BREAKDOWN

EVITA
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
English Run: Oct. 25 – Nov 26, 2017
Spanish Run: Nov. 30 – Dec. 17, 2017
Director: David Arisco
Musical Director: TBD
NOTE: ALL ENSEMBLE MUST BE BI-LINGUAL. MISTRESS and MAGALDI are included in the ENSEMBLE. EVITA, CHE and PERON may be double cast from the ENSEMBLE for the Spanish Run.
EVITA:
(Female) Actor plays the character at ages 18 to 33. Must project both a toughness and charisma. Evita is a beautiful, ambitious and power-seeking woman, who rises to become the spiritual leader of Argentina by the age of 26. She is also a woman of few options, who uses her sexuality to build power. The actor playing this role must be a trained vocalist with strong vocal stamina and excellent control. A legit Mezzo with a clear, strong mix that can belt to a high G and sing to a low E (below middle C). Must be a passionate and strong actor who can move well.
CHE:
(Male, 18-35) This character is dashing, impulsive, jealous, and manipulative. Che is a political activist and the narrator of the show, a radical who isn’t reluctant to ask tough questions and demand answers. An actor/singer that must move very well with a high, rock tenor voice that can sing a low A to high B, falsetto to high F.
PERON:
(Male, 30-50) An officer in the Argentinean army who rises to become the Argentine President. He is a man who is dignified, charming, and authoritative. A strong actor and singer who can play character/leading man. Vocal bass/baritone to high F.
MISTRESS:
(Female, 15-20) A very beautiful, fragile, vulnerable, innocent young girl who plays Juan Peron’s teenaged Mistress. She is “dismissed” out of Peron’s life by his future wife, Eva. The Mistress ponders the rejection during her song, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall.” She will also double as an ensemble member. Must be able to move well and sing a low A to a high E.
MAGALDI:
(Male, 30 – 40) A tango singer with whom Eva has her first love affair. A charming loser – never quite made it. Has the first number in the show, “On This Night of a Thousand Stars” and sets up the world in which Eva exists and establishes a Latin flavor to the piece, which is essential. He will double as an ensemble member. A Latin American “personality” type and feel that needs to be bigger than life, but real at the same time. Sings high tenor High G.
ENSEMBLE:
Seeking a broad range of males and females of all ethnicities from late teens to 70s. Excellent singing voices in all ranges and who are strong dancers to play soldiers, tango dancers, and the dance chorus. All must understand the Latin temperament even if they don’t fit into the “look.” All shapes and sizes to play everything from Generals to Peasants. A fully featured, versatile ensemble that helps define this world. Movement ability a plus.
