Hit children’s show Hey Duggee is to tour the UK for the first time ever in a vibrant and interactive stage show and is coming to Newcastle Theatre Royal in May 2023.
Duggee, The Squirrels and some of their friends will come together for Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show, a brand new play packed with non-stop fun, laughs, singing and dancing.
The smash hit CBeebies series is brought to life through innovative puppetry and storytelling in this new live show, making it an ideal first theatre experience for younger audiences.
Hey Duggee was the most streamed children’s show on BBC iPlayer in 2021 and is popular among both children and parents; with fans young and old, up and down the country now able to join the much-loved character on its first ever theatre tour.
Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show is presented by award-winning theatre producer Kenny Wax and theatre and live entertainment promoters Cuffe and Taylor in association with Live Nation.

Ben Hatton, director of theatre touring for Cuffe and Taylor, added: “This is an incredibly exciting tour. Hey Duggee is quite simply a phenomenon and has taken the world of children’s entertainment by storm. We look forward to Duggee and his friends filling theatres around the UK.”
Mat Way, Global Director of Live Entertainment, Gaming and Interactive at BBC Studios, said: “Studio AKA’s Hey Duggee is such a fun and iconic show and we can’t wait to bring the humour and adventures to life for families all around the country. We’re delighted to be working with Kenny Wax and Cuffe and Taylor to introduce young people to the wonders of the theatre.”
