Jonathan Norris
Over his 28 Tower Company years, Jonathan Norris has been involved in more than seventy productions – whether as actor (Thomas Boleyn in Wolf Hall, Inspector Hubbard in Dial M For Murder, Alfred Doolittle in Pygmalion), music-directing (A Little Night Music and Guys and Dolls), or writing and/or playing musical additions on keyboard or trombone. He has happy memories of playing Ernest in Bedroom Farce, arranging and Music-Directing Nell Gwynn, and playing Sorin in The Seagull in the new Tower’s first season (2018). Recently he has added sound and lighting operation to his repertoire.
  Alison Liney
Alison Liney has most recently been seen in Coram Boy; other recent Tower roles include Lena in Escaped Alone, Madame Arcati in Blithe Spirit, Jean in To Kill a Mockingbird and Mrs Moore in A Passage to India. Life away from the Tower consists mainly of being an Allotment Site Secretary, a role which involves an unexpected amount of crisis management!
Stephanie Farrell
This is Stephanie Farrell‘s first appearance with the Tower Theatre. She has previously performed with KDC Theatre in plays such as The Real Inspector Hound and Noor. She trained at Identity School of Acting, and currently keeps her wits about her as an Improvisational Comedian. Off stage, she works as a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Clinician, and is a Trainee Family Therapist.
  Yasmin Branch
Yasmin Branch has been performing since the age of 4, with lead roles in many shows local to where she grew up. She graduated from performing arts school in 2017 and has since gone on to appear in numerous short films/ features films and commercials as well as productions with the National Youth Theatre.
Laura Fleming
Laura Fleming is thrilled to be a part of the Tower Theatre’s production of London Wall. This is her first production with the Tower, having moved over from Dublin earlier this year. Back in Dublin, she was an active member of University College Dublin’s drama and musical societies, starring in numerous productions such as Company, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, Philadelphia Here I Come! and UCD Dramsoc’s ISDA nominated production of Radiant Vermin.
  Eloise McCreedy
This is Eloise McCreedy‘s Tower Theatre debut. Eloise recently moved to London after growing up in Melbourne, Australia. She graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre and has performed at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and Melbourne Recital Centre. Eloise loves her music and is a trained vocalist and violinist. She was very excited to find the Tower Theatre, seeing it as an opportunity to meet new people, expand on her performance skills and delve into the theatre world of a brand new city.
Nick Edwards
This is Nick Edwards‘ eighth show with the Tower following roles in Under the Blue Sky, The Vortex, The Deep Blue Sea, Time and the Conways, Mother’s Day, Clybourne Park and most recently, Sweat. He has acted and directed on the London stage with various theatre groups, most notably KDC and SEDOS. When not acting, Nick is an assistant principal in an academy in North Kensington.
  Aleksei Toshev
This is Aleksei Toshev‘s first production with the Tower Theatre, and he hopes it to be the first of many! Previous stage credits include Ned Spigett in Nell Gwynn, Autolycus in The Winter’s Tale, Lucky in Waiting for Godot and Frank in The Memory of Water. He is a current member of the National Youth Theatre and has completed multiple courses/classes with RADA and the CSSD.
Sandy Miller
This is Sandy Miller‘s Tower Theatre debut. He studied at the University of Exeter and was involved in productions such as Romeo and Juliet, The Wizard of Oz, and The Ladykillers while at school and University.
  Stephen Brasher
Stephen Brasher has been a Tower regular for over fifteen years starting off doing Front of House duties, and moving on to reviewing our shows, organising both play and company auditions, writing programme notes for each production, delivering flyers and posters.  He was on the company committee for three years and is currently a trustee, with responsibility for membership. He ASM'd on quite a few shows before becoming a Stage Manager – shows in either capacity include Foxfinder, Doctor Faustus, Henry V, Mother's Day, Charley's Aunt, Hindle Wakes, Telstar, Sailor Beware!, Pravda, Frankenstein and Fix Up.  He was the Assistant Director on our 2017 production of Enemy of the People.  He has also played a couple of walk-on roles in shows including a bailiff attacked by Joe Meek and an angry Norwegian in a bowler hat (photo available on request). On Talk Radio he did a range of silly voices including a psychopath with supper prepared and an over sharing  cat owner. He recently fought the fear and operated lights on Nine Night. London Wall is his stage directorial debut with the company, although he directed several Tower plays online during lockdown.
