Seeking:Seeking: Actors for upcoming production of SIX at the Broadway Playhouse BREAKDOWN: Seeking sensational triple threat performers to portray the SIX wives of Henry VIII as they reunite to tell their stories via a pop concert. Must have incredible pop voices, strong dance skills, great comedic instincts, and the ability to interact with an audience well. Submissions of all ethnicities from all self- identifying female and non-binary performers encouraged for all roles: CATHERINE OF ARAGON [20' -30's] The Queen who lasted the longest, and (in her opinion) was the strongest. As far as she is concerned, she was the only rightful Queen of England and stayed that way until the end of her life. This fiery Spanish Queen was fierce, firm, and took no BS from anyone - least of all her troublesome husband. Pop inspiration: Beyonce, J-Lo, Shakira. ANNE BOLEYN [20' -30's] Depicted most often as a "deceitful temptress" by historians and storytellers alike, Henry's second wife has been the subject of the most speculation and mythologizing. Our Anne, however, playfully defies these aspersions on her character. She is a bubbly, fun-loving gal who only wanted to snog a sexy guy and then suddenly the entire religiopolitical landscape of England is in turmoil and everyone's losing their heads over it. Pop inspiration: Lily Allen, Kate Nash, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne. JANE SEYMOUR[20' -30's] The Queen who finally succeeded in producing an heir to the Tudor dynasty and, conveniently enough, she is also the one who Henry claimed was the only wife he 'truly loved'. But although Jane might at first seem a bit of a pushover - lovably earnest, always a beat behind the rest, and with a real zeal for bad jokes - she's steadfast, loving, and deep down as fierce as any other Queen. Pop inspiration: Adele, Emeli Sande, Sia. ANNA OF CLEVES[20' -30's] Exuberant, eccentric, and effortlessly cool, Anna of Cleves is the Queen who secretly won history. At age twenty-four she found herself cast aside by the ageing King and was forced to spend the rest of her life living in an enormous palace, without a single man around to tell her how to spend her copious dollar. Basically, she lives her best like 24/7 and could not be happier she came out of her short-lived relationship with Henry so successfully. Pop inspiration: Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Charli XCX. KATHERINE HOWARD[20' -30's] The youngest Queen, and perhaps the one with the most tragic story. Baby-faced but sharp tongued, she knows how to get ahead. She's funny, charismatic, and enchanting. But beneath the surface of her 'flirtatious' exterior lies a complex young woman who’s been chewed up and spat out by the man’s world she was forced to inhabit. Pop inspiration: Ariana Grande, Britney. CATHERINE PARR[20' -30's] Probably history's most overlooked, undersold Tudor Queen. But a life of hardship and heartbreak shaped her into a truly remarkable person. A prolific author and proto- feminist, she championed female independence and stood up to the king for what she believed in - no matter the danger. She is smart, soulful, and warm - with a story that goes far beyond her status as simply 'the survivor'. Pop inspiration: Alicia Keys, Emeli Sande, Jorja Smith.
