New Olivier Award for Musical Supervisors and Orchestrators

Musical supervisors and orchestrators will be honoured at next year's Olivier Awards in a brand new prize category which recognises outstanding achievement in music “bringing together potential nominations across the music fields including composition of original music for plays, orchestration and musical supervision/direction”.

Campaigner Mike Dixon (We Will Rock You and The Bodyguard)  said: “The most important aspect of this award is that finally the Oliviers are respecting the fact that music and musicians play a central role in musical theatre. After a couple of years campaigning for some recognition for musical supervisors and musical directors I am really pleased that from next year there is an award that recognises the huge contribution to the industry that all musicians make.”

Next year’s Olivier Awards will take place on April 13th at the Royal Opera House. The cut off for eligible shows is February 25th.
