Nominations phase closes for 2013 Whatsonstage.com AwardsDate: 30 November 2012
The nominations phase of the 2013 Whatsonstage.com Awards - the only major theatre prize to be decided entirely by the theatregoing public - is now closed. Over 50,000 nominations were submitted across the 27 categories, marking a new milestone for the Awards as they enter their 13th year.
Shortlists will be unveiled at a glittering industry-only Awards Launch party next Friday (7 December 2012) at the West End's Cafe de Paris, with guest presenters including Alistair McGowan, Tamzin Outhwaite, Mark Gatiss, Belinda Lang and Stephen Tompkinson.
Voting for the winners commences immediately after the Launch Party.
Final results are announced during the star-studded Awards Concert, which takes place on Sunday 17 February 2013 at the Palace Theatre, hosted by Mel Giedroyc and Rufus Hound.
The evening includes a two-and-a-half hour Concert performed by numerous nominees and other top West End stars as well as numbers from some of the year's biggest musicals - and of course, your big-name winners collecting their trophies to your cheers.
Both events are held in aid of this year’s adopted charity, Interact (part of Stagecoach Charitable Trust), which provides disabled and disadvantaged children and young people with real opportunities to develop valuable skills for life through drama, movement and music workshops.
