Ruthie Henshall’s multi-award winning career has seen her star in the most popular musicals of the past thirty years in the West End and on Broadway, from her iconic appearance as Fantine in Les Misérables (including the tenth anniversary concert) to Cats, Miss Saigon, Crazy For You, She Loves Me (Olivier Award), Marguerite, Oliver!, A Chorus Line, Putting It Together, Billy Elliot (including the worldwide cinema release) and her legendary appearance as both Roxie and Velma in Chicago in the West End and on Broadway. She has also enjoyed tremendous success in plays, in concert and on television. Her recordings include four solo albums and numerous cast recordings.

John Owen-Jones is an award winning and record-breaking West End and Broadway actor and singer who has performed extensively in theatre, television, radio and in concert all over the world. He has also worked as a presenter, voiceover artist and director. He is probably best known, however, for his critically acclaimed and hugely popular performances as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables and as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera. John holds the record for being the youngest actor in West End history to have played Jean Valjean in Les Misérables (a role he also played twice on Broadway) and has performed as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera nearly 2000 times – more than any actor in the show’s entire West End run.
