"If you don't enjoy it, that's the day to pack it up. You've got to be really keen."
Robert says he really enjoys Manor's set pieces, like the bucket game, where children from the audience come up on stage and play a game like musical chairs, but with buckets.
You'd never know Robert was anything less than fighting fit from watching him keeping audiences well entertained in the larger than life role of Nurse Nora Virus in Snow White at Sheffield City Hall.
"We turned round and you could just see two flippers sticking up from the orchestra pit. He'd fallen as he'd just lost complete track of the edge of the stage."
This is his 20th panto for Manor and he has also played the Dame and Ugly Sister, as well as comic characters.
suit with visible thong at the back.
Robert says he wouldn't miss the chance to play the role. "It's hard work and you lose your Christmas and New Year. Everybody works hard.
Robert adds: "You've got to think on your feet. If something goes wrong you want to bring the audience in on it."
He said: "I started off as a broker's man (a comedy Nike Air Max Blue And White Pattern

"The last few years I've played the baddie.
"As long as the audience is brought in, it's fine."
Dame on as Nurse Nora Virus makes light of his health issues
The former teaching assistant, who lives in Ecclesall, has blood cell cancer Hodgkin's lymphoma and has to have some kidney scans done in hospital straight after the pantomime run.
Simon, a food safety officer, loves playing a role where he has to get the children on his side. He said: "There's lots of audience participation.
This is his fourth time playing the Dame for celebrated city amateur company Manor Operatic.
Robert has had an elaborate headdress fall off before. He said: "You just play along with it.
He added: "I love the bucket game, not knowing what's going to happen. The pressure's on and I like to think I thrive in that environment."
He says he knows the script backwards, so that he can then ad lib: "Something might happen, like the sacking of a prime minister or a scandal. You have a little bit of banter about Nigella Lawson."
