Congratulations to Danielle Matthews on being in the augural winner of the Rob Guest Endowment. The concert was a great celebration of not only Rob’s career, but also the new careers of upcoming theatre performers. Danielle now receives a trip to Broadway in New York to learn more about the industry, $1000 cash, and tuition with industry experts.
The six finalists – all incredibly talented – performed alongside some big names in the industry, including Lucy Durack and the cast of Wicked, Caroline O’Connor, Craig McLachlan and the cast of Chicago, Anthony Callea and Rhonda Burchmore. HMT was very honoured to be the host of the inaugural concert, and we look forward to a long association with the Endowment to help emerging performers well into the future.
