Eva Peron used her smarts and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world – while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “High Flying, Adored.”

The cast consists of Antonette Knoedl as Eva Peron, Jonathan Valuckas as Juan Peron, Matt Sorensen as Che, Brendan Gotham as Augustin Magaldi, and Olivia Zeis as the Mistress. The ensemble features Robert Alden Bagg, Elizabeth Clark, Leslie Dame, Jessica Deeb, Dylan Duffy, Chandler Gach, Harper Hornaday, Jessica Kemp, Emily Madan, Sean Orman, Gabrielle Patnode, Teagan Plimpton and McCayla Quinn. The children’s choir features Ayla Buerkett, Christopher Byrne, Meghan Byrne, Grace Carlson, Jack Clark, Eleanor Crowley, Rosemary Crowley, John Holmlund, Will Holmlund, Forrest Monroe, Natalie Orman, Emma Peer, Robyn Rutgers, Katie Samperi, Sarah Samperi, Andrew Scanio, Parker Scanio, Griffin Smith and Ruby Smith
