Character Analysis

Oliver Twist: A orphan workhouse boy: bright and innocent. This character is in approximately 80% of the scenes. Parents should note he will be required at rehearsal more than any other person in the show.

Artful Dodger: A street kid: very energetic, highly personable, intelligent, and savvy beyond his years, Fagin’s right-hand “man”.

Fagin: Middle-aged leader of a children’s band of thieves: devious, a user, sly fox, con man, very personable, comical.

Nancy: When she was younger worked for Fagin, now a “barmaid” at the Three Cripples Bar. She lives with and loves Bill Sikes, is pretty and intelligent and longs for a better life.

Bill Sikes: Also worked for Fagin as a youth, now a feared master criminal. Good-looking in a rough sort of way, a sociopath, a killer who only looks out for himself.

Mr. Bumble: The Master of the Workhouse: a large, pompous, and corrupt bureaucrat.

Widow Corney: The Mistress of the Workhouse: sharp-tongued widow, also corrupt.

Mr. Sowerberry: The undertaker: Creepy, “buys” Oliver from Bumble to work in the funeral home as a coffin follower and may be an alcoholic.

Mrs. Sowerberry: The undertaker’s wife. More business savvy than her husband. Disagreeable.

Noah Claypole: Undertaker’s apprentice. May have also come from Workhouse. Feels threatened by, dislikes, and torments Oliver.

Charlotte: Sowerberrys’ daughter, Attracted to Noah, flirty.

Mr. Brownlow: Older, kind upper-class gentleman, Oliver’s grandfather.
