The Rob Guest Endowment is one of Australia’s most exciting scholarship programs providing financial assistance and industry support to the next generation of musical theatre stars, creators and musicians.

This year, the prize package is valued at over $50,000, with $20,000 allocated to the major prize, the Rob Guest Endowment Award.

Six bright young stars will be selected to showcase their talents at our Rob Guest Endowment Concert before the scholarship winners are chosen.

The Rob Guest Endowment Technical Award in Honour of Sue Nattrass and the Rob Guest Endowment Musician Award will again be presented in 2016. These awards are fully funded by the Capitol Theatre and Sydney Lyric and include a $10,000 cash prize intended to help the recipients become leaders in their field.

These awards are open to all practitioners working or seeking to work backstage and in orchestra pits of musical theatre shows around the country.
