The original West End cast of the musical Six will return to the show for its encore engagement at London's Arts Theatre beginning in January 2019. The concert-style musical, which features an all-female band made up of the six wives of Henry VIII, was an initial success as a student production in Edinburgh before transferring to the West End in 2018.
Six is created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. The musical will play a limited run at Glasgow's Scottish Event Campus December 20–30, followed by a London run January 17–May 5, 2019.
Returning to the West End will be 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.
Grace Mouat will return as the alternate to Jane Seymour/Katherine Howard and dance captain. From January the cast will be joined by two additional alternates: Vicki Manser (alternate Anne Boleyn and Anna of Cleves) and Courtney Stapleton (alternate Catherine of Aragon and Catherine Parr).
Six is directed by Moss and Jamie Armitage. The musical features choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, sound design by Paul Gatehouse, musical orchestrations by Tom Curran, and musical supervision by Joe Beighton. Freya Sands is associate choreographer, Katy Richardson is musical director, and Arlene McNaught is associate musical director.
Six is produced by Kenny Wax, Global Musicals, and George Stiles. Visit Sixthemusical.com for more information.
