Atlantis Productions' Asian premiere of Disney's "The Little Mermaid," Philippine Educational Theater Association's screen-to-stage adaptation of "Bona," and Lunchbox Theatrical Productions' international touring production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" lead the 2012 BroadwayWorld (BWW) Philippines Awards with nine, five, and four nods respectively.

BWW Philipines Awards are theater fan choice awards, which garnered more than 4,000 nomination entries - whittled down to 125 finalists - last year.

The winners in 25 categories were chosen through online voting, whose results have been tabulated by BWW's main office in New York City.

An award ceremony in Manila will be held at the end of the month.
