In 2008 ANZ Trustees established a memorial fund in Rob Guest’s honour to encourage emerging young performers in musical theatre.
Recipients receive the opportunity to study in New York under the guidance of the best that Broadway has to offer to the value of $10,000.
Each year, there is a Gala Concert celebrating Rob, where the award finalists compete for the prize, and celebrity guests appear and perform.
Twice Kris has directed the annual Rob Guest Endowment Gala Concert, with the most recent being Monday November 19 at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne. Hosted by Bert Newton, Lucy Durack and Rob Mills the night featured performances by some of Australia’s finest musical theatre stars, including the casts of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and South Pacific, Chloe Dallimore, David Harris, Michael Snell, Daniel Koek, Christie Whelan, Christopher Horsey, the Wicked company, Silvie Paladino, Lucy and Rob.
