Florida Studio Theatre announces the opening of the world premiere of “Tom Jones,” by Mark Brown. The show will open in the Gompertz Theatre April 11 and run through June 1. Single tickets range from $18 to $42. Tickets may be purchased online at FloridaStudioTheatre.org, by phone at 941-366-9000 or by visiting the box office.

“Tom Jones” is a world premiere play written by Mark Brown, who also wrote the FST audience favorite, “Around the World in 80 Days.” The play is an adaptation of the ground-breaking novel, “The History of Tom Jones,” a Foundling, by Henry Fielding. In this thrilling adventure of the heart, Tom Jones, a charming young man of questionable birth, is madly in love with Sophia Western. But when Sophia’s father arranges for her to marry a loathsome man, she flees for her life. Aristocrats, wenches and scalawags abound in this bawdy and rollicking romp through the back roads and bedchambers of England.
