After the sudden death of Rob Guest, OBE, in October 2008, and in recognition of his achievements in the musical theatre industry, ANZ Trustees established a memorial fund in his honour to help emerging young performers in musical theatre.
The Rob Guest Endowment will be awarded each year to an emerging musical theatre performer selected by a panel of industry experts, providing the performer with further knowledge and training in the industry. This training will assist in developing their potential, and the support gained from the Endowment was all part of Rob Guest’s philosophy on building a career in the arts.
In the words of Kellie Dickerson: “Rob always believed that no one gets to the top of their field on their own. Its remarkable what this type of support can do for a performers confidence and career”.
As proud supporters of the Rob Guest Endowment AussieTheatre has put together this special video feature about the event, the award and why it is such a wonderful opportunity for young performers in Australia.
The 2012 Rob Guest Endowment will take place at Her Majesty’s Theatre on Monday November 19.
