Jones plays the role of the Innkeeper in BPC’s Man of La Mancha. He is the leader of the prisoners in the beginning of the story, and then is cast as the Governor once Quixote begins to spin his tale. Jones describes his character as being, “a gruff man, but he does seem to have a little compassion for Don Quixote in the end.”

His favorite part about playing the Innkeeper, Jones says, is “being in charge and having a rough demeanor.” Making the character interesting without “going overboard” is his biggest challenge.

In BPC’s Man of La Mancha, Meador portrays one of the Muleteers, Jose. Meador describes her character as a member of “an annoying gang of guys who lie, cheat, and steal.”  However, she likes playing the role because she transforms into “a nasty old man.” 

Her greatest challenge is lowering her voice throughout the performance to convince the audience she’s a man.
