OTHER

From the book writer of ALLEGIANCE comes BASTARD JONES, a rock musical comedy based on the raucous 18th century novel The History of Tom Jones. This rollicking adventure of deception, misunderstanding and bed-hopping centers on Tom Jones, a bastard-born charmer with a heart of gold and a knack for trouble who’s looking for love in all the wrong places.

All rehearsals and performances will be at the cell.

BREAKDOWN

TOM and others:
Rock/legit tenor (full voice to B4, falsetto to F5). An impetuous 19 year-old with the enthusiasm and self-discipline of a puppy, along with an effortless sex appeal. Tom is an electric guitar in a harpsichord world.

SOPHIA and others:
Soprano with mix-belt (legit to B5 with popped E6; mix/belt A3-D5). Though she appears to be a dutiful schoolgirl, this minister’s daughter is strong-willed, quick-witted with a longing for liberation.

PARTRIDGE and others:
Baritone; a drunken con artist of middle-age with the grizzled demeanor of a rock ‘n roll roadie but a heart of gold

MR. BLIFIL, LORD FELLAMAR, MR. FITZPATRICK and others:
Baritone-Tenor (major rock falsetto to F5) to play young men. Blifil is a an unctuous 18-year-old weasel; Fellamar is a young Lord who’s never had to think for himself; Mister Fitzpatrick is a hot-headed Irishman.

SQUIRE ALLWORTHY, NANNY'S LOONY MUM and others:
Tenor or Alto to play middle and upper age. Allworthy is a gentle gentleman, but his sense of justice blinds him to the truth. Nanny’s Loony Mum is a delusional old woman prone to profanity.

REVEREND SHEPHERD, EXECUTIONER and others:
Baritone-Bass (low D2 needed) to play middle age. Reverend Shepherd is a pompous and self-righteous gasbag; the Executioner is a jaded civil servant.

MOLLY SEAGRIM, HARRIET FITZPATRICK and others:
2nd Soprano-Belt to play young women. Molly is a sexually free peasant of limited intelligence; Harriet is a high-strung woman of high birth

MRS. WATERS, LADY BELLASTON and others:
2nd Soprano-Alto to play middle-aged women. Mrs. Waters is a saucy and savvy fallen woman determined to fall upwards; Lady Bellaston is a noblewoman of ignoble character, an 18th century cougar.

BRIDGET BLIFIL, LANDLADY NANNY and others:
2nd Soprano-Alto to play middle-aged women. Bridget is a repressed aristocrat in ill-health; Landlady Nanny is a crafty, crotchety survivor.
