees for her life. When Tom is subsequently banished from his home, he goes in search of Sophia. Aristocrats, wenches and scalawags abound in this bawdy and rollicking romp through the back roads and bedchambers of England. An adaptation of the ground-breaking novel The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling by Henry Fielding. My audition is next Wednesday in Manhattan.
