Biography

Robert is an actor, singer, dancer, makeup artist and performer based in North Vancouver. This is his 3rd Panto with DCS having acted in Captain Hooks Revenge (Slugbucket), The Grand Old Duke Of York (Tommy Tucker) and now directing Santa in Space.

Robert hopes to pursue musical theatre and plans to attend Capilano University’s Musical Theatre Program. Robert would like to thank everyone that has helped him produce this show especially his costume designer and seamstress Gina Pistilli for designing and sewing over 25 costumes for this show. As a space theme has never been done at DCSS, you can imagine the detail she went into for each costume. Thank you Gina!!!

Finally, as this is Robert’s first time directing a show of this caliber, he truly hopes this show keeps you on the edge of your seat!
