"Evita" comes to Lancaster in June

John Freeman

The Morecambe Amateur Operatic and Drama Society is bringing the highly acclaimed musical, Evita, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to Lancaster for the first time in June, at the Lancaster Grand Theatre.

Told entirely in song, the story charts the rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of the nation after marrying the miltary turned president, Juan Peron. Set in Buenos Aires between 1935 and 1952, the musical portrays Eva Duarte Peron in her journey from fatherless chld to ambitious actress, to the most powerful woman in Latin America and, eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death at the age of 33.

The show features such popular chart hits as 'Oh What a Circus', 'Another Suitcase' and thet timeless classic 'Don't Cry for Me, Argentina'.
