Fans of Billy Elliot – The Musical, Jersey Boys, Les Miserables and Wicked can vote for their favourite London musical for the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Olivier Audience award.

The prestigious Laurence Olivier Awards, which honour the best theatre across the country, takes place on April 15 and fans can nominate their favourite show for the Radio 2 audience award.

This category is the only one that is voted for by the theatre-going public and the productions are pulling out all the stops to take home the honour.

The full London cast of Les Miserables has created a video to rally for votes.

The video features the cast in full costume on stage at the Queen’s Theatre; including Ramin Karimloo (Jean Valjean), Hadley Fraser (Javert), Caroline Sheen (Fantine), Alexia Khadime (Eponine), Lisa Anne Wood (Cosette), Liam Tamne (Enjolras) and Craig Mather (Marius).

Last year the winner of the award was We Will Rock You.
