Children’s TV show, “Hey Duggee,” is to tour the U.K. for the first time in a new interactive stage show. Visiting 24 theaters with almost 100 dates, the tour marks the biggest theater production of its kind for Live Nation in the U.K. 

“We are incredibly excited to be working with both Kenny Wax and BBC Studios to present ‘Hey Duggee’ live for the first time ever,” says Ben Hatton, director, theater touring, Cuffe and Taylor. “The TV show has proved to be an absolute phenomenon and we hope to enjoy the same success in theaters across the U.K. This is a great relationship for us all and one that we look forward to developing further.” 

Adapted from the TV series, “Hey Duggee,” The Live Theater Show will tour the U.K. from this December through summer 2023 and includes a four-week residency at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall (London) this Christmas season. 

“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,” says Kenny Wax, theater producer. “I can't wait.” 

“Hey Duggee” The Live Theater Show will see Duggee, The Squirrels and friends brought to life through puppetry and storytelling.
