BREAKDOWN

[EVA] (Female identifying) Must be able to play ages 18 to 33 while projecting both a toughness and charisma. She is an ambitious and power-seeking woman, who rises to become the spiritual leader of Argentina by the age of 26. 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 dances.
[CHE] (Male identifying, 20s) 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. Must Dance. Che is the dissenting voice of the Descomisados (the Peron Supporters) and the narrator of the show, a radical who isn't reluctant to ask tough questions and demand answers. This character is dashing, impulsive, jealous, and manipulative.
[PERON] (Male identifying, 50s) A strong actor and singer. Vocal bass/baritone to high F. Must dance. An officer in the Argentinean army who rises to become the Argentine President. He is a man who is dignified, charming, and authoritative.
Story line: Based on true events, Evita tells the story of Eva Perón’s rags-to-riches life as she goes from poor provincial child to First Lady of Argentina. A champion of the working-class descamisados, she uses popularity and politics to serve her people – and herself. Featuring some of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most iconic songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” this musical masterpiece won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. The 1996 film adaptation was nominated for five Academy Awards, winning for Best Original Song.
