The Olivier Awards celebrate the brightest and best of London’s world-leading theatre industry and Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show, which is currently touring the UK, took home the award for Best Family Show in recognition of its four-week sell-out residency at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre in December 2022.
The Hey Duggee show was up against Blippi The Musical at Apollo Theatre, Midsummer Mechanicals at Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe and The Smartest Giant in Town at St Martin’s Theatre.
The full ceremony was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall on Magic Radio and highlights aired on ITV1 and ITVX. TikTok also hosted a live stream on the Green Carpet, which among others was walked by the Hey Duggee puppet as seen in Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show.
Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show will continue to tour venues in the UK until the end of August this year. The show brings to life the smash-hit Studio AKA production with BBC Studios Kids & Family and CBeebies through innovative puppetry and storytelling, featuring a dazzling light show and projection.
Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show is presented by BBC Studios’ licensing partners: the award-winning theatre producer Kenny Wax; and theatre and live entertainment promoters Cuffe and Taylor, in association with Live Nation.
