Santa Fe —
The Santa Fe Playhouse will present “The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling,” based on a novel by Henry Fielding, with adaptation and direction by Clara Soister. Featuring 14 cast members, it will open on March 14 and run through April 7.
The high-spirited stage production of the classic follows the rollicking misadventures and bawdy conquests of Tom Jones as he romps across 18th century England, from the bedrooms of rural inns to London’s dangerous streets.
Cast out from his home and forbidden his true love, Tom Jones must overcome the charms of an older seductress and the sinister plot of a nefarious rival to win his lover’s heart. The rowdy and completely disarming hero and his infectious exploits come to life in this new adaptation.
The Santa Fe Playhouse is located at 142 E. DeVargas Street between Don Gaspar and Old Santa Fe Trail. Parking is available at the PERA Building.
Performances are at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. There will be no matinee on Easter Sunday, March 31. General admission is $12; seniors pay $10. On Sundays, you pay what you wish. To make reservations, call (505) 988-4262.
