Leonard Blavatnik’s Access Entertainment is to be the headline sponsor of The Stage Debut Awards for a second year.
The awards, which have run since 2017, celebrate emerging talent in theatre, from actors, writers and directors to designers and composers, all of whom have made their professional debuts in the past year.
This year, there are two new categories –one for best creative West End debut, which covers designers, directors, writers and composers, and a second for child performers.
Access Entertainment will be the headline sponsor for the 2019 awards, which take place on September 15 at the Brewery in London. Nominees will be announced on August 8.
