Evita tells the story of Eva Peron who becomes the first lady of Argentina. With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, this well known show was the Easter Muscial from RMDS in 2019.
Taking the lead of Eva Peron, the actress who becomes Argentina’s First Lady, is Stephanie Jones, Mike Leggett plays Juan Perón who was elected President of Argentina in 1946 and Duncan Reid plays Ché the narrator of this real life story.
Matt Elward plays the tango singer that Eva meets at the beginning of her career and Gina Elward plays Peron’s mistress, who is quickly dismissed by Eva after she meets Peron at a charity concert.
With a host of well known songs including Oh What a Circus, On this Night of a Thousand Stars, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, Don’t Cry for Me Argentina and You Must Love Me, RMDS’ production of Evita was an almost complete sell out at Ringwood School Theatre in April 2019.
