The upcoming U.K. tour of Six has assembled its group of royals who will take center stage in the traveling production.

The company will feature Lauren Drew (Donmar's Sweet Charity) as Catherine of Aragon, Maddison Bulleyment (Menier Chocolate Factory's The Bridges of Madison County) as Anne Boleyn, Lauren Byrne (Beautiful U.K. tour) as Jane Seymour, Shekinah McFarlane as Anna of Cleves, Jodie Steele (Heathers) as Katherine Howard, and Athene Collins as Catherine Parr, with alternates Harriet Watson, Cassandra Lee, and Jennifer Caldwell.

The Olivier-nominated show, penned by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss (who directs with Jaime Armitage), puts the six wives of Henry VIII in the spotlight, offering them the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—set to a pop score. The tour will launch October 24 in Millbrook, Buildford, with additional stops including Malvern, Glasgow, Oxford, Chichester, Edinburgh, Bath, Leicester, and Leeds.
