Hickory – Tony Award winner for best musical, Evita is the smash pop opera about a passionate woman who went from the streets of Argentina to show business stardom, to the highest levels of influence in Buenos Aires. At once both a saint and a villain, Eva Peron’s dramatic, meteoric rise from poverty to prosperity is a groundbreaking – and heartbreaking – depiction of populism, politics, and celebrity.

Hickory Community Theatre is holding auditions for Evita by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice at 7:00pm on Monday and Tuesday, March 9th and 10th, with callbacks on Wednesday, March 11th. This is Pamela Livingstone’s last production as HCT’s Artistic Director.

Auditions will take place in the HCT complex at 30 3rd St NW, Downtown Hickory. The play calls for over twenty actors. There is also a need for six boys and girls. Auditions are open to everyone. Those auditioning should prepare a song in the same style as the musical and bring sheet music if possible.

Rehearsals begin Monday, March 16 at 7pm and will continue, Sunday through Thursday, until the opening performance.

The play will be performed in the Jeffers Theatre, May 8 – 24, 2020. All actors are required to be at all performances.
