The full, original West End cast will make their triumphant, royal return after being named the Best Ensemble in a Play or Musical at the 2018 BroadwayWorld Awards:

Jarneia Richard-Noel (Catherine of Aragon) The Color Purple in Concert (Cadogan Hall).

Millie O’Connell (Anne Boleyn) Thoroughly Modern Millie (UK tour) and 42nd Street (was understudy Peggy Sawyer – Theatre Du Chatelet, Paris).

Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour) Sunday in the Park with George (Louise – Menier Chocolate Factory).

Alexia McIntosh (Anna of Cleves) Godiva Rocks (Rosa – Belgrade Theatre).

Aimie Atkinson (Katherine Howard) In The Heights (Daniela – Kings Cross Theatre) and Zorro the Musical (originating the lead role of Luisa – UK tour).

SIX marked the professional debuts of Maiya Quansah-Breed (Catherine Parr) and Grace Mouat (alternate Jane Seymour/Katherine Howard and Dance Captain), who both graduated from Guildford School of Acting last summer.

From January the cast will be joined by two additional alternates.

Courtney Stapleton (alternate Catherine of Aragon & Catherine Parr) Bat Out of Hell (Dance Captain – West End), Les Misérables (Cover Eponine – West End) and Mamma Mia! (Cover Ali – West End).

SIX – the concert-style show with a phenomenal all-female band: the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, these Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red!
