The world famous stage musical ‘Six’ is coming to Salford for an extended stay, with plenty of dates for people to get a ticket to.
The show is on a UK tour, and is coming to the North West for a run of shows lasting almost two weeks.
Here’s what you need to know about the show, when it is in Salford, and what theatre goers can expect.

What is the show about?
‘Six’ is a musical which gives a voice to the six wives of King Henry VIII as they discuss who was made to suffer the most beauce of their husband.
The show is provided in the form of a pop concert, with each wife making her case through song.
They six are battling to see who suffered the most and who should, as a result, be the lead singer of the group.
The official website of the show gives the best summary of the show, and what people can expect.
The site reads: “Multi award-winning, with a spectacularly successful sound-track storming charts across the globe, this sell-out Tudor take-off has ‘an incredibly strong and powerful message. Boundary-pushing, genre-redefining’ (The Australian) and is ‘pure entertainment’ (The New York Times).
“From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.
“These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.
“Think you know the rhyme, think again…”

From Manchester Piccadilly, the Blue Line tram runs every 12 minutes towards Salford Quays and the journey takes just under 30 minutes.
