2018The performers did a fantastic job of creating a show that incorporated music, dance, puppetry and audience participation.

2018It was obvious that Biff was “dancing” as the actor moved him... And it certainly didn’t diminish the magic.
Karen - Stopping At Two

2018With excellent make-up and costumes, physical theatre techniques and characterisation, the characters are all believable, quirky and endearing.

2018The guy playing professor burp was very funny, but most importantly (and somewhat suprising) he knew his stuff!

    About me

    I currently work as an Actor, Author and Agent bringing creativity, passion and professionalism to every project that I approach.

    Since graduating East 15 Acting School, I've toured family theatre internationally, worked in film, interacted with immersive productions. I've specialised in interactive theatre using my vocal and physical dexterity to create enigmatic characters. I'm also an experienced Puppeteer and Percussionist, and often integrate these additional skills into productions.

    I work as an Author, creating relatable stories with fantasy contexts, which often combines with my devising experience when creating new productions.

    Over the last year, I've begun working as Agent and have set up my own agency - Robert Solomon Casting - which connects Artists, Theatre Companies and Producers.
