2011 Olivier Awards


As 'Wicked' won the Audience Award for Most Popular Show at last years Oliviers they can not be nominated again for 2011. However what that does mean is that they get to present the award instead and that honour goes to our very own Rachel.

The show takes place at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Sunday 13 March 2011 starting at 5:30pm.

If like me you're not lucky enough to have tickets to this special event you can listen to it on Radio 2 or watch the whole event on your digital TV by using the BBC Red Button service on the night.

Showbiz stars who will be presenting awards include:

* Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, current stars on Frankenstein
* Anne-Marie Duff, star of the Old Vic’s Cause Celebre
* Elisabeth Moss (Peggy from Mad Men), currently appearing in The Children’s Hour at the Comedy Theatre
* Actor Rupert Everett
* The League of Gentlemen and the National’s Season’s Greetings star Mark Gatiss
* Amanda Holden from Shrek The Musical
* Elaine Paige
* Tamara Rojo, Royal Ballet star
* Star of The Wizard of Oz, Danielle Hope
* Wicked’s Rachel Tucker
* Actor Patrick Stewart

They will join already announced stars that include Lost star Matthew Fox and Olivia Williams, the star of In A Forest, Dark and Deep at the Vaudeville Theatre, and Alfie Boe, opera and musicals leading man, who will play Jean Valjean in the West End production of Les Miserables this summer.

If anyone is wanting to go I know someone who unfortunately cannot go anymore and is selling two tickets for £80 (incl a glass of champagne and a programme each)...let me know if interested!

Seems like every weekend, Rachel stars in an award ceremony as a recipient or a presenter.
I just adore her. Again, you guys are so lucky to be so nearby.
Hopefully the presentation will be streamed live online.

Isn't Louise presenting with Rachel? Are they performing, too?
Olivier producers would be foolish to pass by an opportunity for them to belt out a song or two!
