Listen up, let me tell you a story! The five-time Olivier Award nominated musical Six is anointing some new Queens later this year. And as if that’s not a royal enough treat, the show’s also extended in the West End until Sunday 5 July.

As a couple of the original Six cast – Millie O’Connell and Maiya Quansah-Breed – depart for productions new, Courtney Bowman (who played Fatimah in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) and Danielle Steers (Zahara in Bat Out Of Hell) will take over as Anne Boleyn and Catherine Parr respectively from Tuesday 15 October.

They’ll join Six cast members Jarneia Richard-Noel (Catherine of Aragon), Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour), Alexia McIntosh (Anna of Cleves) and Aimie Atkinson (Katherine Howard), who are staying with the production.

It has also been announced that swings and alternates Grace Mouat, Vicki Manser and Courtney Stapleton will abdicate their roles at a date to be confirmed. From next month, Colette Guitart will join the company as a Dance Captain/Understudy, and Shekinah Macfarlane will join as Alternate Catherine of Aragon and Anna of Cleves until October.

Further alternate casting is due to be announced at a later date. And there’s also a regal treat in store for Six fans, as 85,000 more tickets go on sale for the show today for a six-month extension at the Arts Theatre.

Six is Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ breakout musical sensation, telling the stories of Henry VIII’s Six wives from their perspectives. The show has everyone positively losing their heads, as it received five Olivier nominations – including Best New Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design – and has gone global, being performed in the West End, across the UK on tour, and in Chicago. Discussions are underway for runs in Canada, Japan, Australia, Sotuh Korea and China.

So everybody, “get in reFORMATION” – don’t miss the new Six cast in action! Sorry not sorry…

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
