The 2018 recipient of the Bass Coast Community Foundation's Performance Awards has been selected, and ........ drum roll please ....... it's Finnan Donohue of Inverloch.
In 2018 Finnan will be embarking on the first year of a Creative Arts (Drama) course at Deakin University's Burwood Campus.
Finnan has been a regular cast member of Wonthaggi Theatrical Group productions since he first appeared on the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre stage in WTG's Oliver! in 2010. He was also a founding member of Newhaven College's Boys Vocal Group from 2013 until he completed Year 12 at the College in 2017.
The Foundation's Performance Award provides assistance to local students who take up tertiary education in a performance related discipline. All aspects of performance, for example drama, dance, music (instrumental and vocal) can be supported. The key aim of the program is to support those with the talent, drive and ambition to make a professional career in their chosen field.
The Foundation thanks the Robert Salzer Foundation for the support of the Performance Awards, and congratulates Finnan on his selection for the Award in 2018, wishing him all the best in his theatrical future.
Applications for the Foundation's 2018 Tertiary Support Program closed on Friday 26 January 2018.
