Cuffe and Taylor, BBC, and Kenny Wax launch Hey Duggee live theatre show

Live Nation promoter Cuffe and Taylor is joining forces with theatre producer Kenny Wax Family Entertainment and BBC Studios for a live touring theatre production of Hey Duggee.

Hey Duggee – the hit children’s TV show – is to tour the UK for the first time ever in a new interactive stage show.

Visiting 24 theatres with almost 100 dates, the tour marks the biggest ever theatre production of its kind for Live Nation in the UK.

Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show will tour the UK from December through to summer 2023 and includes a four-week residency at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall (London) at Christmas.

Cuffe and Taylor is no stranger to live theatre, presenting around 1,000 nights annually with wide-ranging sell-out tours from James Martin Live, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby and A Question of Sport Live to Lea Salonga – Dream Again, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Tour and the hugely successful tribute shows Tina – What’s Love Got To Do With It? and Whitney – Queen of the Night.

Ben Hatton, director of theatre touring at Cuffe and Taylor, said: “We are incredibly excited to be working with both Kenny Wax and BBC Studios to present Hey Duggee live for the first time ever.

“The TV show has proved to be an absolute phenomenon and we hope to enjoy the same success in theatres across the UK. This is a great relationship for us all and one that we look forward to developing further.”

Kenny Wax has firmly established his production company as a leading producer and general manager in the West End, regionally and around the world.

Wax said: “We are so thrilled to be working with Live Nation, Cuffe and Taylor, Studio AKA, and BBC Studios to create a brand new stage show with lots of surprises touring the country with a sit down month in London over Christmas. I can’t wait.”
