The smash hit production of Six has started its limited run at Hampton Court Palace and to celebrate here are some photos of the first night.
This production, staged in partnership with HEVENING istoric Royal Palaces – the independent charity which cares for Hampton Court Palace – saw the global musical phenomenon staged outdoors for the first time, in front of an audience of over 3,000.
SIX Live at Hampton Court Palace reunited the original West End line-up of Olivier Award nominated cast members; Jarnéia Richard-Noel (Catherine of Aragon), Millie O’Connell (Anne Boleyn), Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour), Alexia McIntosh (Anna of Cleves), Aimie Atkinson (Katherine Howard) and Maiya Quansah-Breed (Catherine Parr).
The production was co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, with choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, musical supervision by Joe Beighton and costumes by Gabriella Slade based on the original staging with Scenic Design by Emma Bailey, Lighting Design by Tim Deiling, Sound Design by Paul Gatehouse and Orchestrations by Tom Curran.
Liz Young, Head of Events at Historic Royal Palaces, said: “Bringing the phenomenon that is SIX to Hampton Court Palace has been a long-term aspiration, and we’re delighted that this summer loyal fans and newcomers alike will get the chance to experience the award-winning show in the very place where the lives, loves and legacies of these legendary Queens live on.”
SIX has become a global phenomenon since its debut as a student production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017. Since then, and following the reopening of theatres across the world, performances have resumed in London’s West End, on Broadway and in Sydney (as part of an Australia and New Zealand Tour), with a brand-new production opening in Chicago later this month, and a second North American Tour due to open in July.
Six will be filmed live from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End on 1 July 2022.
Six is currently booking until 2 April 2023 at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End.
