SIX the musical will head to the Opera House Blackpool from July 7–10 as part of a major UK tour. The sell-out Tudor take-off remixes 500 years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.

Michael Williams, Winter Gardens Blackpool managing director, said, “the show has wowed audiences across the globe and gained a loyal and devoted fan base, it’s a fantastic addition to our reopening line-up which is fast becoming an exciting mix of events.”

Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, SIX is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, featuring choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, sound design by Paul Gatehouse, lighting design by Tim Deiling, orchestrations by Tom Curran with music supervision and vocal arrangements by Joe Beighton.

It’s produced by Kenny Wax, Wendy & Andy Barnes and George Stiles.
