Worthing Musical Comedy Society presents Evita: Based on the historical story of María Eva Duarte de Perón, a poor Argentinian girl who grows up to be the wife of the President of Argentina, worshipped by her people.

As a young woman who longs for an acting career, fame and fortune, Eva quickly learns that her feminine wiles hold power among a culture and a political system run by men. Once she makes it to Buenos Aires, Evita finds fame and, with her powers of seduction, eventually seduces the rising political figure, Juan Perón, who becomes the President of Argentina.

As First Lady of Argentina, she aligns herself with the poor, winning herself and Perón popularity among Argentinians. Evita becomes a heroine to the poor and the working class¬—and an enemy to the rich. A young and unknown revolutionary, Ché, narrates the rise and fall of the beloved matriarch of the Argentinian people.

This blockbuster musical, made even more famous as a 1996 Hollywood film starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, shows both the righteous determination and ruthless power of Argentina’s 20th century matriarch.

No upcoming performances.
