EVITA music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice
Director – Neale Whitmore
Music Director – Shane Hurst
Choreographer – Kelly Holmes
Stage Manager – Katie Dedman Radke
Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatricalportrait as complex as the woman herself.
