Photo Flash: A Look at the Cast of Resident Theatre Company's EVITA

Resident Theatre Company recently closed their production of Evita. Check out the cast's portraits below!

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Tony-Award winning musical follows the journey of Eva Peron from an ambitious 16-year-old girl who longed for an acting career, fame, and fortune, to the most powerful woman in Latin America, winning the love of her countrymen, and more than a few enemies along the way.

"Evita" was directed by award-winning Broadway veteran and RTC's Founding Artistic Director Kristin McLaughlin Mitchell, who's work on Broadway's Lend Me a Tenor was called "Genius" and "True comic delirium" by the New York Times. RTC's opening production of Monty Python's Spamalot, also directed by McLaughlin last spring, earned RTC its first four Barrymore Award nominations.

Aline Mayagoitia joined the RTC stage as Evita, the famed First Lady of Argentina. Mayagoitia is a bilingual native of Mexico who will star opposite Michael Yeshion, as the rising political force, President Juan Perón. This is the second time playing Peron for Yeshion. Robert Zelaya plays the part of Ché, the young well known revolutionary who narrates the rise and fall of the beloved matriarch of the Argentinian people.

The role of Magaldi, the singer and dancer who first brought Eva Peron to Buenos Aires was played by Pasqualino Beltempo. Juan Peron's mistress, noted only by that name, is played by Philadelphia actress Phoebe Gavula.

The cast was completed by an ensemble of nine professional actors. Nicole Calabrese, Anna Ferrigno, Dana Orange, Angel Sigala, Imanol Fuentes, and Daxx Wieser. They are joined on stage by three teenage actors, all natives of Chester County, Bailey Denmark, Cassidy Lennick, and Veronica Garrubbo.

The Resident Theatre Company put together an award-winning design team to bring this production to life, including set designer Brian Dudkiewicz; lighting designer Ethan Olsen; costume designer Kayla Speedy; props designer Angela Kozinski; and sound designer Ryk Lewis.

Dann Dunn choreographed, who was last seen in West Chester creating the choreography for Bullets Over Broadway for RTC last spring, and Gina Giachero served as music director.
