From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the SIX wives of Henry VIII are at the Arts Theatre in August – after a short tour – to take the mic to tell their tale and we know which actresses are giving it plenty of sisterly sass-itude...

SIX returns to London's Arts Theatre, where it had five sell-out preview performances earlier this year, for a limited season from 30 August to 23 September 2018.

For the new run, Jarneia Richard-Noel (The Color Purple in Concert at Cadogan Hall) plays Catherine Of Aragon; Millie O’Connell (UK tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie, understudy Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street, Theatre Du Chatelet, Paris); Natalie Paris (Louise in Sunday in the Park with George at the Menier Chocolate Factory) plays Jane Seymour; Alexia McIntosh (Rosa in Godiva Rocks at Belgrade Theatre) plays Anna Of Cleves; Aimie Atkinson (Daniela in In The Heights at King’s Cross Theatre, originated the lead role of Luisa in Zorro the Musical –UK tour) plays Katherine Howard; and Maiya Quansah-Breed (just graduated from Guildford School of Acting) plays Catherine Parr. Completing the cast, Grace Mouat, who has also just graduated from GSA, is swing/dance captain.

Prior to the West End run, Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ SIX will visit Norwich Playhouse (11-15 July), Cambridge Arts Theatre (17-21 July) and will return to the Edinburgh Fringe (main Underbelly purple cow in George Square from 1-27 August).

SIX is a co-production between Kenny Wax and Global Musicals. Wendy Barnes of Global Musicals said:

“Kenny, Andy and I saw the previous production independently of each other but we were all immediately blown away by the funny, relevant humour and infectious score that these two young talents had created.”

SIX is directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage with choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille. Further UK tour dates are to be announced.
