SIX the Musical Announces Return Australian Tour

The captivating global sensation, SIX the Musical, continues to break records and enchant audiences worldwide, marking its triumphant return to Australia with an eagerly anticipated tour. This innovative musical, lauded for its empowering narrative and electrifying performances, has set the stage for its next act in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, following its immense success on previous Australian shores as well as globally.

SIX narrates the compelling tales of King Henry VIII’s six wives, transforming them from historical figures overshadowed by their infamous husband to vibrant, powerful pop icons who command the stage with their stories. This retelling is not just a musical experience but a reclamation of narrative, offering a modern, pop-inspired soundtrack that resonates with audiences across the board. Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’s brainchild has not only redefined musical theatre’s boundaries but has also struck a chord with people of all ages, empowering them through the extraordinary lives of Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr.

What sets SIX apart is its ability to connect past and present, weaving historical narrative with contemporary issues and sounds, making it a seminal work that not only entertains but inspires. Its digital community, the ‘Queendom,’ epitomizes this connection, showcasing a tapestry of fan art, cover performances, and discussions that celebrate the show’s themes of empowerment and resilience.

Behind this powerhouse production are Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who not only penned its book, lyrics, and music but also direct and choreograph, alongside a talented creative team. Produced in Australia by Louise Withers, Michael Coppel, and Linda Bewick, SIX is poised to continue its record-breaking journey, offering an electrifying 80 minutes of performance that challenges conventions and celebrates the spirit of rebellion and sisterhood.

For those eager to witness this revolutionary musical spectacle, tickets are now available for its Australian tour, starting in Melbourne at the Comedy Theatre from August 2024, moving to the Theatre Royal Sydney in October 2024, and concluding at QPAC’s Playhouse in Brisbane from January 2025.
