Six the Musical Bristol Hippodrome Casting Announced

It’s not an overreaction to describe Six as a ‘musical phenomenon’. The show, which tells the story of the six wives of Henry VIII, established a solid fan-base when it first opened in 2017 at the Edinburgh Festival. Since then, it’s played on Broadway, been to Sydney, New Zealand and had ongoing success in London runs.

Its touring plans like all touring theatre has been hit by Covid, but for those who’ve held those tickets a very long time, the show will finally come to the Bristol Hippodrome from the 20 – 24 September 2022.

The musical, described as a celebration of Girl Power, was written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. It tells the individual stories of Henry’s wives, each taking to the mic with their version of events.

The current company will be performing until Sunday 06 March 2022, with the new cast taking over from Tuesday 08 March at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

The new touring Queens will be played by Chlöe Hart, Jennifer Caldwell, Casey Al-Shaqsy, Aiesha Pease, Jaina Brock-Patel and Alana M Robinson.
