Directed by William Brown, the cast includes Chris Amos (ensemble), Samuel Ashdown (Tom Jones), Nora Fiffer (ensemble), Molly Glynn (ensemble), Melanie Keller (ensemble), John Lister (ensemble), Cristina Panfilio (ensemble), Eric Parks (ensemble) and Marcus Truschinski (ensemble).

Here's how the production is billed: "Tom Jones is an amiable young rascal with a fondness for the fairer sex...and for getting into trouble. Caught succumbing to the charms of local girl Molly and the refined Sophia, poor Tom is banished by his benefactor and sets off on a whirlwind of misadventures in this new adaptation of Henry Fielding's classic novel, a charming tale full of timeless wit and good old-fashioned, bawdy fun."

"The collaboration of Jeff-nominated playwright Jon Jory and Jeff Award-winning director Bill Brown is an irresistible combination of style, swashbuckling thrills and sexy humor. These two Northlight veterans bring their considerable skills back to our stage in a new adaptation of Henry Fielding's lusty comic classic," artistic director BJ Jones said in a previous statement.

Tom Jones features scenic design by Jeffrey D. Kmiec, costume design by Carolyn Cristofani and Rachel Anne Healy, lighting design by Sarah Hughey and sound design by Andrew Hansen. Kevin Asselin is fight choreographer and Rita Vreeland is stage manager.

Performances continue through Feb. 23.
