The Stage Awards

The Stage Awards are the highest profile awards celebrating theatre across the whole of the UK and beyond.

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.
