This Australian production played a record breaking 15-week run at Sydney Opera House during the summer where it became the longest running show ever at the iconic venue. Due to unprecedented popular demand, SIX will make a royal return to Sydney from 26 August. The Queens will then continue their reign in Perth from 24 November and in Brisbane at QPAC from 30 December. During 2022 SIX has further enjoyed imperial reigns with rapturous acclaim by both critics and audiences alike, in Canberra, Adelaide and currently in Melbourne. 

“We are overjoyed at the reaction the current SIX tour has had across Australia thrilling audiences in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide and Melbourne. This incredible musical is truly a global phenomenon and as we continue the sensation into Perth and Brisbane, these powerful and dynamic performers along with the Queendom, the legion of fans it has already amassed across Australia, are set to empower and inspire audiences the way only these Queens know how!”, said Louise Withers on behalf of the Australian producers. 

The witty, pop-fueled musical packed full of sass remixes the history of the six wives of Henry VIII – Britain’s notorious Tudor King – as they take to the microphone and reclaim their HERstories, once and for all. 

The incredible Queens reigning supreme on stage include Phoenix Jackson Mendoza playing the first wife, the sassy Catherine of Aragon. The rule-breaking second wife Anne Boleyn is played by Kala Gare with Loren Hunter in the role of the loyal third wife Jane Seymour. The independent Anna of Cleves is played by Kiana Daniele. Chelsea Dawson takes on the role of the playful fifth wife, Katherine Howard, and Vidya Makan plays the surviving wife, the empowering Catherine Parr.
