6 Dead Queens and an Inflatable Henry
Audition time
Tuesday, 29 October, 7.30pm
Rugby Theatre Central Hall
Show dates
17 - 21 Mar
Show dates

A bawdy Tudor romp with music based loosely on the six wives of Henry VIII.

A complete ensemble piece. Six actors will be required to hold a tune and play a musical instrument even at a fairly basic level. They will also require a reasonable level of physical fitness.

This show affords 6 actors huge opportunities to exercise their comedic gifts and the more fun they are having on stage will generate to their audience

Rehearsals will start early in the New Year three times a week. All cast will be required at all rehearsals (allowing for minor flexibility).


Option 1
Six women, age and size irrelevant. The part of Catherine Howard to be played by a younger actress.

Option 2
Five women, with one man playing the part of Anne of Cleves. Physically more imposing than the women and be able to look reasonably feminine.

This will depend on who turns up!!

Audition parts can be downloaded opposite.

This is a generic audition piece

This is firmly aimed at Anne of Cleves. The last speech for her will be a song so it would need to be spoken in rhyme with a rhythm of the auditionee's choosing
