He is now hugely successful in musical theatre with his credits including Wicked, Grease, Legally Blond, The Last Five Year, Into the Woods, Hair and most recently Ghost the Musical.
As well as a proven stage performer, Rob has established himself on the small screen with appearances on Celebrity Apprentice, Dancing with the Stars, Spics and Specs, The Footy Show, The Project and as host of Young Talent Time in 2012.
Rob plays Finn Kelly, a progressive and respected school teacher appointed by Susan Kennedy played by industry icon Jackie Woodburne. However, there is more to the affable Mr Kelly than meets the eye as local residents will discover when glimpses of his past are gradually exposed.
