OPEN CALL FOR SIX THE MUSICAL FRIDAY 28th FEBRUARY 2020

OPEN CALL FOR SIX THE MUSICAL - ARTS THEATRE, LONDON & UK TOUR --​
FRIDAY 28th FEBRUARY 2020

Sign-In 9.30am PINEAPPLE DANCE STUDIOS

7 Langley St, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9JA

You should be available to stay until 6pm as needed

DIVORCED. BEHEADED. LIVE IN CONCERT.

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take the mic to tell their tale, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude.

Six is now recasting for its open-ended run at The Arts Theatre, London and for its sell-out UK tour.

Sensational singer/actor/dancers required to perform the SIX wives of Henry VIII as they reunite to tell their stories in the form of a pop concert. Must have great contemporary pop voices, good comedic instincts, and be able to interact with an audience well. Gigging experience is a plus.

We welcome and encourage applications from all self-identifying female and non-binary performers, as long as they are comfortable playing female roles. We are looking to cast the most exceptionally talented group of people, regardless of size/shape/ethnicity etc.

Please note we are also looking for offstage swings/alternates for both productions. All swings and alternates will be expected to to learn all six tracks and be able to cover all roles within the show as required.
