Des Moines Civic Center | Des Moines, Iowa
The depths of emotion in Musicals can be experienced this February in Des Moines, Iowa when Six the Musical comes to perform at the Des Moines Civic Center stage on Thursday, Thursday 9th February 2023. The premise is uniquely simple. Six sees the wives of Henry VIII compete for the saddest tale. Anne Boleyn, played perfectly by the boisterous Millie O’Connell, insists that getting beheaded is the ultimate end to a difficult existence, something perhaps only the downtrodden and equally headless Catherine Howard (Aimie Atkinson) could match. Yet each of the title’s six has their own story of woe, and more importantly, their own sense of empowerment to deliver. Don’t miss out on this unique event! Click the Buy Tickets button below.
The individual production combines pop and hip-hop style with the tale of the six ill-fated wives of King Henry VIII. You all know the refrain, “Divorced, Beheaded, Died…” and so on, but in this re-telling we actually get to learn about the personalities behind the failed marriages. The music of Six is inspired by female pop icons including Ariana Grande, Adele, Rihanna, and Beyonce. Each of the wives each portray a powerful pop-star, and together they form the most royal of girl-groups…well, if those had existed in the 1500s! And what’s more, come down to the world famous Des Moines Civic Center in Des Moines for an unforgettable night of elite entertainment!
