Teachers' Musical Society
After the success of last year’s production of the hysterical and fabulous The Producers, the Teachers’ Musical Society have decided to go in a completely diﬀerent direction with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s classic Evita. The show opens on Tuesday, 2 April and runs nightly until Saturday, 6 April. Teachers’ MS are delighted to be back once again in St Patrick’s College where they staged their first show in 2000 and they cannot wait to stage this iconic musical.
Evita charts the young and ambitious Eva Peron’s meteoric rise to sainthood. Set in Argentina between 1934-1952, the Tony-winning musical follows Eva Duarte on her journey from poor illegitimate child to ambitious actress to, as wife of military leader-turned-president Juan Peron, the most powerful woman in Latin America, before her death from cancer at age 33. The events in Evita’s life are presented in song and commented on by the show’s narrator, Che. Well-known numbers from Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical masterpiece include ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’, ‘Oh What a Circus’, ‘Buenos Aires’ and ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’.
The Teachers’ Musical Society feel privileged to be staging this show in 2019 as it would have been Eva Peron's 100th birthday on 3 May.
Evita opens with a preview night on Tuesday, 2 April and runs nightly at 8pm until Saturday, 6 April in DCU St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra, Dublin 9. Tickets are €17 opening night and €20 all other nights. For tickets log on to www.eventbrite.ie or email email@example.com.
