Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show wins at the Olivier Awards

Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show picked up Best Family Show at the Olivier Awards 2023 with Mastercard, which took place yesterday (Sunday 2 April) with a starry ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall.

The accolade was collected by the co-adaptors for Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show, Matthew Xia (The Wiz – Hope Mill Theatre, associate director Actors Touring Company) and Vikki Stone (#zoologicalsociety – Royal And Derngate, Romeo And Duet – ITV). Matthew also directs the theatre show and Vikki is musical supervisor.

The Olivier Awards celebrate the brightest and best of London’s world-leading theatre industry. Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show – which is currently touring the UK – took home the award in recognition of its four-week sell-out residency at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre in December 2022.

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 were also nominated in the same category.

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.
