“Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived”: everyone knows the story of Henry VII’s wives - Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr- but have we heard their stories? In this energetic and dazzling pop musical, Henry VII’s six wives take the mic and tell their stories through spine tingling power-ballads, catchy anthems and techno tunes which will move your feet. A production which (literally) screams girl power, you will leave the theatre feeling inspired and empowered!
Originally showing at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2017, Six the Musical has exploded into the theatrical arena after moving to the West End, touring the UK, presenting internationally and being nominated for five Olivier Awards. Produced by friends Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, this unique histo-remixed pop-concert musical is the hottest show right now- join the frenzy and see what it’s all about!
Six the Musical running time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Six the Musical age recommendation: 10+
Given that most of Henry VII’s wives met a dreadful fate, the main premise of Six the Musical is centered around who had the worst time as Henry VII’s wife. However, their reason for deciding this has a 21st century twist; the ladies are forming a pop group and competing for the title as lead singer. To decide who this should be, the Queens tell their tales of woe through spectacular pop music in their own individual style- now it is their time to shine!
While Six the Musical is a West End show, it is also an empowering pop concert; the incredible variety of music and flawless performances create a truly unique and uplifting theatrical experience!
The Arts Theatre has won Best Theatrical Venue in the 2016 Broadway World Awards and as an independent commercial theatre, it hosts a wide variety of entertainment of all genres.
