It has been announced that ITV will broadcast a special Olivier Awards with Mastercard programme on Sunday 5 April at 10.15pm. The programme is in place of the 2020 Royal Albert Hall awards show which was postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The hour-long ‘Olivier Awards – Greatest Moments’ programme will be hosted by Jason Manford, and will take a look back on Olivier Awards ceremonies from the past ten years. It will include archive footage of performances and speeches, plus a celebration of some of the many Olivier Award-winning productions – including Dreamgirls, Hamilton, The Book Of Mormon, Disney’s The Lion King and the RSC’s Matilda The Musical.
The official radio partner of the Olivier Awrds, Magic Radio, will also broadcast a special programme from 6pm to 8pm on the same day. This will compliment the ITV programme, celebrating the best Olivier Awards moments, alongside a weekend of shows on Magic’s new musical theatre station Magic at the Musicals.
