The award is part of The Stage Debut Awards, in association with Access Entertainment, which celebrate emerging talent in the theatre industry.
It is given to an actor or creative team member who has made their West End debut during the past year, and is the only category in The Stage Debut Awards to be decided by public vote.
Nathanael Campbell is nominated for Come from Away, with Saffron Coomber up for Emilia. Sarah Gordy has received a nod for Jellyfish, at the National Theatre, with Ryan Hutton nominated for Only Fools and Horses the Musical.
The community cast of the National Theatre’s production of Pericles is also nominated.
Voting is open until September 8 and the winners of The Stage Debut Awards will all be announced at a ceremony in London on September 15.
