We are pleased to announce that Matthew Bourne's New Adventures has been awarded The Stage International Award in recognition of taking Sleeping Beauty to audiences across Asia in 2016!
Announcing the nominees, Alistair Smith, print editor of The Stage and chair of the judging panel, said: “Congratulations to all our brilliant winners. The Stage Awards are the only awards that celebrate theatre of all scales, from all four corners of the UK and across the globe."
In 2016 Sleeping Beauty toured to Seoul, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo and Shanghai, reaching an audience of more than 70,000. Many workshops and masterclasses were also delivered to a range of people and ages by Re:Bourne, the charitable arm of New Adventures.
The Stage Awards 2017 took place on January 27 at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
