CBeebies series ‘Hey Duggee’ is hitting the stage in Dublin this summer

The show is coming to Dublin in June.

Smash hit CBeebies series Hey Duggee is officially hitting the Irish stage this summer.

The Olivier Award-winning all-new interactive stage show is set to tour the UK and Ireland, making a pitstop in Dublin in June.

Duggee, the Squirrels and some of their friends will star in the musical Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show. The show was awarded ‘Best Family Show’ at this year’s Olivier Awards.

Full of fun, laughs and a lot of dancing, the show is heading to Dublin’s 3Olympia from June 15th to 18th.

This is the first ever stage version of the show and sees Duggee and friends coming to life. It features puppetry and storytelling suitable for the whole family.

Tickets are available now at and direct from the 3Olympia Theatre, as well as on Ticketmaster. Tickets start at €21.50.

Speaking about the new show, director Matthew Xia said:

“My daughter was born in 2014, the same year Hey Duggee started, so we’ve really grown up with the TV series, and it’s been an absolute treat to create this new stage show.

“Without any spoilers, the Squirrels have never been to a show before, and they set out to learn about all the things that go into making a show and earn the relevant badges, with some of our favourite Hey Duggee characters helping them along the way.

“And the children and families in the audience are very much part of the Squirrel gang with some important jobs to do!”

While musical supervisor and arranger Vikki Stone said: “Hey Duggee is such a special TV series in the realm of co-viewing, where adults are watching it with their children, not just putting it on to entertain them while they’re doing something else. And it is brilliant to see families come together in theatres on the tour to experience that same magic live on stage – and in many cases it’s the children’s first theatre experience”.
