Robert has been with The Walking Theatre Company for eight years and has played many different roles. He says he enjoys his work with the Company as it is both challenging and gives him the opportunity to immerse himself in a who variety of different characters. He makes a marvellously zany Mad Hatter in ‘The White Rabbit’s Wonderland Adventure’. Other roles include, ‘Baron Cant Be Bothered’ in the Power Down Play and ‘Long John Silver’ In Pirate Island. He spends most of his weekends, making audiences giggle in our regular Dinner Theatre events. One of these shows is ‘Audition With A Vampire’ and Robert makes a brilliant TV Agents assistant, ‘Dickie’ . Robert tells us that this is one of his favourite roles as Dickie is way, way, way, over the top! Not at all like our reserved Mr Howat. Another loved character is ‘The Great Wiz’ in our show ‘Wiz Around Oz’, Robert says he also greatly enjoy playing this part as he can explore being, absent minded and loopy! Which is just how we like him!
Robert can also been found working with Theatre Broad – https://www.facebook.com/theatrebroad – and has taken his own work to the Edinburgh Fringe.
