Crew Bios:

Robb Huddleston’s (director/producer) entertainment journey started over 39 years ago at the age of four when he climbed onto a chair in a tiny Southern Baptist Church in North Carolina and sang with the 30-member choir backing him up every Sunday morning. As he grew older, his passion for the stage led him to perform in various settings from local productions to theme park shows, cruise ships to Branson theatres, and various musical tours, including lead vocalist on the ‘97 World Cruise on Cunard’s QE2.
After nine years at sea, Robb decided to return to the states and move to NYC, where he discovered the behind-the-scenes world of creating entertainment, rather than being the entertainment. Robb worked in production on “Late Show with David Letterman” and later as aTalent Booker, Talent Director and Associate Producer for numerous live televised network events on NBC, CBS, VH1, TNT, and A&E, including Christmas in Rockefeller, St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Pop Goes the Fourth, the US Open, NYC Marathon, Race to the Altar, VH1’s Experience Music Project, and more.
In 2004, Robb accepted a position as Entertainment Operations Manager with Paramount Parks. In this role, Robb had complete creative license in producing all of the musical staged shows and productions throughout the Paramount venues, working alongside major players like Nickelodeon. In 2008, Robb headed west and became the Director of Operations for the Stern Grove Festival Association, an internationally renowned annual concert series attended by more than 100,000 people annually. Robb created Robbie Wayne Productions in 2012 and has chosen “Pageant the Musical” as his SF musical theatre producing / directing debut. Robb is thrilled to bring his passion for performance to San Francisco’s thriving arts and entertainment scene!
