Full casting has been confirmed for the upcoming West End run of the musical SIX, opening at London’s Arts Theatre in January.
The original West End cast, who appeared at the same theatre in 2018, return for the new run. The cast features Jarneia Richard-Noel as Catherine of Aragon, Millie O’Connell as Anne Boleyn, Natalie Paris as Jane Seymour, Alexia McIntosh as Anna of Cleves, Aimie Atkinson as Katherine Howard, and Maiya Quansah-Breed as Catherine Parr. Original cast member Grace Mouat joins Vicki Manser and Courtney Stapleton (both currently appearing in BAT OUT OF HELL) as alternates.
SIX, written by recent Cambridge University graduates Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, is a concert-style show featuring the six wives of Henry VIII. The show fuses modern pop and hip hop music to remix the story of historical heart break to 21st century girl power. The show premiered as a student production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017 before returning the following year as one of the main shows. From this, SIX transferred to the West End for a strictly limited run earlier this year and has since embarked on a UK tour. The upcoming Arts Theatre runs marks the return of the production to London, this time in an open-ended run.
SIX is directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage. It features choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set by Emma Bailey, costumes by Gabriella Slade, lighting by Tim Deiling, sound by Paul Gatehouse and orchestrations by Tom Curran. The West End return is produced by Kenny Wax, Global Musicals and George Stiles.
SIX opens at London’s Arts Theatre from 16th January and is currently booking until 5th May. Tickets are on sale.
