Robert Rawles - Pantomime
OH YES IT IS!
Robert has been performing in pantomimes since 1978. He has played a variety of roles, however in recent years he has taken the mantel of being a woman - the panto dame.
For panto season 2015/6 Robert appeared as Widow Twanky at the Theatre Royal, Margate. He also directed.
"A dame with a saucy eye and a funny guy who can play, really play, the audience - including ad libs as necessary, along with oodles of energetic presence and conviction".
"...this enjoyable Aladdin has Rob Rawles (who also directs) as Widow Twankee and Jezo as Wishee Washee both of whom are on top of the game".
