From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.
It’s all change at the palace as for the first time in ‘SIX’ her-story there is going to be a completely new cast of West End Queens, alternates and swings.
From 16 November 2021 the cast will include Amy Di Bartolomeo, Amanda Lindgren, Claudia Kariuki, Dionne Ward-Anderson, Tsemaye Bob-Egbe and Meesha Turner at the Vaudeville Theatre.
They are joined by Paisley Billings, Danielle Rose, and Roxanne Couch as Alternates, Rachel Rawlinson as Swing and Esme Rothero as Swing and Dance Captain.
The current West End Queens continue to reign at the Vaudeville and will play their final two shows on Sunday 14 November 2021.
Amy Di Bartolome (Catherine of Aragon) made her professional debut in ‘Starlight Express’ in Germany, toured the UK in ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’ and made her West End debut as ‘Leibeswoosh’ in ‘Bat Out of Hell’.
Amanda Lindgren (Anne Bolyen) hails from Sweden, was recently in ‘South Pacific’ at Chichester Festival Theatre, and has toured the UK and internationally in both ‘Miss Saigon’ and ‘The King and I’.
Claudia Kariuki (Jane Seymour) made her professional debut as Sarah in ‘Ragtime’ at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. Her West End credits include ‘School of Rock’ and ‘Wicked’. She played one of the Divas in the recent ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’ UK Tour.
Dionne Ward-Anderson (Anna of Cleves) was in ‘Footloose’ (UK Tour) and is making her West End debut.
Tsemaye Bob-Egbe (Katherine Howard) was the alternate Tina in the original West End cast of ‘Tina: The Tina Turner Story’, and Janelle Woods in ‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’, and Leading Player in ‘Pippin’ (Garden Theatre).
Meesha Turner (Catherine Parr) is a recent graduate of the Royal Academy of Music making her professional and West End debut.
Paisley Billings (alternate Catherine of Aragon & Anna of Cleves) made her West End debut aged 11 as Young Nala in ‘The Lion King’. She was Karissa in ’On the Edge’ on C4.
Roxanne Couch (alternate Jane Seymour & Katherine Parr) appeared in the West End concert ‘I Could Use a Drink’ and ‘In Pieces’ at the Turbine Theatre.

Electrifying musical phenomenon SIX by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss is to hold its first sing-along performance in its ‘forever home’ in the West End at the Vaudeville Theatre at 7pm on Sunday 23 January, 2022. Tickets on sale now at www.sixthemusical.com
For many of SIX’s enthusiastic fanbase, the temptation to join in with the show’s catchy hits like Catherine of Aragon’s ‘NO WAY’, Anna of Cleves’ ‘GET DOWN’, and the anthems ‘EX-WIVES’ and ‘SIX’ can be almost unbearable. Now, for the first time in two years, audience members will be able to sing their hearts out to their favourite songs along with the cast, and without fear of upsetting the theatre noise police.
As with previous SIX sing-along shows, the audience are being invited to come dressed as their favourite Tudor pop star from the show, or just dress to impress and one audience member will be crowned ‘Queen for the Night’ and receive a unique Singalong SIX poster signed by the cast from that night’s show.
A Relaxed Performance will be held on 9 January 2022.
