The Stage Awards 2019
Theatre is not short of awards ceremonies. But most focus on the stars, the West End glitz, the people whose names are already up in lights. When we launched The Stage Awards, we wanted a ceremony that recognised the full scope of British theatre.
Since then, our winners have included major national and international organisations such as the National Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions, but also companies from across the British Isles, touring companies, fringe theatres located in back rooms above pubs, casting directors, stage managers, box office managers, a wardrobe manager… we believe in celebrating the whole of UK theatre.
The Stage Awards are presented in association with Integro Insurance Brokers Ltd.
Nominees for The Stage Awards 2019 were announced on December 13, 2018.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Bridge Theatre in January 2019.
