Evita

5th-10 April 2013

Young Actors Theatre (YAT) is pleased to present the legendary musical EVITA. For one week in early April YAT will host this critically-acclaimed rock musical.

“It’s really thrilling for us to have a chance to work on this legendary and iconic musical,” says Andrew Harries, director and chief executive of the theatre. “It’s something I grew up with and have always loved but our young members (none of whom were born when the musical first came out!) are coming to the story and the music fresh and this should make for a surprising and dynamic version.”

The musical delves into the remarkable, controversial and true story of Eva Peron (1919-1952) who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the most famous political figures of the 20th century. Both adored and reviled, she died of cancer at the height of her powers aged just 33, leaving an entire nation mourning her.

This musical has been staged all over the world and in 1997 was made into a film starring Madonna and Antonia Banderas. It contains the hits Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What a Circus and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.

Now the talented young people of the Young Actors Theatre have reprised the production, creating a show you will not want to miss!
