Right This Way Robbie
The role of Jack-of-All-Trades is one that comes natural To Right This Way Robbie. Having worked in theater as an actor-combatant, fight choreographer, writer, director, carpenter, student of improv, stage hand and tech, Robbie’s squirrel-like attention span and energy has pushed him towards being a theatrical polymath of sorts. Using this wide base of knowledge, he strives to bring a unique sense of character and physicality to his performances while happily filling in the gaps between his talented company members. RTWR spends his free time just in just as spastic a fashion as a fan of books, comics, tabletop and video games, hockey, biking,, music, sci-fi and sci-fact, coffee and bourbon. With the realization that he is crafting his life into the circus his family still swear they purchased him from, Robbie takes his moniker from the classic Barker ushering a crowd towards the evening’s entertainment. “Step right up, right this way!”
