The cast of SIX
The powerful quintet of cast members will soon tell the story of how they navigate the wicked clutches of Henry VIII in this smash-hit musical. Joining the principal line-up of the cast are, Baylie Carson (Jagged Little Pill) as Anne Boleyn and Koko Basigara (Les Misérables, Disney’s Beauty & the Beast) as Katherine Howard, Rhianne-Louise McCaulsky (Grease) as Catherine of Aragon, Monique Ashe-Palmer (Waitress) as Alternate Aragon/Cleves and Leah Vassell as Alternate Seymour/Parr. It is said that the cast has even swapped their stage shoes for their thinking-caps, having met to play immersive board games! They will join current cast members Claudia Kariuki, Dionne Ward-Anderson and Roxanne Couch as Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves and Catherine Parr respectively.
The story of SIX
Taking to the stage in all of their pop-perfection glory, the six wives will see who can out-sing each other by telling stories through their music. The songstresses will remix their last five hundred years of heartbreak and hell into 75 minutes of uplifting anthems, but who will emerge as the lead? It is the sell-out pop concert of a lifetime!
The creatives of SIX
SIX was co-written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss with Jamie Armitage as co-director with Moss. The production is choreographed by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille and features set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, sound design by Paul Gatehouse, lighting design by Tim Deiling, orchestrations by Tom Curran, musical supervision by Joe Beighton, and associate direction by Grace Taylor and Franny Anne Rafferty.
The history of SIX
Over time, SIX has cemented its legacy as a prodigy of musical theatre. Since debuting at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2017, the show has toured across the UK, Australia and New Zealand, with two concurrent productions travelling across North America. The show also continues to run on Broadway, where it has bagged 2 Tony Awards, 4 Drama Desk Awards and 3 Outer Critics Circle Awards.
