A note on casting from the creators of SIX the Musical: 

At its heart, SIX is about celebrating the talent and individuality of the women and non-binary people onstage. The Queens should therefore be played by cis women, trans women, trans people, and people who exist beyond the gender binary in any capacity, who feel on a personal level that this is their story to tell. 

 

Youth Performance Company is dedicated to nurturing an inclusive environment that values diverse perspectives, encourages open and honest dialogue, and actively engages all individuals in our pursuit of excellence in the realms of art and education. We make this commitment with the purpose of creating a secure and welcoming space that embraces and celebrates everyone.
