Evita The Musical

14 October 2017 to 26 November 2017

Evita The MusicalPieter Toerien and David Ian present the original West End and Broadway production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Evita.

Rice and Webber’s seven-time Tony Award-winning musical Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise 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 to 1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Péron on her passionate and tragic journey from her humble beginnings as a 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.

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, and an Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, Rice and Webber’s Evita is iconic. Featuring some of the most loved songs in musical theatre, including “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “On This Night of a Thousand Stars”, “Oh What a Circus”, “High Flying” and more.

Starring Emma Kingston, Jonathan Roxmouth, Robert Finlayson and others.

Directed by Broadway director, Hal Prince. Prince has won 21 Tony awards, more than any person in history. As well as Evita, his directorial and producing credits include Candide, West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Show Boat, A Little Night Music, Follies, Cabaret and Fiddler on the Roof.

  1. I was very inspired by the movie and the soundtrack, so I would LOVE to see it live on stage with my 10 year old daughter.

  2. Would love to win tickets to Evita. I’ve visited Argentina and it would bring back memories and I can relate to the play. My brother will be visiting from Cape Town and it would be great to spend the evening at Montecasino on Saturday, 14 October.

  3. Would love to win tickets to see this musical,
    Would be a lovely way to spend the month honouring my mom, she passed 16 years ago in October and loved music, especially the classics.


    Don’t cry for me, Argentina
    The truth is, I never left you
    All through my wild days, my mad existence
    I kept my promise
    Don’t keep your distance

  7. Don’t cry for me, Argentina
    The truth is, I never left you
    All through my wild days, my mad existence

    Don’t keep your distance
    just look at these lyrics truly a beautiful story to come from that:)

  8. Ah! I’ve always heard about “Evita”, and follow it closely online from international tours around the world. I’d absolutely love to watch this rendition of Evita. Ever since I first heard “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, my heart was set on this musical. I got the opportunity of seeing Jonathan Roxmouth in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera”, and would love to see him in another great Lloyd Webber musical.

    My mom’s favourite! Now this would be such a great gift that will allow my mom and my wife to go have a girl’s night out! I am sure this will leave a lasting impression on them and leave them speaking about it for months to come! Allow me to be the hero in their lives…

  10. What an absolute joy this would be!! Have watched the movie Evita more times than I care to remember. This is such an awesome prize!
