Six announces new West End cast as it extends to July 2020
Six has announced a new cast of Queens for London’s West End.
The hit production has also extended booking to July 2020 at the Arts Theatre, with seats on sale now.
Four new cast members have been confirmed with Courtney Bowman taking over from Millie O’Connell in the role of Anne Boleyn and Danielle Steers replacing Maiya Quansah-Breed as Catherine Parr.
In addition, Collette Guitart will join as dance captain/understudy with Shekinah Macfarlane, Cherelle Jay, Zara MacIntosh and Hana Stewart as alternates, replacing Grace Mouat, Courtney Stapleton and Vicki Manser.
O’Connell and Quansah Breed’s final performances will be Sunday, 13 October before Steers and Bowman take over from Tuesday 15 October.
Final performance dates for Mouat, Stapleton and Manser are to be confirmed.
With a powerhouse pop score by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, Six turns Tudor queens into pop princesses as 500 years of historical heartbreak becomes an hour of 21st century sass.
Thanks to word of mouth, it’s grown since its world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017 to its current critically acclaimed run in the West End.
Alongside the London production, a Six The Musical UK tour will begin in October in Guildford, the 2019/2020 UK tour of Six will then head to cities including Malvern, Glasgow, Kingston, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Salford, Edinburgh, Bath, Southampton and many more.
The show is also currently being staged in North America, with a Broadway transfer recently announced for 2020.
