Anne BoleyN - English Touring Theatre's presentation of the Shakespeare's Globe production
THE KING AND I - Music and Lyrics with Curve Theatre, Leicester
REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL - a Graeae and New Wolsey Theatre production

The public vote will be launched shortly by the Awards Media Partner, The Stage.

The Theatre Awards UK 2012 will be presented at a lunchtime ceremony on Sunday 28 October 2012 at the Guildhall, a magnificent medieval Grade 1 listed landmark situated in the City of London.

Along with The Stage, five major organisations involved in theatre across the UK are providing the financial support to present and develop the Theatre Awards UK in 2012: Harbottle & Lewis, John Good Holbrook, Theatre Tokens, W&P Longreach and White Light.
