With music by Elton John and Lyrics by Tim Rice, Evita is the rags-to-riches story of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president Juan Peron.
Set in Buenos Aires between 1934-1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Peron on her journey from fatherless child to ambitious actress to the most powerful woman in Latin America-and, eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at age 33. The events in Evita's life are presented in song and editorialized on by the show's narrator, Che.
It will be performed at Shannondell Performing Arts Center, Audubon PA on November 4, 5, 11, 12, at 7:30 pm and November 6 and 13 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $14.25 and $17.50 and can be purchased online through Ticketleap
