Will Boutet I am a 27 year old french-american actor, director and playwright. I first started acting in Paris, in numerous adaptations of anglo-saxon musicals such as West Side Story or Hair. I studied acting at the Cours Florent, an acting school based in Paris, where I starred in adaptations of plays such as Les Enivrés (The Drunks) by Viripaev or Les Bas Fonds (The Lower Depths) by Gorki. After having completed both a parisian tour of The Dreamer, my first written and directed play, and my first acting experience at the Avignon Theater Festival in July 2023, in an adaptation of Antigonick by Anne Carson, I am now currently part of numerous european theater companies, including The Théâtre en Anglais, in which I play the parts of Hyde in Dr. Jekyll & Mr.Hyde, and of both Merlin and Lancelot in King Arthur : The Quest For The Grail, both plays directed by Lucille O'Flanagan.

J B MANIS - Musicien JB Manis est musicien français, né à Paris dans les années 70. Au cours d’un voyage aux USA, il découvre dès l’enfance le folklore américain des états du sud. Le blues poussiéreux du delta du Mississippi, le rock endiablé du Texas, le bluegrass virtuose de Caroline du sud… Une rencontre qui bouleversera sa vie, et le mènera à acheter sa 1ere guitare. Autodidacte et passionné, il fait ses classes dans les clubs parisiens, où il côtoie quelques grands noms du style : Lucky Peterson, Luther Allison, Keziah Jones, J-J Milteau et tant d’autres, avec qui il joue, inlassablement ce blues qui le ronge jusqu’à l’os et le laisse exsangue au petit matin. Il compose souvent pour la TV et le cinéma, part en tournée pour accompagner d’autres artistes, mais ce qui le hante et le poursuit sans cesse, c’est cette musique noire américaine, capable sur trois accords, de rendre fou ceux qui la jouent, et d’apaiser les maux de ceux qui l’écoutent. Multi instrumentiste, il s’est fait une spécialité des instruments à cordes américains… Guitare picking, banjo, dobro, il continue de battre le macadam en quête de nouvelles rencontres, de nouvelles expériences…
Rosie Nicholas : Oliver Hi there! My name is Rosie and I play Agnes and Oliver Twist in the show. I’m born and raised in East London, and still live there now. This is my first tour with TNT/ADGE and I’m very excited to be bringing this story to audiences around Europe. I love travelling, so I’m very excited to be visiting so many exciting and new places!
Rosie Devlin : Nancy Hi! I'm Rosie. I'm from London and this is my first time performing with TNT. This is also my first time touring Europe, and the first time seeing any European cities! The closest I've come before would be Disneyland Paris, which doesn't really count... Back home, I have my partner Adrian and a beautiful kitten called Persephone, Goddess of the Underworld. She goes by Seffy because her full name and title is a bit of a mouthful. I miss them both so much but I'll be able to go home with lots of stories from my travels, which I'm so grateful for. This version of Oliver Twist is far closer to the original novel than any other adaptation I've experienced. It has therefore been an absolute pleasure getting to know this Nancy! I really hope you enjoy the show.
Gareth Radcliffe : Bill Sikes My name is Gareth but everyone calls me Gaz. I love playing the roles of Bill Sikes and the Beadle, and its not the first time I have done this - it's actually 18 years since I first performed this play. It's maybe my favourite/!In real life I live in Brighton which is a great town in southern England with my wife, Ali who I met on a theatre tour with this company - in Costa Rica playing in Shakespeare's KING LEAR. I am passionate supporter of Liverpool Football club and I am delighted to be back performing in La Belle France.
Marianne Steggall : Dodger Hi my name’s Marianne, I’m 24 and I’m a bilingual actor in English and French. This show is my professional debut after graduating drama school in 2021. I’m really excited to play the Artful Dodger and tour Europe with this incredible cast
Andrew Mockler : Fagin I'm an actor and musician originally from Middlesbrough. I've lived and worked all over the world and it is my privilege to perform in my second show with TNT/ADGE. I have performed with Sting as a musician, and as an actor I have worked on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Das Boot, and just finished filming on Disney series A Small Light. I am a passionate movie goer and love the cinematic experience. I am an avid gamer, music lover, and love anything with a good story and compelling characters. I love animals, particularly dogs and cats. And I always have time for a good cheese sandwich. Paul Stebbings : Director I am Paul Stebbings the director and writer of OLIVER TWIST- OK Charles Dickens wrote it really but I hope he would approve of this version of his work. Dickens was very young when he wrote the novel which is the first novel in the world to be about a child and have the child in the title! I live in Munich in Germany but was born in Nottingham like Robin Hood! I love to tour theatre to France and also often go cycling in France which is such a great country to visit. Here is me on my bicycle in France!

Lucille O’Flanagan, après des études d’art dramatique à Londres, se lance très rapidement dans la direction théâtrale. Dans les années 80, elle fonde «Theatre in Conservation », une compagnie théâtrale itinérante, qu’elle accompagne pendant 5 ans. Membre depuis 1986 du Director’s Guild of Great Britain, elle s’est beaucoup investie et s’est créée une forte réputation en Angleterre pour son travail dans la « comédie alternative ». «Le théâtre contemporain, les adaptations modernes d’œuvres classiques, ont besoin d’ambassadeurs pour les porter, les défendre et les promouvoir », affirme-t-elle, « et c’est un rôle que j’ai souhaité tenir dans ma carrière » Pour célébrer le nouveau millénaire, en 2000, Lucille déménage en France. À l'âge de 40 ans, elle reprend les rênes de l'association Théâtre en anglais et la transforme en une toute nouvelle compagnie ayant pour objectif principal la création de nouvelles adaptations d'histoires anciennes. Plus récemment, elle a confié à Sam Pinnell le mandat de produire une pièce de théâtre sur la vie de Nelson Mandela. Un nouveau projet qui lui tient à cœur sur le monde de William Shakespeare et qui concerne maintenant un nouvel écrivain, Marc Zakian, va également voir le jour en 2019-2020. Lucille est occasionnellement actrice, vue au cinéma comme Lady Di mum dans le film “LOL” et Debbie McWilliams / Linda Gerard dans la série “Dix pour cent” (connu sous le nom de “Call My Agent” au Royaume-Uni).
